Can Microbial Fermentations with Lactic Acid Bacteria Create Better, More Healthy Gluten-free Products?

Celiac.com 05/02/2013 - Even though gluten-free baked goods are getting slowly better than in the past, many gluten-free baked goods on the market today taste worse than their traditional counterparts made with wheat flour, and may also lead to nutritional deficiencies of vitamins, minerals and fiber. Thus, the production of high-quality gluten-free products has become a very important issue.

A team of researchers recently set out to determine how microbial fermentation with lactic acid bacteria might be used to make better gluten-free products.

The research team included E. Zannini, E. Pontonio, D.M. Waters, and E.K.Arendt of the School of Food and Nutritional Sciences at the University College Cork in Western Road, in Cork, Ireland.

Their recent article in Applied Microbiology and Microtechnology reviews the role of sourdough fermentation in creating better quality gluten-free baked goods, and for developing a new concept of gluten-free products with therapeutic and health-promoting characteristics.

Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parent...

It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge. Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chas...

I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed ce...

Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA al...

This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven? My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an...
