Ancient Wheat Strains Trigger Adverse Reactions in People with Celiac Disease

Celiac.com 11/11/2014 - There have been claims that certain strains of wheat, especially ancient strains, such as einkorn, do not trigger adverse reactions in people with celiac disease, or that they trigger less severe reactions.

A research team recently evaluated the safety of ancient strains of wheat in celiac disease. The researchers included Tanja Šuligojemailemail, Armando Gregorinidemail, Mariastella Colombaeemail, H. Julia Elliscemail, and Paul J. Ciclitirac

To get a better idea of the nature of celiac factions to wheat, the team studied seven Triticum accessions showing different origin (ancient/modern) and ploidy (di-, tetra- hexaploid).

In all, they tested ancient Triticum monococcum precoce (AA genome) and Triticum speltoides (BB genome), accessions of Triticum turgidum durum (AABB genome) including two ancient (Graziella Ra and Kamut) and two modern (Senatore Cappelli and Svevo) durum strains of wheat and Triticum aestivum compactum (AABBDD genome).

They evaluated small intestinal gluten-specific T-cell lines generated from 13 celiac patients with wheat accessions by proliferation assays. They found that all strains of wheat they tested triggered a range of adverse responses, independent of ploidy or ancient/modern origin.

Based on these results, they suggest that all strains of wheat, even ancient strains previously suggested to be low or devoid of celiac toxicity, should be tested for immunogenicity using gluten-specific T-cell lines from multiple celiac patients rather than gluten-specific clones to assess their potential toxicity.

They also emphasize the need for celiac patients to follow a strict gluten-free diet, including avoidance of ancient strains of wheat.

My worst point in my illness, I consumed little to no wheat, but ate spelt and kamut. I was in TROUBLE! Please take this to heart and do not try older varieties of wheat thinking it will be same.

Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))

I'm curious to hear updates on your EC condition. Thanks

@Larkie how are you lips doing now? Have you found something that worked for you yet? I'm curious and eager for updates from anyone who overcame this condition. Thanks

The fullness of the Eucharist is found in the wine alone. However, glutenfreewatchdog did an article on the low gluten hosts recently. She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free brea...

You make me want to go to Montreal just to get croissants. I love a warm croissant with ham and swiss, melted, then lettuce, tomato and honey dijon mustard. Yum! I hear Schar sells croissants now. Will have to try once I get better.
