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.

Photo: Wikimedia Commons SA3.0Until now, researchers haven't been able to say for certain that celiac disease patients react adversely to all varieties of wheat, or whether there may be differences in reactions to certain strains.

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.

If you have celiac would you eat their gluten free sandwiches? The place is full of gluten buns, the employees use new gloves yes...but they touch the gluten buns then by hand pull each ingredient from each bin CCing each bin of ingredients as they go.....the place is a CC nightmare and the logis...

You can make almond meal, or coconut porridge, there are some instant paleo porridge ready to go grain free ones....you can also use Miracle Rice blended in to give it oatmeal texture. If you miss flap jacks look up coconut flour ones if you want a mix look up Simple Mills Pancakes mix it is grai...

Ah ok, the bloating was fairly extreme and immediate.. which is quite unusual for me as normally there is a 24hr delay. Maybe I just overloaded my system.

Thanks for all the replies everyone - its very useful to have the support, particularly as my gp today said 'a tiny but if gluten three times won't cause an upst stomach for weeks' I just wanted to print off the entire forum for him to read!!

Subway announces gluten-free buns at all stores in Canada. But only for a limited time? Is the company trolling us? View the full article
