Oat giant Nairn's is looking to gluten-free oats to grow its sales. Photo: CC--Kari Csaba

Anyone who knows their oats will tell you Nairn's is a familiar name in the industry. The iconic Scottish grocery brand began making that name as Nairn's Oatcakes in 1896, when John and Sarah Nairn set up a village bakery in Strathaven, Lanarkshire. More than 120 years later, it has grown from cottage industry to large-scale production, with about 150 workers, and revenues in excess of £27 million this past year.

But consumer tastes, and challenges in production, retail and marketing all press the firm to adjust operations to keep pace, according to managing director Martyn Gray.

A lawsuit claims that Colonial Williamsburg kicked an 11-year-old gluten-sensitive boy out of Shields Tavern earlier this year are drawing attention and sharp comment.

The boy, identified in court documents only as “J.D.,” suffers from a medical condition that prevents him from eating the same food as his classmates, and the restaurant’s policy specifically forbids outside food.

The lawsuit claims that, even after a teacher tried to persuade the manager to let him stay, the manager forced J.D. out of the restaurant, where he ate his lunch in the rain.

What is the effect of gluten-free diet on cerebellar MR spectroscopy in gluten ataxia?

Gluten ataxia is defined as sporadic ataxia with positive antigliadin antibodies without an alternative cause. Gluten ataxia patients often receive MRS at baseline and again after a period on a gluten-free diet.

A research team recently set out to evaluate the effect of gluten free diet on magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) of the cerebellum in patients with gluten ataxia.

There have been a number of studies showing a strong connection between celiac disease and dental enamel defects (DEDs), however, the exact relationship is still unclear.

They also wanted to compare the performance of different serological tests and to see if the suggested criteria can be simplified.

Can avoiding cow milk-based infant formulas help kids avoid celiac disease later on? Photo: CC--Rémy Abel

Some evidence indicates that feeding in the first months of life might have an impact on the risk of later celiac disease.

Numerous patients with celiac disease or type 1 diabetes show high levels of antibodies against cow milk proteins. For infants with genetic susceptibility for type 1 diabetes, avoiding of cow’s milk-based formula can lower the levels of diabetes-associated autoantibodies.

Could the same be true for celiac disease?

It's no secret that nearly all traditionally brewed beers contain barley. The flavor and body barley imparts on traditional beers is partly responsible for their rich, full taste.

Finding alternatives to barley that are suitable for brewing gluten-free beer has been a challenge. One solution has been to brew beers with traditional barley ingredients, and then use a combination of enzyme action and filtration to render a final product that test below 20ppm gluten required for gluten-free products.

The GFCO was founded in 2005 by the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America (GIG) to offer independent certification to manufacturers of gluten-free products.

GFCO certification is accredited to ISO 17065, and assures consumers with gluten sensitivities that a product meets the strict gluten-free standards. In most cases, GFCO standards exceed those of Codex, US, Canada, the EU and many other country standards for gluten-free products. For example, the GFCO guarantees that all products with its logo contain 10ppm or less of gluten.

Enzymes are playing an increasing part in both the treatment of celiac disease, and in the manufacture of gluten-free baked goods.

DSM recently showcased their new rice-based baker's enzyme, Bakezyme, at the annual meeting of Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) in Las Vegas. The product took DSM two years to develop and perfect, and promises to improve the softness and moistness of gluten-free bread.
