Is Starbucks' new breakfast sandwich really gluten-free? Photo: Starbucks Gluten-free Breakfast Sandwich--Starbucks

Starbucks has a new Gluten-Free Breakfast Sandwich that looks yummy. But, why does their website feature a disclaimer saying the company cannot guarantee the absence of allergens, including wheat?

The company website uses boldface type to tout the "gluten-free"-ness of the new offering, noting that the sandwich uses a "gluten-free roll," is "prepared in a certified gluten-free environment," and sealed "in its own oven-safe parchment bag to avoid any cross-contamination." Sounds good, so far, perhaps even safe for celiacs.

Can new wheat crops give celiac sufferers an alternative to a gluten-free diet? A new study published in the journal Food Chemistry shows that even the ancient varieties of wheat that have not been subject to hybridization, contain toxic epitopes that trigger adverse autoimmune response in celiac patients. What makes gluten toxic to people with celiac disease? Also, what is the relationship between various kinds of wheat and their celiac toxicity?

More Italians are being diagnosed with celiac disease than ever before.

According to the Report to the Parliament from the Ministry of Health, 182,858 Italians were diagnosed with celiac disease, compared with less than 172,000 in 2014; an increase of about 6%.

Researchers really do not have really good data on rates of celiac disease in the general population of children in the United States. A team of researchers recently set out to estimate the cumulative incidence of celiac disease in adolescents born in the Denver metropolitan area. Their team collected data on HLA-DR, DQ genotypes of 31,766 infants, born from 1993 through 2004 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Denver, from the Diabetes Autoimmunity Study in the Young.

Do you have an autoimmune disease? Does someone you know? Did you know that the numbers regarding autoimmune rates are all over the place, and that incomplete or wrong information can result in delayed or missed diagnoses? Want to help researchers create a database that will help them understand exactly how many people are living with autoimmune conditions?

When screening arthritis patients for celiac disease, should HLA be done before serology? During the past decades, an accumulating evidence shows a dramatic rise in the frequency of autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and gastrointestinal conditions, such as celiac disease.

Recent studies of adult celiacs have suggested that complete, not just partial, mucosal recovery and healing is possible, but, in many cases, may take longer than is currently understood.Recently Dr. Hugh James Freeman of the Department of Medicine, Gastroenterology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada, conducted a study to assess healing time in celiac patients.

A team of researchers recently set out to determine whether there might exist ethnic differences in celiac disease autoimmunity in children at 6 years of age, and if present, to assess how these differences may be explained by known sociodemographic and environmental factors.

Will flour from cockroaches be the future of gluten-free baking? Photo: CC--SiamesePuppy

It\'s cheaper, more nutritious, and properly delicious. Will gluten-free flour made from cockroaches change the way bread is made?

Oh, and it happens to be gluten-free. Excited yet? Grossed out?



Are prescriptions the best way to help cealiac sufferers in the UK? Photo: CC--Mike Licht

Attack on prescriptions for celiac sufferers sparks strong debate. The Brits are having a bit of a dustup over the best way to help people support with celiac disease. Currently, Britain\'s National Health Service supplies prescriptions for gluten-free food staples for people with celiac disease. Seemingly, no one disagrees with medical experts that celiac suffers should get support from the National Health Service to buy certain staple gluten-free products.

Dermatitis herpetiformis is an autoimmune skin-blistering disease which is commonly associated with celiac disease. The most common treatments are a gluten-free diet along with the addition of dapsone. DH that does not respond to either a gluten-free diet, or to dapsone, is treated with other immune-suppressing medications, but results have been mixed. Now, for the first time, a patient treated with rituximab therapy had resolution of both his pruritus and skin rash.



What factors are most important in helping young men with celiac disease to remain gluten-free? Photo: CC--katieg93

Previous studies have shown us that men are generally less troubled living with celiac disease than are women, but most studies of men with celiac disease have been mostly quantitative, and have a bio-medical emphasis. A team of researchers recently set out to explore the social experience of young men with screening-detected celiac disease and to highlight daily life situations five years after diagnosis.  Self-assurance, authority, and confidence are key factors to a successful gluten-free diet for young adult men.

Do people with celiac disease face higher levels of arsenic and mercury levels? Photo: CC--Matt Brubeck

Could increased exposure to arsenic and mercury be unintended consequences of eating a gluten-free diet? Do people who eat a gluten-free diet face an increased exposure to toxic metals like arsenic and mercury, and thus possibly higher rates of cardiovascular disease, cancer and neurological effects? That\'s a very possible scenario, according to a report published in the journal Epidemiology.

It’s no secret that psychological symptoms can be associated with celiac disease, but until recently, no one had really done a solid prospective study on children. A research team has now done just that. In this case, they looked at a group of children with celiac disease autoimmunity, which is persistently positive celiac disease–associated tissue transglutaminase autoantibodies (tTGA).



How well do celiacs tolerate gluten-removed beer? Photo: CC--Divya Thakur

A number of commercial brewers are opting to use enzymatic digestion, or hydrolysis, for treating gluten-containing foods and beverages to make them safe for people with gluten sensitivity, including those with celiac disease. However, some have questioned whether the process is safe for all people with celiac disease, as some celiacs complain that they experience gluten sensitivity when they drink these beers. Currently, there are no validated testing methods for quantifying levels of hydrolyzed or fermented gluten peptides in foods and beverages that might be harmful to celiac patients. This makes it difficult to determine the safety of hydrolyzed products for people with celiac disease.
