    After nearly a decade of high double-digit growth, the US market for gluten-free foods is set to level off to single digit rates in coming years, according to a study from Research and Markets.

    The firm's report, titled Gluten-Free Foods in the U.S., 5th Edition, looks at sales of gluten-free food across nine product categories, specifically traditional grain-based salty snacks and crackers, bread, pasta, cereal, making mix, cookies, flour and frozen dough.

    Word from the Great White north is that the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) is preventing the sale of Estrella Damm Daura, following a warning from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

    The SLGA, according to the company's website, is "a Treasury Board Crown Corporation responsible for the distribution, control and regulation of beverage alcohol in Saskatchewan. SLGA operates 75 retail liquor stores and there are approximately 600 private liquor retailers throughout the province."

    Dutch actress Famke Janssen is perhaps best known for her roles in movies like X-Men and Taken. But now Janssen is in the news after revealing that a serious intolerance to gluten has forced her to revise her diet and to go completely gluten-free.

    During an interview on U.S. cooking show The Chew, Famke, 52, says she had already taken a test for gluten antibodies, and that she "knew what the outcome was gonna be, I already knew it, so I was stuffing my face with everything that I could find that had gluten in it."

    Currently, a gluten-free diet is the only treatment recommended for people with celiac disease, or other medical sensitivities to gluten, especially those who show symptoms of gluten intolerance, such as vomiting and chronic diarrhea.

    Those folks may be in for a pleasant surprise, as the global market for various types of gluten-free flours looks set to takeoff over the next few years, driven in part by gluten-free flours made from amaranth, corn, maize, coconut and/or beans, among others.

    Gluten-free flours offer a number of benefits, including very high protein, good texture, and, in many cases, higher nutritional value and fiber content, compared with other grains.

    For years, industry observers, health experts and even food companies have questioned the staying power of gluten-free food.

    With more people than ever embracing gluten-free products and gluten-free diets, including a majority of folks who do not have celiac disease, gluten-free food has never been more popular. There have also never been more gluten-free products hitting store shelves.

    Do women who use dietary supplements during pregnancy face higher rates of celiac disease in their offspring?

    The study team examined the maternal use of vitamin D, n-3 fatty acids (FA) and Fe supplements during pregnancy and looked for any corresponding risk for celiac disease autoimmunity (CDA), or celiac disease, in their children.

    Raw materials used by breweries include barley. A characteristic feature of this grain is the presence of gluten proteins which also includes hordein. This group of proteins are the trigger of celiac disease symptoms [Darewicz, Dziuba, Jaszczak: "Celiakia – aspekty molekularne, technologiczne, dietetyczne." Przemysł Spożywczy, styczeń, 2011] . This issue raises the need to seek new methods of brewing that allow for the elimination of gluten proteins from the beer [Swora E., Stankowiak-Kulpa H., Mazur M. 2009. Dieta bezglutenowa w chorobie trzewnej. Nowiny Lekarskie 78, 5-6, 324-329]. The biggest problem for coeliac patients is to identify permitted foods. Food manufacturers know about the above problem and are offering new products for people with celiac disease.

    Sibling Revelry Brewery (say that three times fast), is a tiny northeastern Ohio company dedicated to brewing quality brews in small batches.

    The company's name may not roll off the tongue easily, but their gluten-free beer tastes good enough that brewmaster Pete Velez is planning a second batch.

    Called Em Sav Saison, the limited-release beer is the company's first gluten-free brew. Described as having "aromas of sweet spice and Chardonnay that leads to a bright fruity body with a dry, semi-tart finish," it comes in at 5.8 percent alcohol, with 35 International Bittering Units.

    The people at the 9 White Deer brewery have heard your whispered wishes and responded with Stag Saor. Ireland's first gluten-free stout, a beer that puts a fresh twist on the Emerald Isle's long stout-brewing tradition.

    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.

    Are so-called fad gluten-free dieters getting a bad rap? Could some of them be onto something? There's been a lot of talk in the media and among researchers about the large numbers of people who adopt a gluten-free diet without a celiac disease diagnosis. Many of these dieters are regarded with a bit of suspicion. The question areises as to whether gluten was causing them any problems that could be improved by a gluten-free diet. Most have been regarded as simple fad dieters.
