Well, if you read the article, it states " new research suggests these folks may also react to non-gluten wheat proteins."

 

So, it is also all the OTHER proteins in WHEAT   that trigger our symptoms. It's not any additional foods, it's nothing new for those of us with celiac because  it's still wheat we shouldn't be eating.  

 

It's bigger news for non-celiacs because :

Now several studies hint that so-called gluten sensitivity might not always be caused by gluten. In some cases, the problem may be entirely different proteins—or even some carbohydrates. “We're so used to dealing with gluten as the enemy, but it might actually be something else,” says David Sanders, who teaches gastroenterology at the University of Sheffield in England. Joseph Murray, a gastroenterologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., agrees: “I'm starting to feel more uncomfortable calling it nonceliac gluten sensitivity. I think it might be better to call it nonceliac wheat sensitivity.”

In laboratory tests, wheat proteins known as amylase-trypsin inhibitors have stimulated immune cells in plastic wells to release inflammatory molecules called cytokines that can overexcite the immune system. In laboratory tests, wheat proteins known as amylase-trypsin inhibitors have stimulated immune cells in plastic wells to release inflammatory molecules called cytokines that can overexcite the immune system.

Well, I did read the story, I read it over several sources as a matter of fact and could not figure out what the news was because if you are celiac you wouldn't be eating wheat anyway so I thought maybe there was something else to the story that the reporters just didn't get or understand.  <_<
