Attention fellow and sister celiacs and gluten intolerants,

We could really use some pushback on this medically and scientifically in accurate media blitz which is promoting false information on wheat and celiac. I commented on Kara Rowe, the Washington Wheat Grower's director, on the other thread. Rowe is a normal person who went gluten free for 1 month and then wrote it made no difference. While this is typical of the wheat lobby, it is not relevant to celiacs or gluten intolerants, who will react much differently when they eat wheat, and become sick. But a far more dangerous thing is seen below:

Rowe believes her diet shows the need for agriculture to engage the public.

"It's OK to have those uncomfortable discussions and still be moderate and respectful," she said. "We have a lot of issues coming at us in the next decade, and the worst thing we could do is not be open and hold a conversation with the public."

(Craig) .... Hunt said agriculture needs to show the public that farmers are working to cater to their needs. For example, they produce Einkorn flour for people with celiac disease.

Rowe envisions a day when the agriculture bands together to lead a healthy lifestyle and promote itself, such as participating in events like Spokane's celebrated Bloomsday race wearing "Body By Gluten" shirts.

"I would love for the farming community to be the poster children of healthy living," she said. "We as a farming community need to get healthy and be our own best advocates as far as nutrition and health goes."

Einkorn Flour is a type of wheat, which contains gluten, and is NOT SUITABLE FOR CELIACS or GLUTEN INTOLERANTS.

For "registered dietician" Craig Hunt, or Kara Rowe to suggest that einkorn wheat is suitable for celiacs is not only wrong from a medical standpoint, but from a moral standpoint, plus it is false marketing.

This is not about having a "polite dialogue." This is deliberate ill will being displayed, from a certain aspect of the agricultural grain lobby.

Please note that this misinformation is also spreading as far as having recent edits of the wikipedia article suggest that einkorn wheat does not affect those with gluten intolerance as much as modern wheat (you can see the editing history).

Thank you for addressing that! I live in Washington State and Einkorn pasta was in the gluten free section of the store, so my boyfriend bought it and made it for me, but I didn't know what it was and wasn't with him when he got it. I had ONE bite and IMMEDIATELY got very sick and had a migraine that ended up putting me in the hospital after 4 days. How dare them claim that it's safe for someone with Celiac's to eat. That's beyond cruel.
