General Information on a No-Wheat Diet Plan or Celiac Disease
What is Celiac Disease?
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease. In people with celiac disease, gluten, the main protein in wheat, barley and rye, acts as a foreign antigen, triggering an immune response that damages the lining of the small intestine. This results in mal-absorption of fat, calcium, iron, foliate, and other nutrients. Learn more about MyFoodMyHealth's diet plan for Celiac Disease.
Symptoms of Celiac Disease
- Multi-system disorder which primarily targets the small intestine.
- Inability to properly absorb vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.
- May cause unexplained infertility and express as fatigue, peripheral neuropathies, migraines, osteoporosis, dermatitis, depression, lactose intolerance, fat intolerance, and more.
- Most people with the disease show no symptoms of celiac disease. It can remain dormant in your system for years.
- Gluten initiates an inflammatory process by reacting with intestinal immune cells. The gluten in gluten-containing products cannot be absorbed through the skin.
Diagnosis of Celiac Disease
- Celiac disease affects 1 in 100 people. 97 percent of sufferers are undiagnosed.*
- Celiac disease may cluster with other autoimmune diseases, particularly Diabetes I. (Eight to ten percent of diabetics are thought to have celiac.*)
- Celiac disease may be misdiagnosed as IBS, colitis or Crohn's disease.
- You can be gluten intolerant or gluten sensitive and NOT have celiac disease.
- An endoscopy is the gold standard for diagnosing celiac disease.

Risk Factors for Celiac Disease
Celiac disease is commonly found in Caucasians of Northern European descent. Celiac disease is hereditary and cannot be outgrown. If you have it, chances are a parent or other relative also has the disease.
Ingredients to Watch for On Your Food Labels
If you have celiac disease in order to make informed buying decisions you must be well aware of ingredients that may contain gluten or its derivatives. When in doubt, consult your pharmacists or call the 1-800 number of the manufacturer to find out if gluten or a derivative has been used.
|Caramel Color||This is made from corn. It is safe in a celiac diet.|
|Citric Acid||This is made from corn. It is safe in a celiac diet.|
|Dextrin||Producers in the United States claim to use corn, so domestically produced dextrin should be safe in a celiac diet.||Imported dextrin could be made from wheat. If so, it might not be gluten-free. Check your food label.|
|Flavors (artificial and natural)||Barley malt, which is sometimes used as a flavoring, and flavoring used in meat products may contain gluten. If so, it should be listed clearly on the label. In rare instances, barley malt is used as a flavoring but not identified on the label.|
|Hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP) or Hydrolyzed plant protein (HPP) -||Usually processors use “hydrolyzed soy protein”, which is safe in a celiac diet.||In rare instances, processors neglect to identify the “vegetable” in HVP. This could be wheat. Wheat is unsafe.|
|Malt||If made from corn it is safe in a celiac diet.||Malt is usually made from barley. Malt extract, malt flavoring, malt syrup, and malt flour are also made from barley. None of these ingredients are safe.|
|Maltodextrin||Wheat may sometimes be used in imported products. If so, it will be listed on the food label as “maltodextrin (wheat)” or “wheat maltodextrin.” This is unsafe.|
|Mono and Diglycerides||Fats are naturally gluten-free.|
|Seasonings||Seasonings may contain anything. Be careful with seasonings.|
|Soy sauce||Use Tamari instead of soy sauce.||Many soy sauces are fermented from wheat, which is unsafe. Check with the processor for information.|

|Starch||Starch is always cornstarch. Cornstarch is safe in a celiac diet.|
|Modified food starch||Modified food starch listed on a food label could be wheat starch. This is unsafe.|
|Sweeteners||Sweeteners can be unsafe. Read the labels for the use of gluten.|
|Malt Vinegar||Contains malt. This is unsafe.|
