What is celiac disease? And what about Glutenfreiheit?


What is celiac disease?

Celiac disease is caused by a genetic predisposition. It is triggered by gluten, a protein that is found in wheat, barley or oat. Thus, celiacs cannot eat any pizza, pasta, beer anymore.

Gluten can trigger symptoms like diarrhea, deficiency symptoms and cancer in the worst case. The only treatment is a lifelong, gluten-free diet. Without exceptions!
