Celiac disease is a sensitivity to gluten, resulting in an autoimmune response in which the small intestine villi are damage thereby preventing nutrients from being absorbed. People with Celiac disease must follow a gluten-free diet to avoid nutrient deficiencies and other health consequences.
Starting a gluten-free diet can interfere with making an accurate diagnosis for Celiac disease, so be sure to check with your healthcare provider before starting a gluten-free diet.
All fresh fruits and vegetables; meat, poultry & fish; beans and lentils; nuts and seeds; most dairy products (check label for any gluten-containing fillers); and starches such as corn, rice, potato, parsnip, turnip, yucca and all other tubers are naturally gluten-free. Be aware of gluten-containing ingredients that may be used when cooking these foods, such as batter or breading. *Oats are naturally gluten-free but some are processed in the same facility as wheat so there is potential for cross-contamination from shared production or harvesting equipment.
