What else do you need to know?

Advice from an expert Nutritionist, before you take your test.

  • What is Coeliac Disease?
  • Allergy & Intolerance prevalence in the UK
  • Food labelling
  • Post-test analysis: What is an Elimination Diet?

Coeliac disease is an autoimmune condition where the body mistakes the protein gluten, found in wheat, barley and rye, as a threat to the body and attacks it. This damages the lining of the small intestine producing inflammation and physical symptoms.

A staggering 44% of British adults now suffer from at least one allergy and the number of sufferers is on the rise, growing by around 2 million between 2008 and 2009 alone. Almost half (48%) of sufferers have more than one allergy (Mintel, 2010)

There are 14 foods which must be labelled and identified as ingredients on all pre-packed food:

Cereals containing gluten, crustaceans, eggs, fish, peanuts, soybeans, milk, nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews, pecan nuts, Brazil nuts, pistachio nuts, macadamia nuts), celery (including celeriac), mustard, sesame, sulphur dioxide/sulphites, lupin, molluscs

An elimination diet is the removal of foods, which have been identified as causing an allergic or intolerant reaction, from your daily diet.
