Beth Hillson  Not so long ago, I spent every weekend making homemade pasta, pizza crust and bread so my son and I could eat “normally.” Having store-bought pasta, pizza and bread has been life-changing.

LIVING WITHOUT ‘s GLUTEN FREE & MORE

Eve Becker  With the passage of FALCPA, the food-allergy labeling law, wheat was no longer a hidden ingredient—a huge relief. When my daughter was diagnosed in 2006, I drove almost an hour to a store for exclusively gluten-free food. When I got there, it was so small and depressing, I cried in the car. Good gluten-free food is now readily available—a huge change.

So Much to Celebrate wenty years ago, I was sitting at my desk in Northern Virginia when the phone rang. It was a woman from Chicago who wanted my help in starting a magazine for people with celiac disease. After multiple years of miserable illness, Peggy Wagener had finally been diagnosed with celiac disease. She wanted the publication to spread the word about the disease in the hopes of saving others from a similar struggle. This was my introduction to the concept of celiac awareness. It’s fitting that our 20th anniversary issue hits newsstands in May, Celiac Awareness Month. We started as Living Without (I’m wearing our old apron, above) and changed our name to Gluten Free & More in 2014 to better reflect the magazine’s positive outlook. Over these 20 years, we’ve chronicled wonderful, amazing, headspinning changes. I asked the GF&M team to share a few of their big game-changers. Here’s what’s shifted in their personal landscapes:

as someone in your household gone vegan? You’re not alone. Vegan and vegetarian lifestyles and food choices are trending among millennials. They’re eating more plant-based meals than any generation before them. What’s the gluten-free cook to do when there’s a vegan in the house? Arm yourself with delicious and nutritious recipes like this one. You can keep the whole family well fed without doubling the workload.

Asian-Style Ramen Salad

Dressing

MAKES 2 SERVI NGS

½ cup high-quality or craft ginger soda 1 tablespoon peanut butter, cashew butter or sunflower seed butter 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil 1 teaspoon sriracha or to taste 1 teaspoon gluten-free tamari or coconut aminos

Gluten-free ramen isn’t just for soup. These curly noodles provide a fun base for this fresh Asian take on a noodle salad. The ramen salad can be customized for your taste or allergies by choosing a nut or seed butter that works for your diet. If you’re not serving the salad immediately, toss it with half of the dressing. Reserve the other half to freshen the salad right before serving. This recipe is easily multiplied to feed a crowd. 1 (70-gram) cake gluten-free ramen ½ Persian cucumber, halved and thinly sliced ¼ cup shredded carrots ¼ red bell pepper, thinly sliced 2 scallions, white part only, thinly sliced ❧ Fresh cilantro, chopped, for garnish

28  www.GlutenFreeandMore.com  June/July 2018

To make the dressing, whisk together ginger soda, nut or seed butter, sesame oil, sriracha and tamari in a small bowl. 3. Combine ramen, cucumber, carrots, red bell pepper and scallions in a large bowl. 4. Toss ramen and vegetables with dressing until ingredients are evenly covered. Top with cilantro.

Carrot Cake Breakfast Shake MAKES 1 BIG OR 2 SMALL SERVINGS

On nights when you’re steaming vegetables for dinner, pop in some extra carrots to use in this smoothie the next day. A cool treat for breakfast, it isn’t over-the-top sweet. The pinch of salt helps heighten the cinnamon and brighten the overall flavor, so don’t be tempted to omit it.

4 ounces steamed carrots (about 3 medium), cooled 1 medium to large very ripe frozen banana, broken into chunks 2 medium Medjool dates, pitted (optionally soaked in warm water and drained, to soften) 3/4 cup unsweetened plain dairy-free milk beverage or lite coconut milk 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

❧ Generous pinch salt ❧ Pinch pure stevia powder or 1 tea- spoon sweetener of choice, optional ½-1 cup crushed ice, optional

1. Put carrots, banana and dates in a blender and cover with milk beverage or lite coconut milk. Pulse to break up the fruit and then blend until smooth. 2. Add cinnamon, vanilla and salt and blend to combine.

Chilled Pea or Lentil Salad M A K E S 6 TO 8 S E R V I N G S

This healthy, filling salad is delicious no matter what vegetables you choose to add in. Spice it up with your favorite salsa, green chiles and lime, to suit your taste. If you like it really hot, add a dash of gluten-free hot sauce when serving.

When there’s no time to cook peas or lentils, try Hilary’s Eat Well Millet Medleys, available in your supermarket’s freezer section. They’re gluten-free and vegan—and already cooked.

1 cup dry split peas or lentils 2 cups water or gluten-free broth 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 onion, chopped 5-8 stalks asparagus, chopped 1 red, orange or yellow bell pepper, chopped 1/2–1 cup sliced mushrooms 1 cup salsa of choice (hot, medium or mild) 2 tablespoons chopped mild green chiles 2 tablespoons lime juice, more for garnish 1/2 tablespoon chili powder 1-2 teaspoons ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lime peel or dried lemon rind 11/2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, halved or quartered 3 cups fresh baby spinach leaves 1 lime, cut into wedges, for garnish ❧ Gluten-free corn tortilla chips, optional

1. Rinse split peas or lentils and place in a medium saucepan. Cover with water or broth and bring to a boil. Immediately reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook 20 minutes or until peas or lentils are still somewhat firm but not hard (or according to package directions). Drain and set aside. 2. Place oil in a large skillet and heat skillet to medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté it until translucent. Then add asparagus, bell pepper and mushrooms and cook until just softened. Continue stirring and cooking while adding salsa, chiles, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, oregano and lime peel. Just before removing from heat, stir in tomatoes and cooked, drained lentils. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and set aside. 3. To serve, cover each plate with a bed of fresh spinach leaves. Top with lentil salad.

Southern Potato Salad MAKES 8 SERVI NGS

Everyone loves a good potato salad. This Southern spin on the traditional includes yellow mustard and apple cider vinegar for a slight tang, enhanced by a dollop of crunchy sweet relish.

y favorite Julia Child quote is, “A party without cake is just a meeting.” Whether you’re celebrating Gluten Free & More’s 20th anniversary (as we are) or your own special event, how better than with cupcakes? After all, a cupcake is simply a mini cake in a

44  www.GlutenFreeandMore.com  June/July 2018

convenient, self-serve package. The number one seller at my bakery is and always has been a chocolate cupcake. Here’s the winning recipe, along with ways to dress it up and make cupcakes the hit of your next celebration.


GF&M’S 20TH ANNIVERSARY TREATS P R E P: 2 0 M I N U T E S | B A K E : 2 5 – 3 0 M I N U T E S

Chocolate Cupcakes M A K E S 2 4 TO 2 5 C U P C A K E S

This recipe is the little black dress of cupcakes. You can dress it up with a variety of fillings, frostings and decorative toppings or keep it basic with a simple vanilla or chocolate frosting. For a deeper chocolate flavor, increase the cocoa powder in this recipe by ¼ cup (to 1 cup total) and increase the milk by ¼ cup (to 2¼ cups total). This recipe can be made egg-free; see instructions. 3 cups Dee’s Gluten-Free Flour Blend or all-purpose flour blend of choice ¾ cup cocoa powder 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (omit if already in your flour blend) 2½ cups sugar 1 cup canola oil or vegetable oil of choice 5 large eggs, room temperature* 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 cups rice milk or milk of choice

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place cupcake liners in 24 to 25 cupcake tins.

2. Sift together flour blend, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt and xanthan gum (if using). Set aside. 3. Place sugar in the large bowl of an electric mixer. At low speed, slowly add oil and mix until combined. Scrape down sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. At medium-low speed, add eggs, one at a time, incorporating each egg into mixture before adding the next. Scrape down sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Add vanilla. Increase mixer speed to medium-high and mix well 2 minutes. Scrape down sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. 4. Add half the sifted dry ingredients to the batter and mix on low speed to just combine. Slowly pour half the milk into the batter, mixing the batter gently to absorb the milk. Scrape down sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Add remaining dry ingredients to the batter and repeat the process, slowly adding remaining milk. Scrape down sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.

Specialty baker Diane “Dee” Kittle, owner of Dee’s One Smart Cookie in Glastonbury, Connecticut, has been contributing much-loved recipes to Gluten-Free & More for over a decade. Many of our all-time most popular cake recipes were developed by Dee over the years. These chocolate cupcakes, along with mix-and-match frostings and fillings, are her latest addition to our list of champions. We covered Dee in 2008 soon after she learned she had celiac disease after enduring years of illness, medical tests and multiple surgeries. To read Dee’s inspiring story, including her determination to create delicious bakery goods for those with celiac disease and food allergies, go to GlutenFreeAndMore.com/DeeKittle.

5. Increase mixer speed to medium-high and mix 2 minutes until batter is smooth. Scrape down sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. 6. Transfer batter to lined cupcake tins with an ice cream scoop. Batter should come to within an 1/8 of an inch of the top of each cupcake liner for a nicely rounded baked cupcake. 7. Place cupcake tins in preheated oven, preferably on the middle rack, and bake about 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. 8. When done, take cupcakes out of oven and let cool on a wire rack. Remove cupcakes from cupcake tins and proceed with filling, frosting and decorating, as desired.

*Egg-Free Solution

For Egg-Free Chocolate Cupcakes, omit 5 eggs. Combine 5 tablespoons flax meal with ¾ cup hot water; let sit to thicken at least 15 minutes. With a wire whisk, briskly whisk flax meal mixture by hand up to 1 minute. (This adds air to the mixture and significantly increases the volume.) Add this mixture all at once to sugar/oil combination in step 3 to replace 5 eggs. Proceed with recipe as instructed.

DEE’S EGG-FREE TIPS

Each cupcake (without frosting and filling) contains 254 calories, 10g total fat, 1g saturated fat, 0g trans fat, 42mg cholesterol, 225mg sodium, 39g carbohydrate, 2g fiber, 22g sugars,

Allergic to Flax?  If you’re allergic to flax, use your favorite egg replacement instead of flax meal.

3g protein, 25Est GL.

Good to Know  I don’t recommend replacing more than 5 eggs in a recipe. It affects the structure of the batter. So if you want additional egg-free cupcakes, don’t double the recipe. Simply make it a second time.

Dee’s Gluten-Free Flour Blend MAKES 3 CUPS

2 cups brown rice flour, white rice flour or combination ¾ cup potato starch (not potato flour) ¼ cup tapioca starch/flour 1. Mix ingredients together until well combined. 2. Refrigerate in a tightly sealed container until used. Bring to room temperature before using. Each cup contains 576 calories, 3g total fat, 1g saturated fat, 0g trans fat, 0mg cholesterol, 8mg sodium, 129g carbohydrate, 5g fiber, 1g sugars, 8g protein, 87Est GL.

Make Ahead  At my bakery, we prepare several small containers of “flax meal eggs” each night to use the next day. Here’s the recipe to replace 1 egg: Mix 1 tablespoon flax meal with 3 tablespoons hot water in a small container and let sit a few minutes to thicken. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove from the refrigerator as you prepare to bake. Place mixture in a small metal or glass bowl and whisk vigorously to increase its volume. Use this to replace 1 egg in your recipe. Increase recipe as necessary to replace up to 5 eggs.

rain health is directly influenced by the food we eat, says psychiatrist Drew Ramsey, MD, assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University. The author of three books on food and brain health, Ramsey is at the forefront of nutritional psychiatry, a science-based movement focused on the impact of food on mental health. His newest book, Eat Complete: The 21 Nutrients That Fuel

Brainpower, Boost Weight Loss, and Transform Your Health, is dedicated to helping protect our biggest asset: the brain. Nutrient-dense foods—fresh vegetables, leafy greens, nuts, olive oil, seafood and grass-fed meat and dairy—form the core of Ramsey’s overall approach to wellness. These recipes, excerpted from Eat Complete, show you how easy it is to put tasty, highnutrient gluten-free dinners on your table.

Cast-Iron Steak Dinner with Buttery Cauliflower Mash MAKES 4 SERVI NGS

This recipe is a foolproof way to hear “Now that’s a perfect steak!” Preheating the skillet is key, and cast iron is recommended—it gets hotter compared with other skillets, resulting in a nice sear. Ditch the traditional potatoes for this cauliflower mash; it delivers 75 percent fewer carbs and more vitamin C.

FOR YOUR HEALTH Each serving provides: Vitamin B12 = 129% Vitamin C = 104% Protein = 100% Zinc = 99% Choline = 68%

1 head cauliflower, cut into florets 4 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped 1/3 cup grass-fed whole milk 2 tablespoons unsalted grass-fed butter ½ teaspoon garlic salt ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric 4 (8-ounce) grass-fed steaks, such as shell steak, strip, rib eye or flatiron ¼ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon olive oil

1. Fit a large stockpot with a steamer basket, put in 2 inches of water and bring to boil. Add cauliflower florets, cover and steam 6 to 8 minutes until very tender when pierced with a fork. Set aside to cool 4 to 5 minutes. 2. Put garlic, milk, butter, garlic salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and turmeric in a food processor along with cooked cauliflower and process until smooth. (You may need to do this in batches.) Add a few tablespoons of warm water if the mixture doesn’t blend smoothly, to adjust the consistency. Transfer mixture back to the stockpot to keep warm while you prepare the steak. 3. Preheat skillet over high heat about 1 minute until very hot. Sprinkle steak with salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Put oil in the skillet. Add steak and cook 6 to 8 minutes, turning once or twice, until a sear forms and meat is medium rare. For a medium steak, cook 2 to 3 minutes more. 4. Transfer steak to a cutting board. Tent lightly with aluminum foil and let rest 5 minutes. Serve warm with cauliflower mash. Each serving (one 8-ounce steak & 1½ cups mash) contains 401 calories, 56g protein, 9g carbohydrates, 16g fat (6g saturated), 142mg cholesterol, 3g sugars, 3g fiber, 443mg sodium.

For Dairy-Free Cauliflower Mash, replace the milk with an equal amount of milk of choice. Omit the butter.

hy be cooped up in the kitchen? These warmer days and nights are the perfect excuse to cook outdoors. And there’s almost no food that isn’t made better on the grill. Grilling is so versatile. Think beyond the usual suspects (burgers, hot dogs, chicken breasts) and use your grill to make tacos, salad and even soup. These recipes, which break away from hamburger’s long shadow, are guaranteed to get you all fired up.

Grilled Romaine Wedge Salad MAKES 4 SERVI NGS

Grilling imbues wedges of romaine lettuce with smoky flavor and tender texture and it makes cherry tomatoes become impossibly sweet. Add a chunky vegetable-bean medley and a punchy pesto dressing, and you’ve got an extraordinary salad.

PHOTOGRAPHY BY MATTHEW KADEY

Salad 2 heads romaine lettuce, halved 4 teaspoons canola oil or grapeseed oil, divided ❧ Salt and pepper, to taste 1 pint cherry tomatoes 1 English cucumber, chopped 1 yellow or orange bell pepper, chopped 1/2 cup chopped parsley 1/3 cup sliced kalamata olives 3 scallions (green onions), sliced 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar 1 (14-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed 1/4 cup pistachios, chopped walnuts or roasted sunflower seeds 1/2 cup crumbled feta, optional

2. Lightly brush romaine halves with 2 teaspoons oil and season with salt and pepper. Place romaine halves cut-side down on grill and cook, turning once, until leaves are charred in a few places and slightly wilted, about 4 minutes. 3. Thread cherry tomatoes onto skewers and lightly brush with 2 teaspoons oil. (If using wooden skewers, soak them in water first for 30 minutes.) Grill, turning once, until tender and beginning to shrivel. Alternatively, cook in a grill basket 4. In a bowl, toss together grilled tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, parsley, olives, scallions and red wine vinegar. 5. To make pesto dressing, whisk together olive oil, pesto, red wine vinegar and garlic in a small bowl. 6. Transfer grilled lettuce, cut-sides up, to serving plates. Top with tomato mixture and drizzle on pesto dressing. Sprinkle with chickpeas, nuts or seeds and feta, if using.

Pork tenderloin is often overlooked when it comes to grilling but it’s a fuss-free protein to cook and tends to resist drying out more than chicken breast. Top it off with this flame-licked salsa for a taco night worth remembering. 1 pound pork tenderloin 2 teaspoons canola oil or grape seed oil ❧ Salt and pepper, to taste 1/2 cup sour cream or mayonnaise of choice 1 teaspoon grated lime zest 2 teaspoons hot sauce 8 corn tortillas or small gluten-free tortillas, warmed 1 cup cooked or canned black beans, drained and rinsed, for topping

Pineapple Salsa 1 ripe avocado, halved, pit removed 1 red bell pepper, sliced into quarters 1/2 small red onion, sliced into 2 wedges 3 (3/4 inch thick) slices pineapple 2 teaspoons canola oil or grapeseed oil 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint ❧ Juice of ½ lime 1/4 teaspoon salt

Healthy Homemade Bars

Easy, delicious

& budget-friendly

PHOTOGRAPHY BY OKSANA CHARLA

W

ith the wide variety of gluten-free, allergy-friendly snack bars available these days, why bother making your own? The answer is that fresh homemade bars are easy, delicious and budget-friendly. Plus, homemade is a great way to control ingredients. You decide how much sweetener to add. You pick the kind of dried fruit you like. The amount of fiber (think flax meal, oats, coconut and nuts) is in your hands. If you’re allergic to nuts, you can use sunflower seeds and sunflower butter instead. And you can pack extra protein into your bars, making them a healthy, filling snack or in a pinch, a grab-and-go meal. Price is a real consideration. The cost of my favorite packaged bars ranges from $1.25 to over $3 each, making homemade bars a true bargain. Yes, it’s wonderful to have so many different kinds of bars available. (See our top choices on page 64.) But if you want to control the cost, ingredients and flavor, try these delicious recipes.

bite? Researchers were unclear about the underlying mechanism. They concluded, however, that ongoing climate change is likely to make these allergic reactions more common. The study was presented at the 2018 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology and World Allergy Joint Congress.

Anaphylaxis in Children A study of almost 2,000 children admitted to North American pediatric intensive care units (PICUs) during 2010 to 2015 provides valuable insight into how anaphylaxis presents in children. The most common trigger for anaphylaxis was found to be food, with reactions to peanuts prompting about 45 percent of food-induced reactions. Tree nuts and seeds made up 19 percent of cases; milk caused 10 percent. More children died due to peanut and dairy reactions than

any other food-induced anaphylaxis. PICU admission due to anaphylaxis happened more frequently to children 6 to 18 years old. About 19 percent of patients required tracheal intubation, a treatment used less frequently in children aged 2 to 5. Researchers found that hospital admission for anaphylaxis happened more during the fall months. Other common causes of anaphylaxis included reactions to drug, blood products and venom. Urging better recognition, education and more rapid treatment of anaphylaxis, author Carla M. David, MD, said that “unassigned epinephrine at schools can be a huge tool,” calling it “an important initiative that should be supported.” The research was presented at the 2018 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology and World Allergy Joint Congress.

New Allergic Disorder: MCAS Researchers from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health examined Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), a newly recognized disorder that can cause a range of chronic symptoms, including food allergies and anaphylaxis. The condition, which appears to be inherited, was identified in 2007; diagnostic criteria were introduced in 2010. Symptoms, which are caused by mast cells incorrectly releasing chemical mediators, can negatively impact multiple systems throughout the body. For the study, the team identified 51 patients with MCAS at the University of Wisconsin Allergy Clinic. Almost all were female (94 percent) with an average age of 45. The most common conditions associated with MCAS were allergic disease (67 percent), hypothyroidism (31 percent), depression (31 percent), EhlersDanlos Syndrome (a group of inherited disorders that strike connective > p. 78

Use this chart as a guide to help select replacement gluten-free flours for all your baking. While not identical, the flours in each column have comparable baking characteristics and serve a similar function in building structure in recipes. If you can’t tolerate a certain flour or you’ve run out, find another flour in the same column (not row) and use it as a substitute.


Substitution Solutions DAIRY Milk Depending on the recipe, replace 1 cup cow's milk with 1 of the following:

1 1 1 1 1

cup rice milk cup fruit juice cup coconut milk cup goat's milk, if tolerated cup hemp milk

Buttermilk Depending on the recipe, replace 1 cup buttermilk with 1 of the following:

1 cup soy milk + 1 tablespoon 1 7/8 7/8 7/8

lemon juice or 1 tablespoon cider vinegar (Let stand until slightly thickened.) cup coconut milk cup rice milk cup fruit juice cup water

Yogurt Depending on the recipe, replace 1 cup yogurt with 1 of the following:

1 cup soy, rice or coconut yogurt 1 cup unsweetened applesauce 1 cup fruit puree

EGG

Depending on the recipe, replace 1 large egg with 1 of the following: Flax or Chia Gel: 1 tablespoon flax meal, ground chia seed or salba seed + 3 tablespoons hot water. (Let stand, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes or until thickened. Use without straining.)  gg Replacer: Ener-G Foods E egg replacer or Follow Your Heart VeganEgg, according to package directions Aquafaba: See GlutenFreeAndMore.com/aquafaba Tofu: 4 tablespoons pureed silken tofu + 1 teaspoon baking powder Applesauce: 4 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce (or other fruit puree) + 1 teaspoon baking powder IMPORTANT! Replacing more than two eggs can change the integrity of a recipe. For recipes that call for a lot of eggs, like a quiche, use pureed silken tofu, if soy is tolerated. Because egg substitutions add moisture, you may have to increase baking times slightly.

Butter (1 stick = 8 tablespoons = ½ cup = 4 ounces) Depending on the recipe, replace 8 tablespoons butter with 1 of the following: 8 tablespoons Earth Balance (Non- Dairy) Buttery Sticks 8 tablespoons Spectrum Organic Shortening 8 tablespoons coconut oil 8 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil For reduced fat: 6 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce + 2 tablespoons fat of choice

NUTS Depending on the recipe, replace tree nuts or peanuts with an equal amount of 1 of the following: Toasted coconut flakes, Sunflower seeds, Toasted sesame seeds (use only 2 to 3 tablespoons), Crushed cornflakes, Crushed crispy rice cereal, Crushed potato chips OR Pumpkin seeds

Nutritional analyses of recipes are based on data supplied by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and certain food companies. Nutrient amounts are approximate due to variances in product brands, manufacturing and actual preparation.

General Guidelines for Using Xanthan or Guar Gum Gum (xanthan or guar) is the key to successful gluten-free baking. It provides the binding needed to give the baked product proper elasticity, keeping it from crumbling. ■ Add ½ teaspoon xanthan or guar gum per cup of flour blend to make cakes, cookies, bars, muffins and other quick breads.  ■ Add 1 teaspoon per cup of flour blend to make yeast bread or other baked items that call for yeast. ■ Add 1½ teaspoons per cup of flour blend to make pizza dough or pie crust. Note: If you purchase a commercial flour blend, read the ingredient list carefully. Some blends contain salt and xanthan or guar gum. If so, there is no need to add more.

Quick-Start Guide | CASEIN-FREE DIET

A

casein-free diet has been found to be beneficial for a number of people for a variety of reasons. A gluten-free and casein-free (GF/CF) diet has provided positive results for many people diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, such as autism, Asperger’s syndrome, atypical autism and pervasive developmental disorder. Currently, there are no double-blind studies proving the efficacy of the GF/CF diet in autism spectrum disorders. Several open studies conducted in Europe and the United States do provide strong positive data. There is also voluminous anecdotal evidence on the efficacy of the dietary approach. When removing dairy from the diet, it is vital that adequate calcium and vitamin D be added in the form of fortified milk substitutes or acceptable vitamin and mineral supplements. Guidance from a qualified physician or nutritionist is strongly advised.

tissues, 24 percent), POTS* (24 percent), anxiety (24 percent) and GERD (24 percent). All presented with a skin complaint and 90 percent reported gastrointestinal symptoms. Foods, medications and stress/ anxiety were the most common reported triggers of symptoms. Researchers concluded that MCAS is a predominantly female disorder that most often presents with skin and gastrointestinal symptoms. They found a positive biomarker in two-thirds of the patients. Many questions remain about MCAS and further study is needed. The research was presented at the 2018 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology and World Allergy Joint Congress. *For more about POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome), go to GlutenFreeAndMore. com/POTS.

RESEARCH ROUNDUP C O N T I N U E D F R O M PA G E 7 6

Before it was understood that celiac disease could be treated with the gluten-free diet, it wasn’t unusual for young children who had the condition to waste away and die. Italian researchers wondered if the drop in mortality rates of celiac children under 5 over the past 20 years is contributing, at least in part, to the growing prevalence of the disease. They conducted a review of the medical literature to find out. Looking at rates of celiac disease in school children from 1995 to 2011, they discovered the drop in the death rate of kids under 5 with celiac disease mirrored the increased rate of the condition. Thus, with fewer children dying of the disease, its prevalence was growing. The team concluded that the number of people with celiac disease will increase as faster diagnoses, new developments and the gluten-free diet continue to ensure the survival of kids who have the disease. The study was published in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition.


GLUTEN-FREE DIET | Quick-Start Guide

H

ere is a simple overview of the gluten-free diet. Not all areas of the diet are as clear-cut as portrayed by this guide. This is intended to be used as a temporary survival tool until additional information can be obtained. Understanding these dietary requirements will enable the newly diagnosed to read labels of food products and determine if a product is gluten-free. Celiac disease is a life-long genetic disorder affecting children and adults. When people with celiac disease eat foods that contain gluten, it creates an immune-mediated toxic reaction that causes damage to the small intestine. This does not allow food to be properly absorbed. Even small amounts of gluten in foods may affect those with celiac disease and cause health problems. Damage can occur to the small bowel even in the absence of symptoms. Gluten is the generic name for certain types of proteins contained in wheat, barley, rye and their derivatives. Research indicates that pure, uncontaminated oats consumed in moderation (up to 1/2 cup dry oats daily) are tolerated by most celiacs. Gluten-free oats (purity protocol) are currently available in the United States. Consult your physician or dietitian before including oats in your diet and for regular monitoring.

Call First You can verify ingredients by calling or e-mailing a food manufacturer and specifying the ingredient and the lot number of the food in question. State your needs clearly—be patient, persistent and polite.

If In Doubt, Go Without Don’t eat a food if you are unable to verify the ingredients or if the ingredient list is unavailable. Regardless of the amount eaten, if you have celiac disease, damage to the small intestine occurs every time gluten is consumed, whether symptoms are present or not.

Wheat Free Is Not Gluten Free Products labeled wheat free are not necessarily gluten free. They may still contain spelt, rye or barleybased ingredients that are not gluten free. Spelt is a form of wheat.

Keep in mind

➥ What about alcohol? Distilled alcoholic beverages and vinegars (except malt vinegar) are usually gluten-free. Distilled products do not contain any harmful gluten peptides unless a gluten-containing flavoring is added after distillation. Wine is gluten-free. Unless labeled otherwise, beers, ales and lagers are NOT gluten-free.

The key to understanding the gluten-free diet is to become a good label reader. Don’t eat foods with labels that list questionable ingredients unless you can verify they do not contain or are not derived from prohibited grains. Labels must be read every time foods are purchased. Manufacturers can change ingredients at any time. Wheat used in products is identified on the label. Products bearing “gluten free” on the package must contain less than 20ppm gluten.
