Celiac disease is a chronic autoimmune disorder that occurs in people who are genetically predisposed to it. When people with celiac disease consume gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley, it can trigger an immune response that damages the lining of the small intestine, leading to malabsorption of nutrients and other health problems. There is no cure for celiac disease, but it can be managed with a gluten-free diet.

For people with celiac disease, adhering to a gluten-free diet can be a daunting task. It requires a lot of vigilance and a careful reading of ingredient labels, as gluten can be present in unexpected food items such as sauces, dressings, and seasonings. Eating out can also be a challenge, as cross-contamination can occur if food is prepared on surfaces that have come into contact with gluten-containing ingredients.

Despite these challenges, there is a growing awareness of the need for gluten-free options, and many restaurants and food companies are incorporating gluten-free options into their menus. This is good news for the estimated 1% of the population who suffer from celiac disease, as well as for those with non-celiac gluten sensitivity and other gluten-related disorders.
