Coeliac disease is an auto-immune disease that hinders the small intestine from absorbing nutrients. Individuals suffering from coeliac disease must follow a gluten-free diet. Gluten is a protein found in many grains including wheat, rye, and barley. It is not difficult to find easy and delicious coeliac recipes.
A diagnosis of coeliac disease does not have to mean the end of delicious foods. Sufferers are not limited to bland diets. As a matter of fact, a coeliac diagnosis can start patients on the road to a healthy and exciting new diet.
Baking tends to be the most difficult area for those searching for coeliac recipes. Gluten is the ingredient that gives cakes their spring and provides bread with its elasticity. Baked goods, therefore, will not have the exact characteristics as goods baked with standard baking flours. With a little practice, cooks can quickly learn to bake delicious breads and cakes using gluten-free flours.
