What Is Coeliac Disease?

Coeliac disease is a chronic autoimmune disorder that involves a reaction to gluten in the small intestine. Gluten is a type of protein found in wheat, barley rye and some oats. Common symptoms of coeliac disease include diarrhoea, abdominal distention and pain, bloating and loss of appetite. In some cases of coeliac disease, symptoms go unnoticed or patients are asymptomatic. It is also important to distinguish Coeliac disease from non-coeliac gluten sensitivity and gluten intolerance. Unlike coeliac disease, both gluten sensitivity and gluten intolerance do not cause damage to the lining of the small intestine. (1)

Who Is Affected By Coeliac Disease?

Coeliac disease reportedly affects 1 in 70 Australians, however approximately 80% of this number remain undiagnosed. Coeliac disease affects people of all ages and genders, and although the exact cause of the disease is not known, a genetic predisposition to develop coeliac disease must be present. There are two important genes associated with coeliac disease, HLA DQ2 and HLA DQ8. Although half of the population carry one or both of these genes, only 1 in 40 of these people will actually develop coeliac disease. Environmental factors such as gastrointestinal infection during early childhood may also play an important role in triggering coeliac disease across the life cycle. (2, 3)

How Does Diet Interact?

People with coeliac disease must maintain a life-long gluten-free diet to avoid and minimise damage to the small intestine. This means removing all breads, pasta, cereal, biscuits, cake and other processed foods containing gluten. Careful attention should be paid to the labelled ingredients of processed foods and sauces, as many of these may contain sources of gluten that are not commonly known. While the trend of gluten-free diets has led to production of many gluten-free alternatives to bread, pasta, biscuits and other processed foods, people with coeliac disease are advised to consume these food products in small amounts, as many of these are highly processed and contain several food additives and preservatives. (3, 4)

Be Fit Food’s Gluten Free Range

98% of Be Fit Food meals are gluten free and therefore are coeliac friendly. Our dietitian-led team are advocates for ensuring that different dietary requirements and food allergens are catered for. When it comes to gluten we abide by Australia's food standards code, and we regularly test our products adhering to a strict manufacturing protocol to ensure that there is no detectable gluten so our products that are labelled as gluten free are safe for people with coeliac disease.

Be Fit Food meals created by doctors and dietitians at Be Fit Food, contain a range of whole grains that are gluten free and high in protein, including quinoa, brown rice and buckwheat noodles, as well as high protein, low carb pasta. We also use many different legumes as an extra source of dietary fibre and protein. To find out more you can book a free dietitian phone consultation via our website or call 1300 263 257.
