Study measures gluten in gluten-free labeled restaurant food
(Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health) Even tiny amounts of gluten in foods are troublesome for people with celiac disease, and restaurants may be the hardest places to avoid the protein, finds a Columbia study. More than half of gluten-free pizza and pasta dishes in restaurants tested positive for the presence of gluten; about one-third of supposedly gluten-free foods had detectable gluten. Gluten-free pasta samples were positive in 51 percent of tests; gluten-free pizza contained gluten for 53 percent. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Study: Some Gluten-Free Food At Restaurants Are Not Free Of Gluten
BOSTON (CBS) – While going gluten free has become a popular fad, for patients with celiac disease, even small amounts of gluten in their diet can make them sick. But a new study from Columbia University finds that many so-called gluten-free offerings at restaurants are not, in fact, free of gluten. More than 800 people around the country used a portable device to determine the presence of gluten in foods served at restaurants. Gluten was detected in almost a third of foods labeled “gluten free”, but was present in more than half of all gluten-free pizzas and pastas. Interestingly, restaurant foods were mo...

Researchers Think Some Food Additives May Contribute To Celiac Disease
BOSTON (CBS) – New research suggests that a common food additive may contribute to or even cause celiac disease and experts are calling for warnings on food labels until further research is done. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder where gluten causes the immune system to attack the gut. While genetics play a role, what actually triggers celiac disease is unclear. Now researchers believe food additives may contribute, in particular, microbial transglutaminase, which is used in the processing of sausages, cheese, bread and other products. More research is needed to determine whether this food additive is a direc...
