On Celiac Disease Awareness Day, learn 5 gluten-free recipes

Being diagnosed with celiac disease means being more careful about your diet. It is a disorder that affects the small intestine and prevents the absorption of nutrients found in food. You can blame gluten, a protein found mainly in wheat, rye and barley, for this. Suffering from celiac disease means you need to opt for gluten-free foods as much as possible in your diet. Let’s check out gluten-free recipes on National Celiac Disease Awareness Day, which is celebrated annually on September 13th.

What is celiac disease?

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that affects the gastrointestinal tract, also known as gluten-sensitive enteropathy, explains Haripriya. N, Executive Nutritionist, Cloudnine Group of Hospitals, Chennai. This condition is triggered by gluten in the diet, where it causes chronic inflammation of the lining of the small intestine. If you have celiac disease, there will be poor absorption of nutrients such as fats, vitamin B12, folic acid, iron, calcium and other micronutrients if you are not careful about what you eat.
