Aha! NRCD

Interesting article in this month's edition of crossed grain magazine, talking about non-responsive coeliac disease (NRCD). This may explain why some of us continue to have symptoms and gut damage eating "gf foods" that contain wheat starch, sugars, barley malt and gf oats. For those of us who have to follow a "supersensitive gf diet" its a massive frustration that barley malt is not labelled on gf beer (despite being present in nearly all if them) and that a huge amount of gf foods contain wheat derived starches, dextrose and syrups which aren't labelled as such and are legally allowed to be labelled "wheat free"!
