Ellen Bayens of theceliacscene.com has given us some great articles to look at this month. Somehow, she found an article written on the issues of cross contamination in restaurants in Malta. It’s amazing to see that celiacs in another part of the world with a very diverse cuisine from ours have the same issues ordering food in restaurants. As well there is an interesting study that was done recently looking at the blood tests done with children and how indicative they are of a final diagnosis of celiac disease. The aim of this study is to identify a benchmark level for blood tests that would indicate a biopsy for a child is not necessary.
We discuss the curious issue of Novak Djokovic, the international tennis star who has publicly said that he is on a gluten free diet for his health. There is more behind this story, and much of it will leave you with more questions than answers.
Are you familiar with the FODMAP diet? Ellen explains the premise of the diet and how it is being used by some celiacs who are struggling to gain remission from their symptoms. In Episode 93 of this podcast, I interviewed Steven J. Singer, who runs Fody Foods, helping those who are using the diet as a tool towards better health.
Ellen gives us more information on how you can post questions on Instagram for Selena DeVries @celiac_dietitian. As well Selena offers a focused Facebook group for those with persistent symptoms, along with courses and assistance on her website www.healthbean.ca.
Ellen and I go on to speak about food including the Taco Revolution foodtruck, Trumps Foods Hazelnut Torte on Amazon.ca, the Everyday Gluten Free Gourmet online cooking classes and Stella’s Perogies, which my daughter recently found in Ontario at a Metro store.
