Adverse Immune Responses

Many natural products, including cereals and other common foodstuffs, induce allergic responses in susceptible individuals. In such cases, after appropriate diagnosis, the individual should avoid the foodstuff responsible. Celiac disease (gluten enteropathy) is a condition characterized by a severe adverse immu-nological gastrointestinal reaction to gliadin, which is a component of gluten, the viscoelastic protein found in wheat and other cereals. Celiac disease is prevalent in all regions where wheat is commonly consumed, and its incidence may reach 0.5% of the population. Celiac patients must exclude gluten from their diets. Thus, products containing wheat, rye, barley, and triticale are not permitted. Although oats were originally proscribed, it is now becoming increasingly clear that they are safe for celiac patients.
