What happens if a celiac woman becomes pregnant?
A woman with celiac disease can get pregnant without any problem and must follow a gluten-free diet.
What is the difference between allergy and food intolerance?
Allergy is an excessive reaction of our immune system, which, to defend itself against the ingestion of some foods, causes even severe allergic reactions. On the other hand, food intolerances are those disorders that occur in the digestive system (especially in the intestine) that prevent the food from being absorbed correctly, causing physical discomfort caused by poor digestion.
How does gluten affect the body of a celiac person?
The ingestion of gluten in an undiagnosed celiac person ends up causing atrophy of the villi of the small intestine, not absorbing nutrients correctly, and generating nutritional deficiencies that can lead to serious and irreversible diseases.
Are Breadfree`s products maintain the texture and flavor as products with gluten?
Yes, since we make products with conventional wheat flour, which we will later transform into gluten-free flour.
Are the children of a celiac person more likely to also be celiac?
Yes. Although Celiac Disease (CD) has a certain hereditary component, it is not transmitted in a predictable way
