Celiac disease: Diet without gluten
Following a gluten free diet might seem very simple, starting from the elimination of those cereals that naturally contain gluten.

Because of this, many naturally gluten free foods can be risky for celiac health.
Celiac disease: What to eat and What not?
Gluten is naturally present in cereals such as wheat, rye, barley, oats, spelled and kamut. Therefore, all flours or foods made from these ceres should be eliminated, which are strictly forbidden by agglutinated feeding stuffs.
Patients with celiac disease is not recommended intake of flours made from cereals not containing gluten that can be produced in establishments that work prohibited foods (e.g. corn starch), because during the production may come into contact with substances that are not gluten free.
