A gluten free diet requires the avoidance of all sources of gluten in the diet. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye and barley.
The good news is that there are many foods that are naturally gluten free:
ALL foods made from wheat, barley, rye and their flours must be avoided:
‘Pure’ uncontaminated oats can be tolerated by the majority of people with coeliac disease.
If in doubt, check with your healthcare professional, or look in Coeliac UK’s Food & Drink Guide.
Allergen labelling means that you can tell from the ingredients list whether a packaged food contains gluten. Always check the ingredient list. Allergens will be highlighted in bold.
To help you make safe choices please consult Coeliac UK’s Food & Drink Guide.
