Coeliacs are people who suffer from a sensitive reaction to gluten, which is the protein found in wheat and rye. Similar substances are found in barley and oats. Since gluten damages the lining of the small intestine of coeliacs, it makes their ability to absorb adequate nutrients from food difficult, which results in severe illness resembling malnutrition. Coeliacs may be acutely ill with weight loss, tiredness, lethargy and breathlessness. The only treatment which can rectify a coeliac condition is a gluten-free diet. A coeliac must not eat any food which contains flour or wheat, barley or rye in any form. Ths means excluding bread, biscuits, crispbreads, cakes, pastry, pasta, breadcrumbs, semolina and food cooked in batter. Flour is also an ingredient in many tinned, packaged and processed foods as well as ready meals. A gluten-free diet can therefore pose major difficulties for the coeliac. This recipe book offers 200 recipes using special gluten-free flours, breads and pasta now available on the market, many of which coeliacs can obtain on a doctor's prescription.

This book is aimed at the millions of people suffering from sensitivity to wheat, dairy products and gluten. If you are told that you must follow a wheat, gluten or dairy free diet, where do you begin to work out what you can eat safely? One thing is for sure you will have to start cooking for yourself at home since there are very few ready meals available that will be suitable for your restricted diet. The simplest and safest course is to prepare your own meals, that way you will know for certain that your food does not include any hidden ingredients that might trigger your allergy or intolerance. Many people find cooking becomes a tyranny if they have to make family meals and then a small portion of allergy free food for one person. Simpler by far to prepare recipes that are delicious for the entire family, but if you have been used to relying on ready prepared meals you may not be a confident cook or you may not have a repertoire of dishes to rely on. This book will help you build up your confidence and encourage you to cook so often that you will become a stress-free cook.
