World celiac disease day
These activities are part of World Celiac Disease Day, which was launched on May 5 in order to raise awareness in the community about gluten intolerance, a protein found in some grains (wheat, oats, barley, rye: CAGR).
Celiac disease is prevalent among the population of our country because, according to estimates by the country’s Ministry of Health, it is estimated that one in every hundred people suffers from it. The characteristics of the disease determine the quality of life of sufferers and their families. Once diagnosed, treatment consists only of a strict diet of gluten-free (ALG) foods, which must be maintained for life.
