Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Celiac disease (CD) is an autoimmune disorder occurring in genetically predisposed individuals, and triggered by the ingestion of dietary gluten, the major protein component in wheat, barley and rye. In many areas of the world, CD is one of the commonest lifelong disorders affecting approximately 1% of the general population. Treatment of CD is based on the lifelong exclusion of gluten-containing cereals from the diet. The changes needed to begin and maintain a gluten-free diet (GFD) are substantial and have a major impact on daily life. Over the past 30 years the developments in the nutritional aspects of celiac disease have been huge. Nutrient deficiencies have been described in celiac patients both before and after diagnosis, due to intestinal malabsorption and specific limitations of the GFD, respectively. The relationship between the level of gluten intake and intestinal damage has been analyzed leading to new Codex Alimentarius recommendations on the gluten threshold in gluten-free food. Contamination with gluten of the GFD is an important issue in CD management. The spectrum of cereal toxicity for CD patients has been investigated with practical implications on the GFD. The nutritional quality of gluten-free food is constantly improving thanks to the new scientific approach in the technology of gluten-free wheat substitutes. The purpose of this special issue is to provide a summary of contemporary issues and invite contributions that describe new insights into the dietary management of CD.
