Many think that celiac disease is an intolerance of our times; in fact, it probably dates back to ten thousand years ago. Gluten intolerant people have "normal" genes, but they are regulated differently. In fact, they trigger adverse reactions in front of a common food molecule, gluten, a protein complex composed of two types of proteins: gliadins and glutenins, present in the seeds of some cereals (wheat, spelled, rye, barley, spelled, triticale) and in all the foods that contain it. It is in the presence of water that the insoluble proteins present in the wheat come together to give rise to gluten.
Celiac disease is a chronic intestinal intolerance of inflammatory nature, on a food basis, which is triggered in individuals genetically predisposed when they consume gluten causing an autoimmune reaction to gluten. In particular, the cells of the immune system, activated by exposure to gluten, attack the mucosa of the small intestine, coming to destroy the villi "atrofing". The mucous is flattened and no longer does its job of assimilation of nutrients (mineral salts, vitamins, lipids and carbohydrates).
Worldwide celiac disease affects 1% of the population; In Italy, according to the latest report from the Ministry of Health, there are more than 164,000 people who suffer from it. The only therapy currently available for celiac disease is a diet with total and permanent exclusion of gluten-containing foods. Many gluten intolerant people think that following a gluten-free diet is restrictive and limiting, but a varied and balanced gluten-free diet however provides all the necessary macro and micronutrients and is this one of the objectives of the company EsSenza Glutine. For us to exclude from the diet the "gluten" does not mean failing to the basic rules of healthy eating or failing to the principles of the "Mediterranean diet" and does not even bind to the concept of "waiver". From high quality raw materials and with the guarantee of the absence of gluten and lactose, we produce many products, from the simplest to the most complex to offer the customer a wide choice of products so that every day can enjoy a varied diet and Tasty, without depriving oneself of the pleasure of good food.
