what is gluten sensitivity?
Gluten sensitivity is a newly recognised condition which could potentially affect up to 6% of the population*.
Medical studies have shown that people who do not have coeliac disease or wheat allergy but have symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, fatigue and headaches could have gluten sensitivity. The symptoms of gluten sensitivity can be managed by following a gluten free diet.
