Coeliac disease is an autoimmune condition caused by a reaction to gluten which is a protein found in wheat and foods made with wheat and its relatives.
Linseed is a completely gluten-free food
Linseed cannot cure coeliac disease but it can be a great new addition to your diet. It opens up endless possibilities for tasty and comforting foods and is a useful ingredient. Gluten-free flours are often pure starch and rather bland so for extra, old-fashioned home-baking flavour replace about 20% of other flour in gluten-free recipes to make more tastier, more succulent bread and cakes – and far more nutritious.
Flax Farm Ground Linseed Meal is a very sustaining gluten-free food. Many people now use a couple of heaped dessert spoonfuls of Flax Farm Freshly Ground Linseed in foods such as soup or even scrambled egg as an alternative to having bread..
When you can’t eat wholegrain cereal it’s difficult to get enough fibre for a healthy digestion. Linseed is rich in the right sort of fibre. Just adding two heaped dessertspoons of linseed meal to your daily diet is a good starting point for a truly healthy digestion.
