Coeliac disease is an intolerance to gluten, an ingredient in many everyday foods including bread. Due to an increase in public awareness, many supermarkets and health food stores now stock gluten-free products and ingredients. This makes it easier than ever before to recreate your favourite recipes without worrying about causing an allergic reaction. Gluten-free and low-carb foods are also suitable for those on a low Glycemic Index diet. Use the gluten-free mix that you make in place of the flour used in a standard bread recipe.
