Gluten Free - special dietary requirements for coeliac disease A gluten-free special dietary requirements diet is paramount to people who suffer from coeliac disease or dermatitis herpetiformis (a gluten induced skin sensitivity). gluten is a mixture of proteins (glutenin and gliadin) found in some cereals, particularly wheat gliadin component of gluten is responsible for coeliac disease.
Gluten Free Requirements - coeliac disease gluten-free special dietary requirements diet is not the same as a wheat-free diet, some gluten-free foods are not wheat free. it is still unknown how or exactly why gluten harms the gut. complete avoidance of all foods made from or containing wheat, rye, barley and usually, oats.

Lactose Intolerant a type of food intolerance - inadequate amounts of the lactase enzyme available to break down lactose- the disaccharide in milk –into glucose and galactose Management involves firstly finding the lactose dose that the person can tolerate without symptoms, Secondly maintaining a balanced diet which provides adequate amounts of calcium and other nutrients provided by dairy foods.
Dairy Free Diet The aim of the Dairy-Free Diet is to eliminate major and minor sources of dairy foods and their derivatives in order to prevent symptoms of the food intolerance or allergy from occurring A dairy intolerance or allergy is often implicated in eczema, sinusitis, rhinitis, headache, migraine, asthma and digestive disturbances.
DIET SHOULD BE ADEQUATE IN CALCIUM The following non-dairy foods are good sources of calcium: 1. Soy products. Use soy milk (fortified with calcium), soy-based yoghurts and tofu ice-cream. 2. Fish with soft, edible bones such as sardines, herrings and tinned salmon. 3. Green vegetables such as Chinese greens, kale and broccoli. 4. Almonds, brazil nuts, sunflower and sesame seeds. 5. Baked beans. 6. Calcium-fortified cereals and bread (check labels).
DIET SHOULD ELIMINATE 1. Dairy (animal) milk in all forms - whole, skim/skimmed, modified milk, evaporated and condensed milk, milk powder, non-fat milk solids, whey, buttermilk. 2. Cream, ice-cream, yoghurt, custard, dairy desserts, mousses, cheesecakes, milk chocolate. 3. Cheese, cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, cream cheese, cheese spreads, cheese slices, cheese- flavoured snack foods, milk-based sauces, mornays. 4. Butter and margarine (small amounts of milk protein). NOTE: Check all food labels for ingredients derived from animal’s milk such as whey, non-fat milk solids, casein, caseinate. Some people may be able to tolerate goat’s milk but often this contains the same allergenic proteins as cow’s milk. http://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/health/reference/20082008/dairy-free-diet/index.html
Nut Allergy Allergic reaction to nuts can progress rapidly to anaphylaxis. Peanut allergy is responsible for more deaths than any other type of allergy. strictly avoiding nuts, including peanuts and tree nuts like cashews and walnuts, and food containing nuts is the only way to prevent a reaction it is not always easy to avoid these foods since many unsuspecting products contain nuts. http://www.webmd.com/allergies/guide/nut-allergy

Common Food Allergens A food allergy is an immune system response to a food that the body mistakenly believes is harmful. Although an individual could be allergic to any food, such as fruits, vegetables, and meats, there are eight foods that account for 90% of all food-allergic reactions. These are: milk, egg, peanut, tree nut (walnut, cashew, etc.), fish, shellfish, soy, and wheat. Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and may cause death.
