Sažetak
In last years, wheat and gluten have been accused for obesity epidemics and nu¬merous health problems without clear scientific proofs. For that reason, consumption of cereal products, particularly bread, pasta, cookies and breakfast cereals has dropped significantly. In the same time, world gluten-free market shows an annual growth of 25-30%. However, wheat- and gluten- related disorders are rather rare: allergy affects about 0.3% of population, intolerance as celiac disease occurs in 1-2% of population, and sensitivity prevails in 5-7% of population. Some of misconceptions are that gluten causes metabolic disorders, addiction and overeating, and that elimination of gluten from diet cures diabetes, obesity, and rheumatic illnesses. Nonetheless, only individuals with genetic predisposition to celiac disease or medically confirmed allergy or sensitivity to gluten and other cereal proteins benefit from exclusion of gluten containing cereals from diet. For this population, development of nutrient dense and attractive gluten-free food is needed. Otherwise, gluten-free diet could result in nutritional deficiencies and low dietary fibre intake. Cereals are basics of human nutrition and regular consumption of wholegrain cereals have been proven to reduce risks for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, colon cancer, and favour weight management. Health Grain Forum Europe has launched Global research and communication project addressing wheat/gluten avoidance and consumers wellbeing for unravelling gluten and wheat toxicity.
