Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder wherein consumption of gluten products damages villi in the lining of the small intestine, making it hard for the body to absorb nutrients that results in immediate and long-term health problems. There is no "cure" for Celiac disease, and to avoid the related health problems a gluten-free diet is recommended. Sources of gluten include: wheat, rye, barley, oats, malt, brewer's yeast, and all their derivatives (more comprehensive lists below). Any potential cross-contamination of wheat should be avoided as well.
