A safety reminder to those new to Celiac Disease and gluten sensitivity. There are many different enzyme products on the market that make it sound like you can eat gluten if you take their product fist.
Don’t be fooled.
They do not work. They are not approved by Health Canada or the FDA. The only cure currently available is a gluten-free diet.
As an example, there is a new one available in Kelowna called “Gluten Cutter”. On their website a testimonial from one of their customers states “I had been gluten-free for 4.5 years and hated every minute of it. Before being gluten-free, I was miserable eating gluten, always experiencing pain after pizza, bagels or any of my other favorite gluten-containing foods. Gluten Cutter has allowed me to enjoy these foods again without the pain or fear of getting sick”.
The site also states: “The statements and products shown on this website have not been evaluated by the US Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.”
Celiacs, don’t put your health at risk with these products. Follow your doctor’s instructions and stick to the gluten-free diet.
