Irina is a mom of two children who have been diagnosed with celiac disease.
The only cure for this disease is a strict gluten-free diet for life. This means that you cannot eat grains (wheat, rye, barley) and also hundreds of other different products. Bread, sweets, sausages, yogurt and ice cream are forbidden, the same with birthday celebrations, cafes, restaurants and travelling.
The project Gluten-Free Experts will teach food manufacturers how to produce safe gluten-free products, and restaurants – how to cook gluten-free. Patients with celiac disease will gain the freedom of choose and will no longer be socially isolated because of their special dietary needs. Food producers will gain a new profitable niche, whereas people with celiac disease – the joy of a full-fledged life.
