CAN COELIACS FOLLOW THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET?

Of course! As long as there are no issues requiring specific dietary intervention, the only change that coeliacs need to make to their diet is to exclude gluten.

Every other principle of correct alimentation, also relating therefore to the “Mediterranean Diet”, remains valid, given that there is no difference in nutritional requirements between the celiac who excludes gluten and the non-coeliac.





WHEAT IS THE CEREAL ON WHICH THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET IS BASED:
WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS OF GIVING IT UP?

No problems! Although cereals are different, the composition of all cereals is similar and is suitable for satisfying the nutritional requirements of human beings.

Cereals are the energy source par excellence: more than half the calorie requirements of humans must be supplied by cereals and their derivatives.

The Asiatic-Oriental civilisation is based on the cultivation of rice, whereas in South America it is corn and in the Mediterranean and Europe it is wheat, but the reasons for this are due to local cultivations and are not linked to any particular nutritional requirements of the populations.
