Diet is a major environmental factor influencing gut microbiota diversity and functionality, which might be relevant to subjects following dietary therapies. Celiac disease CD is an enteropathy caused by an aberrant immune response to cereal gluten proteins and the only therapy is the adherence to a gluten-free diet GFD. In this context, a preliminary study was conducted to establish whether the GFD in itself could modify the composition and immune properties of the gut microbiota. The trial included 10 healthy subjects Analysis of fecal microbiota and dietary intake indicated that numbers of healthy gut bacteria decreased, while numbers of unhealthy bacteria increased parallel to reductions in the intake of polysaccharides after following the GFD. Fecal samples of subjects under a GFD, which represent an altered microbiota, also exerted lower immune stimulatory effects on peripheral blood mononuclear cells than those of subjects on a regular gluten-containing diet. This addendum presents further discussion on the rationale behind these findings, limitations of the study and possible consequences of dietary counselling in the care process of celiac disease patients. In particular, intestinal bacteria constitute a constant challenge of antigens to their host that modulate mucosal immunity and the primary line of defence against antigens acquired orally. Celiac disease appeared as a result of dietary changes associated with the development of the agriculture and cereals cultivation.

Gluten describes a set of proteins found in wheat and wheat-based products. Although many people can process this nutrient with no problems, the digestive tract of some individuals is unable to tolerate gluten, leading to unpleasant symptoms. Because these wheat proteins are common in so many foods, avoiding them can be a challenge. However, as more food processors become aware of gluten intolerance, those experiencing the dietary disorder have a greater number of options available for coping with it. Glutenin and gliadin, which collectively make up gluten, account for most of the protein in wheat. Other grains, including barley, rye, spelt and possibly oats, also contain gluten-like proteins. Gluten proteins, particularly those in wheat, exhibit a flexible and elastic nature that provides the structure to yeast-enriched baked goods. As the yeast in these products release gas, the network of glutenin and gliadin fibrils traps the gas and allows the bread or rolls, for example, to rise.
