Coeliac Awareness Week

Mon, 8 May 2017

Coeliac Awareness Week

One in one hundred people in Ireland have coeliac disease, and worryingly many suffer the uncomfortable symptoms without getting a proper diagonosis through a simple blood test.

Following a gluten-free diet is the only treatment for the life-long condition which has no cure.

As part of Coeliac Awareness Week, AM hosts Sinead and Mark were joined by Dietician Richelle Flanagan and Aidan Keane who has changed his lifestyle since being diagnosed with coeliac disease last year.

Watch their interview below:

Irish chef and food writer Jordan Bourke's new book 'Healthy Baking' does what it says on the tin. With over 100 recipes, Jordan wants to encourage people to get into baking and fermenting!

As it's Coeliac Awareness Week, this morning Jordan was in the kitchen making his gluten-free Chocolate cake.

Watch how he made it below:
