Coeliac disease is a serious autoimmune condition caused by a reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. And the only treatment available for people who suffer is to avoid all foods with these ingredients.

The number of people diagnosed as coeliacs is growing to one in 100, and, as such, the Government has stopped giving out gluten-free bread and flour on prescription, which has created a whole extra private market for such products.

Supermarkets now have whole aisles full of everything from ready meals to cakes, to cereals, and restaurants are starting to have gluten free options on the menu.

Coeliac UK, the largest independent charity for people living gluten free, will be holding its first ever gluten free food festival on Saturday 24th June at the AJ Bell Stadium, with free entry*

There will be over forty stalls and visitors will have the chance to sample and buy a whole range of gluten free food and drink from local and national producers, and see new products.

People will also be able to book a free face-to-face meeting with a registered dietitian, visit the Coeliac UK Hub, listen to specialist talks led by leading Gastroenterologist Professor David Sanders and watch a range of cookery demonstrations hosted by Coeliac UK's Home Economist. The day will also include a round up from Coeliac UK and their annual general meeting.

Special guest is TV presenter, Chris Bavin, who will be doing a cookery demonstration...

"My wife has coeliac disease" he says "And so I'm looking forward to meeting and chatting to people who are coming along on the day, and will no doubt  pick up ideas of new products and tips to take back home."

IMAGE OBSESSION AND CLADDING UNVEILED

Recently, Salford City Council has been obsessed by the image of the city, desperately trying to move away from the 'Dirty Old Town', to something like Milton Keynes on the Irwell.

Has this obsession with image and wrapping tower blocks in unsafe materials led, in line with other cities, to the current cladding catastrophe? Here the Salford Star documents what's been going on behind the fancy facades...
