Q: I have Coeliac disease and have to avoid gluten in my diet. Is there a supplement I can take to help me dine out safely when I’m not sure about the gluten content in the food?
A: Sometimes even a trace of gluten in a sauce can make an otherwise ‘safe’ gluten-free dish a cause for discomfort. Gluten Defense (by Enzymatic Therapy) contains a specific enzyme called DPP-IV for digesting gluten and casein. It also contains amylase, lipase, phytase, lactase, cellulase and sucrase making it a useful overall digestive aid. You can take 2 capsules with every meal or only when you eat meals in which the gluten content is questionable such as when you eat at a friend’s place or a restaurant.
