Have your gluten free cake and eat it too
Are you one of the thousands of Western Australians who can't tolerate gluten? Perhaps you are newly diagnosed with having a gluten intolerance or coeliac disease and are still getting used to the idea of this new way of eating. Whatever your situation, it's a big adjustment, but the Gluten Free Food & Healthy Living Expo is headed to Perth to help.

Gluten intolerance and coeliac disease has become commonplace in modern life, with one in 70 people now thought to have coeliac disease, in which the immune system reacts badly to gluten, although many of these people do go undiagnosed. The gluten free food industry has become an empire, with restaurants offering gluten free alternatives, and there's even gluten free beer and wine. Hurray!

The expo will take place at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday, 11th and Sunday, 12th March 2017. It will aim to educate visitors about the importance of diagnosis and how to manage the disease through diet. Visitors will have the opportunity to try a range of gluten free foods, including the beer and wine (yesss!) with over 60 companies on show over the weekend.

There will also be around 20 cooking demonstrations taking place, along with 10 different seminars on topics such as 'Eating For Your DNA' and 'The Positive, Social Coeliac.' Visitors will also be able to take advantage of expo special offers and will hopefully leave the expo with a better understanding of this incurable yet treatable disease. If you want to bring the kids along, the expo will even have a range of kids activities on offer.
