Does FODZYME target gluten? Can FODZYME help those with celiac disease or other gluten-related conditions?Updated 2 months ago
FODZYME targets the FODMAPs fructan, GOS and lactose; not the protein gluten, which is found in wheat, barley and rye. If using FODZYME, those with celiac disease should remain on a strict gluten-free diet (GFD) and those with other gluten-related conditions will want to limit gluten intake as tolerated.
That said, we know secondary carbohydrate malabsorption can be present in celiac disease before transition to a GFD or in cases of poor adherence to the GFD. If secondary lactose intolerance may be contributing to gastrointestinal symptoms while the villi heal, FODZYME can be helpful to support FODMAP tolerance.
FODZYME is gluten-free.
