Adverse reactions are common to many food additives...these are the scourges that cause behavioural changes in children, exacerbating ADHD and triggering asthma.

In either instance, symptoms can range from localised to systemic and may easily be misdiagnosed as seemingly unrelated to their underlying cause: gluten intolerance.
A recent review on intestinal microbiota and probiotics in coeliac disease (CD) revealed that research into CD and the effect of gluten on the intestinal-immune health in adults has only been studied since 2012; prior to that children were the cohort subjects.
Probiotics modulate the immune response in children suffering from coeliac disease by reducing the pro- inflammatory cytokines according to a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.
