Gluten in Celiac Disease—More or Less?

Inna Spector Cohen, Andrew S. Day, and Ron Shaoul


To date, the only known effective treatment for celiac disease is a strict gluten-free diet for life. We reviewed the literature to evaluate the upper limit for gluten content in food, which would be safe for patients with celiac disease. Patients with celiac disease should limit their daily gluten intake to no more than 10–50 mg. Most health authorities define gluten-free products as containing less than 20 parts per million gluten.
