One in ten Australians have non-coeliac wheat intolerance and one in 70 have coeliac disease. If you have a patient in either basket, how can you help them meet their total fibre and prebiotic needs when so many gluten-containing wholegrains are off the menu? Tune into this podcast with Advanced APD and gluten-free nutrition guru Dr Kim Faulkner-Hogg to learn the answer! Kim touches on the most common misconceptions about gluten free diets and provides practical tips for fibre-filled, prebiotic-powered gluten free meals and snacks.
Dr Kim Faulkner-Hogg (BSc, Grad Dip Nutr & Diet, Adv APD, PhD (USYD)) is an Advanced Accredited Practising Dietitian with more than 20 years experience with coeliac disease and food intolerances. Kim completed her PhD in Coeliac disease and the gluten minutia of a gluten free diet in 2004. She was part of the original working party defining the low gluten and gluten free food standards and was a consultant dietitian to Coeliac Australia for a number of years. An important focus for Kim is educating people about coeliac disease, intolerances, gluten and the gluten free diet and she takes opportunities to address dietitians, other health professionals, the food industry and the public on this topic.
