Gluten-Free Festigel: For the first time in a festigel that opened last night (evening), gluten-free food suitable for celiac patients will be offered. A range of products are priced at a fair price: sweet crepe and a hot dog bun, all gluten free.
The Gluten Free Buffet initiative is initiated by the Tel Aviv Expo in collaboration with Celiac Association in Israel and the Expo Tel Aviv franchise, the Net Daily, as part of the evaluations for the festigel performances and following a need identified during the Eurovision events held at the complex.
"The Celiacs have to deal time and time again, event after event, with the disappointment that they cannot enjoy the abundance of treats enjoyed by other children at places of entertainment. Therefore, one of our tasks is to create equality by raising awareness of celiac disease and accessing gluten-free products even at places of entertainment. "We hope that more entertainment venues will follow the Tel Aviv Expo and that we will continue to bring good news to the celiac community in Israel," says Shi Sela, chair of the Celiac Association in Israel.

Establishing a dedicated celiac buffet is good for us. We hope that in a line like this, it will quickly become the norm throughout the country. "
Celiac is a hereditary autoimmune bowel disease that results from gluten sensitivity, a protein found in some grains, such as wheat.
Gluten exposure causes inflammation of the small intestine, a condition that prevents the body from absorbing important substances from various foods. If the problem is not diagnosed, it can cause various symptoms and complications.
It is estimated that 3% -1% of the population suffer from celiac disease. It is assumed that many celiac patients do not suffer from the symptoms of the disease and are therefore undiagnosed
