At Purition, we are proud to have developed products that are delicious but also gluten free. So when we saw it was Coeliac awareness week, we wanted to find out more.
Did you know around 1% of the UK population has coeliac disease? And as only 24% are diagnosed, it means 500,000 people in the UK are living with the disease and don’t know!
But what is coeliac disease? Unlike many people believe, it is not an allergy. It is an autoimmune disease caused by the body reacting to gluten. Symptoms include digestive problems, tiredness, anaemia, hair loss and sometimes sudden weightloss. A small number of sufferers also develop a nasty rash (Dermatitis Herpetiformis).
The UK has seen a large increase in cases over recent decades, with one study indicating a 400% increase in the last 50 years. You are also more likely to have the disease if you have a family member who is coeliac (15%).
However, it is a treatable, although not curable, disease, and patients following a gluten-free diet can hugely improve their symptoms.
If you think you might have the symptoms associated with Coeliac Disease, it is important for you to get checked, before you give up gluten. To find out more visit:
And spread the word...
If you suffer from Coeliac disease and use Purition products as part of your gluten free diet, we’d also love to hear your story.

Purition is a real food alternative to meal replacements shakes and protein supplements.
Try our healthy wholefood shake instead of very low calorie meal replacement shakes for a healthy approach to weight loss. Made with the very best and natural whole food ingredients your grandmother would recognise. Purition is so much more than a natural protein powder too, our balanced blend provides a quick, delicious, gluten free, low carb breakfast smoothie or quick lunch when you don't have time to cook. Purition is also available made with 100% plant based proteins for our vegan and dairy free customers. High protein, low sugar, healthy omega fats and fibre from whole foods. Purition is not a meal replacement shake. A meal replacement shake is a supplement not food. Purition is food and therefore can not be classified as a meal replacement. Purition is not designed to replace meals. Purition is real food and therefore a meal.
