In light of Coeliac Awareness Week this week (13th March to the 20th March), we thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to make it known that all of our Nut Butters at 99th Monkey are Coeliac Friendly!
It is estimated that 1 in 70 Australian suffer from Coeliac disease. And 4 out of 5 remain undiagnosed.
Coeliac disease remains one of the most under-diagnosed condition in Australia. Therefore public recognition is important to make people aware of the potential reactions to gluten and what to look out for.
Thankfully it’s becoming easier to live with this condition due to the alternative food options increasing as time goes on.
Coeliac disease is a condition that causes the body to have an immune response to gluten, the protein found in wheat, barley and rye.
The treatment for coeliac disease is to follow a gluten free diet and strictly remove gluten from the diet entirely.
Symptoms of Coeliac Disease
- persistent gastrointestinal symptoms (diarrhoea, constipation, nausea, vomiting, cramping, bloating, abdominal pain
- prolonged fatigue, weakness and lethargy
- iron deficiency, anaemia and other vitamin and mineral deficiencies
- unexplained weight loss
- sever or recurrent mouth ulcers
- skin rashes
Here at 99th Monkey, you as a coeliac can STILL ENJOY our nut butters without worry! All of our nut butters are gluten free and vegan friendly. We use only natural, raw ingredients and do not add any preservatives, stabilises, sugars or oils.
You can purchase our nut butters at Coles Supermarkets, some independent stores and online via our website!
