this was discussed sometime in the last year or so. it's so hard to find past posts in Spark I am including quotes from responses on the Celiac listserve:
" 100% of those who responded question if it would work. One person did try the enzyme after eating food containing gluten and got sick.
One person commented that Dr. Fasano is working on such a project and thought it might be ready in 4-5 years.
The Executive Director of the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center commented that " ........the pill referenced here has absolutely no merit."
Another comment pointed out that no test results or any reference material is included in the Web Site dealing with this enzyme.. "
and from another post:
"Recently a lady with celiac disease asked Cynthia Kupper of the Gluten Intolerance Group and myself about a product called GlutenEase
Below is Cynthia's response:
This product is not advertised for persons with celiac disease but for persons with gluten intolerance that is not celiac disease. It will not
stop the damage that is happening in the GI tract for persons with celiac disease.
