About Coeliac Society of Australia Inc.
The Coeliac Society (CS) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide information and support to those diagnosed with celiac disease, their families and caregivers. Celiac disease is a digestive disorder characterized by intolerance to dietary gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. Consumption of gluten leads to abnormal changes of the mucous membrane (mucosa) of the small intestine, impairing its ability to properly absorb fats and additional nutrients during digestion (intestinal malabsorption).
