Surfer and cookbook author Finn Ní Fhaoláin helped launch Ireland's Coeliac Awareness Week. Last year, the gluten free food market was worth about €66m, a jump of 36pc. Many people are paying more for gluten free products despite not suffering coeliac disease. As a result, the Coeliac Society of Ireland has developed a free, online self-assessment tool.

When members of the public visit www.isitcoeliacdisease.ie or via the coeliac.ie

website, they will be asked a number of questions relating to their current health. If they match to some of those of coeliac disease, they will be encouraged to seek a medical diagnosis. Coeliac Awareness Week takes place nationwide between May 8 and 15 and is supported by SuperValu.
