The sights, sounds, ideas and – most importantly – the delicious tastes of Coeliac Queensland’s annual Gluten Free Food Expo will return to Brisbane in May. This is the largest gathering of Gluten Free Food Producers, Cooking Demonstrations, Information Sessions and Food Samples in Brisbane, all gathered together under the one roof!

The only event of its kind in Queensland, the Gluten Free Food Expo is a two-day gathering of more than 50 of the nation’s favourite gluten-free food producers as well as keynote medical speakers, celebrity MasterChef cooking demonstrations and more, all in support of people with coeliac disease, those living with gluten intolerance or those who choose a gluten-free lifestyle.

Among the Expo highlights will be presentations by:
- Dr Jason Tye-Din: a coeliac specialist and researcher. Jason completed his medical degree at Melbourne University in 1995 and undertook clinical training at the Royal Melbourne Hospital specialising in gastroenterology. He completed a PhD at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute studying the immune basis for why gluten is toxic and he now heads a coeliac research lab there. He chairs the Medical Advisory Committee of Coeliac Australia and is regularly involved in coeliac awareness and medical professional education programs.
- Mr Tom McLeod: appointed the National President of Coeliac Australia in July 2014. He was diagnosed with coeliac disease in 2003. Tom is the founding partner of a boutique risk and governance consulting firm, McLeod Governance. He was previously the Global Head of Internal Audit for Rio Tinto.
- Dr Sue Shepherd: an award-winning advanced accredited practising dietitian, nutritionist, author and coeliac, Sue owns and operates Shepherd Works – a private dietetic practice in Victoria specialising in gastrointestinal nutritional conditions like coeliac disease and IBS.
- Dr John Croese: a gastroenterologist who recently successfully completed clinical trials assessing the therapeutic benefit of hookworms in coeliac and other inflammatory diseases. People with coeliac disease were inoculated with hookworms and challenged with gluten
- The Coles MasterChef contestants who will deliver a variety of different gluten-free cooking demonstrations, live throughout the two-day event.

The Gluten Free Food Expo is presented by Coeliac Queensland, a not-for-profit organisation established in 1974 to assist and support people who are diagnosed as requiring a gluten free diet for life.
