Celiac Peptide Database

Celiac Peptide Database

Consistent with guidance published by European Food Safety Authority (Naegeli et al., 2017¹), CropLife International members have created the linked document which describes the process used to identify and add new peptides to a list of peptides implicated in celiac disease published by Sollid et al., 2020². The newly added peptides were identified through a comprehensive targeted literature search that identified potentially relevant publications.  Each publication was reviewed to determine if it contained peptides of interest, and if so, whether those peptides conformed to criteria described in Sollid et al., 2012³.

  • A detailed description of the publication search and review process can be found here
  • The following publications were reviewed.
  • A complete selection of 2021 celiac peptides (updated from the 2020 celiac peptide table as described), including transamidations can be found here.
  • A complete selection of 2020 celiac peptides (from Sollid et al., 2020), including transamidations can be found here.
