Celiacs seek help in Castilla y Leone. Your basket accounts for 600,000 coins more per year

Celiacs of Castilla y Leon demand help from the Junta as well as from the town halls and councils to increase the price in the basic shopping basket due to the increase in the number of people with celiac disease, due to the property. the gluttony of free food which they consume, at an annual cost of 600 coins higher than that received by a person who is not celiac.

This calculation, carried out by the Celiacs Association of Castilla y Leon (Acecale), although common to the entire State, is the amount of support per individual with celiac disease that they claim from regional and local administrations, from what they already are. other town halls, councils and even autonomous communities in that area that they welcome.

Among them, and in the opinions collected by Ical, the President of Acecale, Patricia García Egido, points to the councils of the Basque region or Junta de Castilla-La Mancha, recently used after the national demonstration called in Madrid to demand this help. “But in our regional administration we are still waiting for a meeting with the Family Department to explain the problem, they are looking for solutions and asking not only for financial help, but others to improve the life and health of the celiac group,” says García Egido. .

Some of these projects include carrying out an epidemiological survey with people sensitive to gluten, wheat intolerance and celiac citizens themselves, a register of food packages or large products that are offered gluten-free, but those that “We do not know the. things “.

However, the main demand in the future meeting with the Ministry of Family and Equal Opportunities, for which they have not yet received a date, relates to these financial supports so that “the people of Ireland can buy their basic food”. In addition, and, as García Egido explains, they are not accepted by Acecale for the help of the union with the degree, because it is “the main work to be covered and guaranteed”.

“It is not a reason to cover the costs, but to cover the higher growth in the basket of those who have celiac disease,” says García Egido, who needs to be helped “to support the impact of the difference between the appetite of the free diet. and normal in basic products”, which acecale figures in 600 coins on average a year, 50 per month.

Application for reduced VAT

This supply is mainly due to the shortage of certain crops, which are used to make fruits for the people of Celiac, such as corn, which usually comes “from the Ukraine”, because of the war due to the invasion of Russia and was cut off. in the supply “moved a greater increase” in the prices of “all the derived crops” reports Ical.

However, the increase in the basic basket for people with celiac disease is also due to other reasons, such as the lack of application of super-reduced VAT on special breads and flours for consumption by people who cannot eat gluten. For this reason, from Acecale, this application states that “many of our products, due to the nature of their nutritional contribution, contain more than one cereal and are not considered basic bread”, which implies a 21 percent LAKE. to 4.5 percent is requested by the Celiac Association of Castilla y Leon.

And all these factors make families with celiac disease “not necessarily at risk of social exclusion” having problems completing their basic shopping basket, “more depending on the gluttony free diet is our medicine”; The president of Acecale, Maria Patricia García Egido told Ical.

“What many families do is less bread or other types of special products such as baked goods or pasta”, he points out, also pointing out the production at home, although “if it was an option before, it has risen in recent months. The price of light is complex”. To fight all these problems , and until the requested help arrives, from Acecale these consumers will receive “guidance to follow the diet in the most efficient and economical way”, which, however, “is not so easy, because the elements are fundamental. incorporating it into the diet and the sacrifice contributes to the body’s essential intake.

Collaboration with the Ministry of Health

But if the request for help continues while waiting for the requested meeting with the Ministry of Family and Equal Opportunities, from Acecale they highlight the common work that they have been developing for years with the Ministry of Health, where they “give training to everyone”. health professionals every two years”, in order to “know the progress of the diagnosis and treatment of the disease”, as well as with the inspectors for the control of the health boards produced, the job they demand to be done “at. nations”.

Another service that Acecale and Sacyl carry out jointly is the “integration and organization of the life of the celiac people”, so that they can participate in administrative events from which they are currently “excluded”, such as fairs or gastronomic events. . And, according to Education, García Egido highlighted the reason for the integration of celiac children in school, through “awareness” projects, because although “today it is known more and more about celiac disease, it is a fact that we are outside of many activities that take place in society.
