The modality of the event is Virtual

In recent years, for both gluten and fructose, the amount of information provided in the media has contributed to a growing group of people changing their eating habits without having the proper guidance from a professional. Regarding gluten, some health problems related to its intake, such as celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity and wheat allergy have been overestimated, leading healthy people to prefer a gluten-free diet as a healthier option . On the other hand, the consumption of fructose has increased, mainly in the form of corn syrup, which is used in a wide variety of processed foods. Research has associated high fructose consumption with the incidence and prevalence of chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, dyslipidemias, and metabolic syndrome, among others. At present there is information inviting to reduce the consumption of fruits, which has led more and more people to question whether or not fruits should continue to be part of the healthy diet. These are two topics on which much speculation has been made and around which myths have been generated, which this course will deal with, updating and discussing evidence-based, supported by scientific studies. In this way, it begins with the chemical and metabolic bases of gluten and fructose, to go on to understand the related pathologies and their epidemiology. It ends with the nutritional approach and a precise discussion about its consumption -or not in healthy populations.

Nutritionists, health professionals and the like, general population (SD).
