A BUSINESSWOMAN from Sheffield who founded her own gluten-free brand after being diagnosed with coeliac disease attended a parliamentary reception at the House of Commons designed to open people’s eyes to the condition.

Emma Killilea, who created Delicious Alchemy after being diagnosed with the auto-immune disease in 2005, was joined by TV chef Phil Vickery and Dr Chris Steele MBE, health ambassador for the Coeliac UK charity.

The event was organised to raise the profile of the charity and the work it does with coeliac disease sufferers across the country.

“As a sufferer of coeliac disease myself, I am committed to raising its profile and supporting fellow sufferers to cope with the symptoms and lead normal lives.

She added: “This is the very reason I founded Delicious Alchemy.

“Since I was diagnosed in 2005, there are many more foods available that are gluten-free but when you first find out you have the disease it can be extremely daunting.”
