Gludairyan: “A person who avoids consuming gluten and dairy”.
What is gluten?
Gluten is “a mixture of two proteins present in cereal grains, especially wheat, which is responsible for the elastic texture of dough”. It is added to many things including bread, cakes, pasta, sauces, cereal, beer and many more.
What is dairy?
Dairy is a product containing or made from animal milk. It is also added to cheese, sauces, yoghurts, chocolate, butter, snacks and many more.
I have been following a gluten and dairy free diet now for around 6 years due to allergies. In that time awareness for these allergies has risen drastically. Yet there is still no word to describe someone who avoids consuming both gluten and dairy. You have words such as vegetarian, vegan, flexitarian, pescatarian and many more.
I wanted to come up with the word Gludairyan so that life becomes much easier. Raising awareness for the word Gludairyan would mean that you can easily describe the food you avoid consuming. This will make life much easier when ordering food in a restaurant for example.
After thinking of the word that describes avoiding gluten and dairy the first spelling that came to mind was gludairian, due to how the other words such as vegetarian and pescatarian are spelt. I finally decided that I wanted to make the word more understandable straight away with keeping the “Y” in dairy.
Spread the word:
I know many people are going to instantly love the word Gludiaryan and that there is finally a word that can describe exactly the lifestyle you follow. The way to raise awareness is to literally spread the word (pun intended). Here are a few tips:
- Start using it in hashtags #gludairyan when you share food/products that are gluten and dairy free.
- Share my Instagram, Facebook or Twitter posts which shows the word and meaning.
- Start sharing the word Gludairyan with family and friends who also avoid consuming these products.
- Start using it in restaurants, when they say “what is Gludairyan” you explain the meaning.
