In addition to the studies listed in my post on gluten, here’s some additional studies.
2015: Sensitivity to wheat, gluten and FODMAPs in IBS: facts or fiction?
2014: Fibromyalgia and non-celiac gluten sensitivity: a description with remission of fibromyalgia.
2014: An Italian prospective multicenter survey on patients suspected of having non-celiac gluten sensitivity
2014: Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity: Literature Review
2014: [Clinical features suggesting autism spectrum disorder as a manifestation of non-celiac gluten sensitivity].
2014: Randomised clinical trial: gluten may cause depression in subjects with non-coeliac gluten sensitivity – an exploratory clinical study.
2013: A Controlled Trial of Gluten-Free Diet in Patients With Irritable Bowel Syndrome-Diarrhea: Effects on Bowel Frequency and Intestinal Function
2013:No Effects of Gluten in Patients With Self-Reported Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity After Dietary Reduction of Fermentable, Poorly Absorbed, Short-Chain Carbohydrates
– The authors omitted 60% of the potential participants from the study because they carried the celiac genes, DQ2 or DQ8 gene. Roughly 35-40% of NCGS sufferers carry one or two of these genes as well.
– The authors omitted anyone with increased inflammation markers in their intestines (Marsh 1). Previous studies have demonstrated that ‘a substantial number of NCGS patients (about 40%) will demonstrate a Marsh 1 level of inflammation’.
– This study was sponsered by George Weston Foods. The most well known of GWF business divisions, the Baking division is located in Australia and New Zealand and is one of the biggest supplier of bread. Brands include Tip Top, Burgen & Noble Rise. GWF are responsible for much of the bread consumed in New Zealand.
2014: Detection of Glyphosate Residues in Animals and Humans
2013: Glyphosate, pathways to modern diseases II: Celiac sprue and gluten intolerance
Fish exposed to glyphosate develop digestive problems that are reminiscent of celiac disease. Celiac disease is associated with imbalances in gut bacteria that can be fully explained by the known effects of glyphosate on gut bacteria.
2013: Non-Celiac Gluten sensitivity: the new frontier of gluten related disorders.
Recent studies raised the possibility that, beside gluten, wheat amylase-trypsin inhibitors and low-fermentable, poorly-absorbed, short-chain carbohydrates can contribute to symptoms (at least those related to IBS) experienced by NCGS patients.
2012: Non-celiac wheat sensitivity diagnosed by double-blind placebo-controlled challenge: exploring a new clinical entity.
We also suggest the existence of two distinct populations of subjects with WS: one with characteristics more similar to CD and the other with characteristics pointing to food allergy.
2011: Occurrence of nonceliac gluten sensitivity in patients with allergic disease.

‘This literal ‘textbook’ explanation of basic immunological mechanisms should help clarify why dismissing gluten as a fad is, actually quite brazen or down right silly.’
