A sacrament not suitable for celiacs: the Church forbids communion with gluten-free wafers
It is a circular sent to the bishops that exhorts to monitor the quality of the bread destined to the Eucharist. The option for those suffering from the disease is to take communion with wine.

The Catholic Church does not allow communion with wafers that do not contain gluten. This was reminded this weekend by the Vatican in a circular sent to the bishops by order of the Pope Francisco. Although not new, this last document exhorts "to watch over the quality of the bread and wine destined for the Eucharist and, therefore, those who prepare them" and suggests a series of practical indications. "wafers that do not contain gluten are not valid for the Eucharist," says the letter sent by the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. Google Translate
