Autism is a developmental disorder for which no cure currently exists. Gluten and/or casein free diet has been implemented to reduce autistic behaviour, in addition to special education, since early in the eighties. Over the last twelve years various studies on this dietary intervention have been published in addition to anecdotal, parental reports. The scientific studies include both groups of participants as well as single cases, and beneficial results are reported in all, but one study… 
Biochemical aspects in autism spectrum disorders: updating the opioid-excess theory and presenting new opportunities for biomedical intervention
TLDR
The aim of this paper is to review the accompanying evidence in support of the opioid-excess theory of autism and present new directions of intervention as a result of it.
Impact of Casein and Gluten Free Dietary Intervention on Selected Autistic Children
TLDR
The impact of dietary intervention made using dietary guide books found to be useful to reduce various behavior symptoms among the selected autistic children.
Gluten- and casein-free dietary intervention for autism spectrum conditions
TLDR
Evidence suggestive that a gluten-free or casein-free diet can ameliorate core and peripheral symptoms and improve developmental outcome in some cases of autism spectrum conditions is examined.
Gluten- and casein-free diets for autistic spectrum disorder.
TLDR
To determine the efficacy of gluten- and/or casein- free diets as an intervention to improve behaviour, cognitive and social functioning in individuals with autism, a small number of randomised controlled trials are needed.
The role of nutraceuticals in the management of autism.

TLDR
This review critically analyzes the roles of vitamins and cofactors, dietary modifications and gut abnormalities, probiotics and prebiotics, phytochemicals, and environmental factors in order to determine the state of evidence in nutraceutical-based autism management practices.
Gluten- and casein-free diets for autistic spectrum disorder.
TLDR
To determine the efficacy of gluten and/or casein free diets as an intervention to improve behaviour, cognitive and social functioning in individuals with autism, two small RCTs were identified and no meta-analysis was possible.
Nutritional management of (some) autism: a case for gluten- and casein-free diets?
  • P. Whiteley
  • Medicine, Psychology
    Proceedings of the Nutrition Society
  • 2014
TLDR
Several pertinent aspects onwards to an effect of food in some cases of autism including research on the pharmacological activity of food metabolites, immune response, issues with gut barrier function and some contribution from the gut microbiota represent promising areas in need of far greater research inspection.
Relationship of Dietary Intake to Gastrointestinal Symptoms in Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders
TLDR
There was a high rate of reported gastrointestinal symptoms, despite lack of medical causes, and intake was adequate for calories and carbohydrates and increased for protein, and the children did not exhibit excessive carbohydrate intake.
Altered amino acid excretion in children with autism
TLDR
It was concluded that the untreated autistic children had evidence of altered metabolic homeostasis.

Autistic syndromes and diet : a follow-up study
Abstract Dietary intervention was applied to 15 subjects with autistic syndromes, with pathological urine patterns, and increased levels of peptides found in their twenty‐four‐hour urine samples. The
Dietary Intervention for a Seven Year Old Girl with Autistic Behaviour.
TLDR
A seven year old girl with autistic behaviour who benefited from a diet without gluten and casein is described in this case report and her behaviour and skills were registered before diet, after one year and after two.
A Gluten-Free Diet as an Intervention for Autism and Associated Spectrum Disorders: Preliminary Findings
The opioid-excess hypothesis of autism suggests that autism is the consequence of the incomplete breakdown and excessive absorption of peptides with opioid activity (derived from foods which contain
Food allergy and infantile autism.
TLDR
The results lead us to hypothesise a relationship between food allergy and infantile autism as has already been suggested for other disturbances of the central nervous system.
A neurochemical theory of autism
Abstract The appreciation of the existence of a brain disorder as encapsulated in early childhood autism has only come to the fore in recent years. Possibly for this reason, there is no apparent

TLDR
A simple system of subgrouping based solely on a description of the type of social impairment will be used, which avoids the confusion inherent in trying to identify the named syndromes.
Autism and Schizophrenia: Intestinal Disorders
TLDR
The data provide support for the proposal that many patients with schizophrenia or autism suffer due to absorption of exorphins formed in the intestine from incomplete digestion of gluten and casein.
Endorphin activity in childhood psychosis. Spinal fluid levels in 24 cases.
TLDR
There was a trend toward a correlation between high fraction II levels and self-destructiveness and decreased pain sensibility in the psychotic children.
Abnormal intestinal permeability in children with autism
TLDR
It is speculated that an altered intestinal permeability could represent a possible mechanism for the increased passage through the gut mucosa of peptides derived from foods with subsequent behavioural abnormalities.
