What is gluten?
Today there are so many products that say “Gluten Free” and its become the new health
craze. So what is gluten?
Gluten is made up from two different proteins gliadin and gluten that are found in wheat, rye, barley and triticale. Gluten holds food together almost like a glue like substance.
For people with celiac disease it is SUPER important for them to stay the heck away from gluten.
People that are gluten intolerant produce an abnormal response when breaking down gluten that damages their intestines making it difficult for them to absorb vital nutrients.
The most common form of gluten intolerance is celiac disease which affects 1 in every 141 people in the US according to the National instituues of Health.
It is best to avoid these foods ingredients that contain gluten, including bread, beer, french fries, pasta, salad dressing, soy sauce and even some soups unless it is marked as “gluten-free”.
