Is Gluten Free For You?

Is Gluten Free For You?

You’ve most likely heard about gluten-free food products and recipes. If you’ve been diagnosed with celiac disease, you’re already facing the challenges of eating a diet free of wheat, rye and barley products.

What is gluten?  It’s a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat, barley and rye. It gives elasticity to bread doughs and provides the chewy texture we love in breads. It is found in nearly all packaged food products from cookies, to crackers to pretzels and it’s in nearly all baked goods.

 

The problem with gluten is that many believe it is associated with a whole laundry list of health-related problems because it is suspected of causing inflammation. It is linked with the pain of arthritis, sinus problems, asthma, fibromyalgia and even ADD. How to find the right diet for you?
