IS GLUTEN A NO-NO FOR YOU?
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and triticale, a combination of wheat and rye. It helps foods such as cereal, bread, and pasta, to hold their shape. It is also found in some cosmetic products, such as lip balm, and in the glue on the back of stamps and envelopes.
Are You Gluten Intolerant?
In people with celiac disease, consuming just one crouton can cause health problems, as they cannot digest gluten at all. Following a diet that includes gluten can lead to severe illness. Going gluten-free can save the life of a person with celiac disease.
And then there is a category of people described as "gluten-sensitive." Sometimes, people experience the symptoms which include bloating, diarrhea or abdominal pain. One cause is a wheat allergy, a disorder that can be diagnosed by skin testing. But for many, the diagnosis remains uncertain. Some have begun calling this "non-celiac gluten hypersensitivity," a poorly defined condition about which we have much to learn.
Avoiding gluten makes sense for people with celiac disease, wheat allergy or those who feel unwell when they consume gluten. Quite simply put, gluten can be harmful to people who are intolerant. The benefits of a gluten-free diet can be a lower level of cholesterol, improved energy levels, elimination of unhealthy, and processed foods from your diet and much more. Gluten is found mainly in wheat and starch-rich commodities. Here’s a list of things which you should include in your gluten-free diet-
* Fruits and vegetables
* Fresh eggs
* Fresh Meats
* Fish and poultry
* Unprocessed beans
* Seeds and nuts
* White rice
