What is gluten?

Gluten is the elastic protein that is naturally found in grains like wheat, spelt, rye, and barley. Gluten is what makes grain particles stick together to make breads, pastas, cakes and cookies.

Most people tolerate gluten just fine.However, for people with certain health conditions like celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, gluten can cause problems for them.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that makes the body attack gluten in the digestive system. This can cause severe digestive disorders and other health problems. While Gluten sensitivity is when people react negatively to gluten but they do not have celiac disease.

The most common sources of gluten in the diet are:

  • Wheat
  • Spelt
  • Rye
  • Barley
  • Bread
  • Pasta
  • Cereals
  • Beer
  • Baked goods like cakes, cookies, and pastries

There are also some grains that are naturally gluten-free like corn, rice, quinoa, and flax to name a a few.
