I’ve been told to avoid gluten but I love pizza… what do I do?
“Gluten-free” has become a trendy phrase that slips under the category of “healthy eating” in most people’s minds, but what does it really mean?
What is Gluten?
Gluten is a mixture of two proteins found in cereal grains like wheat (where most of it is found in Western diet), barley, rye, triticale (a cross between wheat and rye), wheatberries, durum, emmer, semolina, spelt, farina, farro, graham, KAMUT® khorasan wheat and einkorn.
It gives doughs elasticity and structure and can be found in baked goods, breads, beer, soy sauce , and a lot of unexpected places, too. Read more about it…
Should I Avoid Gluten?
Unless you have celiac disease or an allergy or intolerance to gluten, there’s no reason to avoid it. Though people claim that they feel better without it, there are good reasons to explain aside from reducing gluten in the diet.
