What is gluten?
Gluten is the general name for storage proteins found in wheat, rye, barley, and oats. From a food science stand-point, gluten is responsible for combining with water to produce an elastic and porous web that holds the food together. This is why many gluten-free breads or baked goods fall apart and break easily – the elasticity is missing.
Why do people follow a gluten-free diet?
A gluten-free diet is recommended in the treatment of celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Celiac disease is a genetic disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients if diagnosed individuals come in contact with gluten. The reactions that those with Celiac disease or gluten intolerance suffer after coming in contact with gluten vary in severity, but are always uncomfortable and painful. A strict gluten-free diet is the only cure for Celiac disease. The gluten-free diet must eliminate all Wheat, Barley and Rye gluten sources.
