Why Eat Gluten Free?

Gluten is a mixture of two proteins present in breads, pastas, and other foods containing wheat. While not named as "Celiac's Disease" until this century, the first case of gluten intolerance was actually documented over two thousand years ago. Among the common symptoms: skin irritation, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, constipation, headaches, joint pain and chronic fatigue. Increasingly larger audiences of people are experiencing relief from these symptoms by reducing or eliminating gluten containing products from their diets.

Many of us, having grown up being able to eat whatever we want, end up developing symptoms later in life. Today it's estimated that 1 in 140 people have some level of gluten intolerance (CDC NHANES Survey) If you are one of those people who has either been diagnosed with Celiac's Disease, or you have reason to believe you may have a gluten allergy, you are in good company. Thankfully, many food companies and most restaurants now  offer a variety of gluten free options.
