By now, we've all heard about the latest nutritional trend of "going gluten-free" but many of us are still somewhat unsure of what this exactly means and what the benefits are of following a diet free of gluten; or even what gluten itself actually is. Having full information can allow you to make an educated choice as to whether ridding your diet of gluten is something you'd like to pursue.
Gluten is simply the protein composition of gliadin and glutenin that is found in the endosperm of cereal grains like wheat and barley that gives dough its elastic-like texture. Though some people are somewhat sensitive to gluten, true gluten intolerance is experienced by those with celiac, which only affects 1 out of 100 people in the United States.
Those with celiac disease can experience serious health issues over time with the consumption of gluten-heavy foods like processed foods and baked goods. Conditions like diabetes, intestinal cancers and arthritis all have been experienced by those with celiac disease. The avoidance of all foods containing gluten is recommended for those suffering from celiac.
Others that are simply "gluten sensitive" may experience digestive issues such as abdominal pain, bloating, constipation and Irritable bowel syndrome.
