What is Gluten?Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barely and rye. Most breads and cereals contain these products.Gluten is used as a stabilizing agent In which sauces like gravy and ketchup are thickened with gluten.Found in many processed foodsCorn, rice, buckwheat, oats and soybeans do not contain gluten and are good substitutions.BasisGluten causes inflammation in the small intestine which causes severe pain.This diet was developed for people who have Celiac DiseaseIf left untreated this can affect the absorption of the intestinal tract and lead to future problems obtaining nutrients.

Problems with industry A problem that is occurring with this fad diet is producers are trying to satisfy all customersIn doing so they are trying to come up with as many gluten-free products as possibleThe only problem is that in order to take this gluten out something has to be added in (i.e. fat) to make the product better. To avoid over consumption to fat a person on the gluten free diet should go about making their foods from fresh ingredients and avoid such products. Problems with nutrientsPeople on this diet may have trouble with getting the right nutrientsSince they have to avoid pretty much all enriched grains they tend to lose out on nutrients such as iron, fiber, calcium, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and folate
