    Gluten Free Diet

    January 4, 2014

    So What is Gluten?

    According to Wikipedia: “Gluten (from Latin gluten, “glue”) is a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grain species, including barley and rye. Gluten gives elasticity to dough, helping it rise and keep its shape and often gives the final product a chewy texture. Gluten is used in cosmetics, hair products, and other dermatological preparations.”

    That last part sounds yummy! NOT – cosmetics, hair products and other dermatological preparations – you want me to eat What?

    large.gluten.foodsIf you are gluten challenged with gluten digestion trouble, you know how hard it is to find some of your favorites foods like wheat free pizza and wheat free desserts or gluten free donuts! If you do a search on the internet for “wheat free foods” you will find over seven million different websites that include that search term.

    Remember though Wheat Free isn’t enough, because it is in all grains so it is better to search for Gluten Free.  Why is it that it appears that all of a sudden the American public has become gluten intolerant? You see it often today within our families. One of the biggest reasons is in the mean of the word gluten – glue, that and its ability to make breads rise, giving it a chewy texture. Because of this food processors have found it cheaper to add gluten to many products that you would never think would have gluten (like packaged meats). It provides bigger profits!

    One and a half million results are displayed if you search for “gluten free restaurants”. Fortunately some restaurants have the thing many miss most about not being able to digest wheat and gluten…PIZZA!  Some health food stores have little dining areas where they cook anything from the store up for you and either serve it to you or package it already cooked “to go”. And thankfully now more and more regular grocery stores, organic food stores and eateries supply gluten free foods.

    There are also many gluten free pizza mix products that you can buy in health food stores or some large supermarkets that have health food sections. In some of these stores you can buy frozen wheat free pizza crusts, take them home and add your favorite toppings along with dairy free cheese and eat till your hearts content.
