What is gluten?


So, the word that is buzzing so thick and fast today around the world is the general term for a group of proteins found in grains, such as barley, wheat, and rye. Gluten considerable work as a glue that holds the grain together and assists it to keep its shape.


It can generally be found in the dough, pasta, bread, cereals, baked goods and so on. Moreover, it may also be found in unsuspecting stuff like soy sauce, cross-contaminated oats, deli meats, condiments, salad dressings, alcohol, candy, fried foods, cheese, supplements, medications, cosmetics, etc.


Why does gluten consider part of the problem despite nutritional facts?


As a matter of fact, grains like wheat, barley, rye containing gluten are not the same one that grand-parents or great grand-parent used to consume. Over a period of time, the system and technique of growing these crops have drastically changed.

Should everyone choose gluten-free recipes and foods?


It is almost mandatory for people having celiac disease to opt for a Vegan recipe that is gluten-free. They can also use vegan sweets to satiate their hunger for chocolate, candy, etc. Some experts though consider that it is not essential for everyone to go gluten-free because it is a fad-diet. However, some white flour and wheat flour are not good for health. Even in some gluten-free flours, you have to be careful because they contain other preservatives that are not healthy for everyone. Hence using gluten-free recipes or sweets should be evaluated according to the individual requirement.
