What is Gluten Free?

A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes the protein gluten. Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye and derivatives of these grains including malt and brewer’s yeast. Gluten gradually damages the intestines of people with celiac disease, preventing the absorption of vitamins and minerals, and contributing to serious digestive health problems. Wheat as a subset of the gluten-free diet is one of the top 8 allergens including milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, and soya. Gluten is contained in many products, sometimes where you wouldn’t expect, so many products now carry either a gluten free logo or claim, to help consumers make informed choices.
