Why gluten free is good
September 4, 2016
Living a gluten free diet means removing foods such as cereals, certain grains, and wheat based products.
Gluten is a protein that is found in these foods . One of the main purposes of gluten is to keep the elasticity intact during the fermentation phase of food production. Gluten makes foods “chewy,” and prevents it from having a sticky, doughy-like texture.
With recent increases in people being diagnosed with coeliac disease and gluten sensitivity, the idea of a gluten-free diet has been recently researched by physicians from all sides of the nutritional spectrum, including weight loss specialists, bariatric physicians, and dietitians.
If you have a gluten intolerance a gluten-free diet can have a variety of health benefits, such as improving cholesterol levels, promoting digestive health, and increasing energy levels.
