What is a gluten-free diet?
A gluten-free diet is a food regimen that avoids glutens like wheat, rye, and barley. While some people have minor sensitivities to gluten, other conditions such as Celiac Disease can damage the intestines. That is why it is important that there be healthy and delicious options for people on this specific diet.
What are some gluten-free foods?
Gluten-free food must not have wheat, rye or barley, so traditional breads are out of the picture. That’s a major bummer for a lot of people because bread and other wheat products, like pasta, are super yummy. Thankfully, commonplace meals typically made with gluten can also be made using various substitutes, such as corn or quinoa. Now virtually anything can be made gluten-free, from crackers to cake.
