What is a gluten-free diet?
Gluten is a mixture of wheat, barley, oats, and rye proteins. This gluten-rich diet may lead to gastrointestinal symptoms and other systemic disorders for some people who suffer from gluten ataxia, wheat allergy, celiac disease, or non-celiac gluten sensitivity. In the conditions mentioned above, the body treats gluten as a foreign body and reacts in an unwanted way leading to bloating, diarrhea or constipation, sharp shooting stomach pain, upset stomach, weight loss, and skin rashes. Apart from all this, fatigue and anemia (less hemoglobin in blood) are also commonly seen, leading to depression and anxiety.
Hence, people with a gluten allergy should always avoid foods rich in gluten or proteins. These ingredients commonly involve wheat bran, wheat flour, semolina, barley, rye, spelled, durum, malt, brewer’s yeast, and others. Among the food items, the commonly with gluten content involve whole wheat bread or pasta, most cereals until they are labeled to gluten-free, baked cooked, roasted nuts, muesli bars, soy sauce, salad dressings, marinades, pizza, or beer among the beverages.
Instead, meat, poultry, fish, or whole eggs are gluten-free and can be safely consumed by gluten-allergic people. Potato starch, chickpea flour, soy flour, almond flour, corn starch, and corn flour are also gluten-free and safe to finish by such allergic people. Among the oils, vegetable, olive, and coconut oil are safe for consumption without any allergic response.
