What is Gluten?

Gluten is a composite of storage proteins termed prolamins and glutelins and stored together with starch in the endosperm of various grass-related grains. It's a cross between rye and wheat. Gluten helps food maintain their shape, acting as a glue that holds food together.

                                       Rye, barley, and a grain has a gluten component but sorghum, brown rice, wild rice, and oats are gluten free.

Is Gluten has a side effect?

                           Gluten is only bad for certain people. These people are gluten-sensitive or gluten-intolerant, which means their bodies produce an abnormal immune response when breaking down gluten during digestion. About 18 million Americans have gluten sensitivity, according to the National foundation for celiac awareness.

                                        The most well known form of gluten intolerance is celiac disease, which affects one in every 141 people in the United states, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. When someone with celiac disease consumes gluten, it triggers an immune response that damages their intestines, preventing them from absorbing vital nutrients.

How to secure from gluten?
                           In cases of gluten intolerance, doctors recommend a gluten-free diet. Patients must avoid eating any foods and ingredients that contains gluten, including bread, beer, french fries, pasta, salad dressing, soy sauce, and even some soups, which are marked as a gluten free.

                                        Lastly i must say that take care and your health your responsibility.
                                                               Thank You.
