Understanding what Gluten Free Means

Gluten-Free diets have continued to gain popularity, particularly through the recent rise of people turning to positive lifestyles with increased understanding of the need for healthy food options. Whether you are considering Gluten-free options for specific health reasons, an overall more favourable health regime or are just curious as to how it could help you out - it is important to understand what it all means.

Gluten, a protein found in certain grains (wheat, rye, barley and their hybrids) as well as in some confectionery and certain beauty products. It is the ingredient commonly used to give dough its elasticity. The protein is often linked to tiredness and a decrease in strong brain activity. For many people, it also affects their immune system negatively, resulting in damage to the intestines. This is known as celiac disease and is one of the main reasons why people turn to gluten free diets. However, many more people also find the benefits in removing Gluten from their daily lives. Some of these benefits include ensuring a fully receptive digestive system, a decrease in cholesterol levels, weight-loss and a more energetic, productive lifestyle.

Fortunately, there are many Gluten Free options out there and so in turning to alternative products, we can quite easily continue to eat pizza, bread, pasta, deserts and other typically Gluten based products. Grains such as corn, rice, quinoa and many others do not contain gluten, so it is important to note that a gluten-free diet, is not necessarily a grain-free diet.

So, with all of this in mind and a better understanding of what Gluten Free means, why not give it a go? There are so many alternative options that do not contain gluten and so making the switch is now easier than ever! You just may find that you feel healthier, more energized and ready for whatever life throws at you!
