Gluten free seems to be everywhere these days. Over the last few years we’ve learnt a lot more about coeliac disease and know that coeliacs have to avoid gluten at all costs however following a gluten free diet could be beneficial to many more people but let’s go back a step first.
So, what is gluten? Gluten is the mixture of two types of proteins found in wheat, rye, barley and oats. It can affect a person who has been medically diagnosed with gluten intolerance and coeliac disease. There is no cure for gluten intolerance, and symptoms can only be managed by following an entirely gluten-free diet.
