To Gluten or Not to Gluten?
July 5, 2016
There has been a lot of talk about gluten lately. Most of it is leaning towards the negative, but why has gluten, the protein found in wheat, rye and barley that acts as the glue that holds your bread together, been getting such bad press? For most people it's completely harmless and has many health benefits, such as being high in protein and iron as well as being low in fat and sodium. However, there are some people that suffer from gluten sensitivity or even worse, have Celiac disease. For these people, consuming gluten can cause headaches, bloating, chronic fatigue, abdominal pain, and more.
