What is Gluten?
  • Gluten is a protein present in several grains that gives dough its elastic texture. Gluten is composed of two protein strands: glutenin and gliadin.



What Should be Avoided?
  • The main grains to be avoided include wheat, barley, rye, and oats. Although oats do not contain gluten themselves, they can often be cross-contaminated.



Who Should Avoid Gluten?
  • Those who have Celiac Disease and Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity. For individuals with Celiac Disease, the gut can work to repair itself over time if gluten is eliminated. For those who have a Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, symptoms can clear up once the protein is excluded.



Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease. For those individuals with celiac disease, when gluten comes in contact with the area of the gut where nutrients are absorbed (known as the villi), their immune system detects a threat. The immune system then tries to destroy the gluten proteins, attacking the villi in the process, and destroying a portion of the gut.


Celiac Disease
Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity
  • Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity is an innate immune condition, and the term describes those who react poorly to gluten. Although this condition doesn't destroy a portion of your gut, some symptoms like headaches and joint pain can cause discomfort.
