Being gluten free means to avoid foods that contain a protein called gluten, which is found in wheat, barley and rye. Common gluten free foods include fruits and vegetables, rice, beans, nuts, and certain grains like millet, quinoa and buckwheat. Gluten free foods are typically thought to be healthier than their processed, gluten-containing counterparts. Those who avoid gluten may experience increased energy, improved digestion, better mental clarity and focus, and a stronger immune system. Going gluten free may also help improve or resolve symptoms of many gastrointestinal disorders and autoimmune diseases.
