Being gluten free means eliminating gluten from a person’s diet. Gluten is found in wheat, barley and rye, so all wheat-based products, such as breads and pastas, must be avoided. Other gluten containing foods include many baked goods, beer, breakfast cereals, lunch meats, malt beverages and most processed foods. Fortunately, there are many alternative gluten-free foods, such as fruits and vegetables, meats, seafood, dairy products, nuts and ancient grains like quinoa, amaranth and teff. Going gluten free can have numerous health benefits, such as increased energy, improved digestion, and reduced inflammation. Gluten intolerance can manifest itself in the form of symptoms such as bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea and headaches. People who experience these symptoms may find relief by eliminating gluten from their diets. Additionally, a gluten-free diet may help improve long-term health outcomes for those diagnosed with celiac disease, an immune-mediated disorder.
