Being gluten free means eating food that doesn’t contain gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. Gluten free foods generally include meats, poultry, fruits, vegetables, most dairy products, beans, lentils, flours made from rice, almond, quinoa, and potato, as well as many popular snack foods. There are many health benefits to being gluten-free, such as improved digestion and increased energy levels. Gluten-free diets also provide an important source of essential vitamins and minerals that are essential for body cell growth and healing. Additionally, avoiding gluten may reduce inflammation and positively affect people with autoimmune diseases such as celiac disease or rheumatoid arthritis. Ultimately, choosing a gluten-free diet can have many benefits for your health and overall well being.
