What is Gluten?
Gluten is a type of protein found in grain. Its function in the plant is to nourish the plant embryo as the seed sprouts. Since the time people first started baking bread, they have used the gluten in flour to improve the elasticity of dough. Gluten helps bread rise during leavening, and gives the bread elasticity so it doesn’t crumble when sliced or pulled apart.
Which Foods Contain Gluten?
Gluten can be found in ingredients such as:
- hydrolyzed vegetable/plant protein
Gluten can also appear in ready-to-purchase items, such as:
- certain drug products
- cold cuts
- hot dogs
- baked goods
About Celiac Disease
Since there is no cure for celiac disease, people who live with the condition must learn about gluten and read food labels before eating any food. If they are not sure, they must contact the company to verify that the product doesn’t contain gluten or other allergies.
Gluten Sensitive Diet
Some people who don’t have celiac disease also may have symptoms when they eat gluten. Their condition is called No Celiac Gluten Sensitivity. If you suspect you may have gluten sensitivity, always consult a dietitian or a doctor who can answer your questions. A professional will advise you how to avoid gluten while eating a healthy, balanced diet.
