From Celiac-Friendly Brews to Wheat-Free Dating

 - Aug 19, 2012
Gluten free is quickly becoming the new black, and it's pretty easy to see why. There are a number of benefits from cutting out gluten from your diet, such as showing benefits to those with ADHD and those with an auto-immune disorder.

Eating gluten free can also help with those suffering from thyroid diseases, autism and those with irritable bowels. For some however, eating gluten free is not a choice, but a requirement. Those with Celiac diseases have a condition that damages the lining of their small intestines and prevents them from absorbing any nutrients from food that could be beneficial. The damage is caused by reactions from eating products with gluten such as wheat, barley, oats and rye.

So it is great to see a number of companies and even restaurants that are applying a gluten-free approach to their food items.
