what’s the deal with gluten-free diets?

About Gluten

Gluten is a gummy, sticky protein that occurs naturally in wheat, barley, and rye, and bread dough won’t rise properly without it. Additionally, gluten is added to or used in the following foods:

  • as a binder and texturizer in meat and fish substitutes
  • as a flavor enhancer in spice
