Post Gluten Production

I have a question I thought I would pose to the board.
Do some food that contain wheat have lower gluten concentration? If I understand correctly gluten is produced when wheat is mixed with water (levened) gluten is what gives bread its body. But what about muffins and pancakes, where the batter is not levened or is risen by baking soda?

Secondly, what are some of the commerical names for gluten and wheat that should be avoided, such as
Hydrolyded vegetable protein, if I am not mistaken is a thickener made from wheat.

I have avoided all forms of wheat, but have found other foods that made me sick because of their unknown wheat content

I dont have any Gluten experience myself, although part of diagnosing IBS was a blood test for 'Coeliac Disease'. Which is where the digestive system reacts abnormally to Gluten.

But my partner has spent a few years nannying for Autistic children, where gluten was one of the many absolute no-no's for the kids. I dont think I can post links, but try searching for "gluten" and "elimination diet". Because its a common sensitivity. She doesnt believe its anything to do with the water. Gluten is one of the proteins found in Wheat, Barley, Oats & Rye.

Also once you remove something like wheat or gluten from your diet, youre then far more sensitive to its effects if you do accidently eat it. Youre body loses its tolerance to deal with the offending food.

Lastly something I had noticed, they do sell things in stores like gluten-free muffins/bread etc.. But they dont taste as good, and they are a bit of a boutique item. But they do exist. My partner also used to make casein gluten free items such as Biscuits, Scones & Chicken Nuggets.

Well, as part of my food diary I found out that I am sensitive to wheat, and therefore I have eliminated about 95% of all instances from my diet. The other 5% was accidental. Only a couple of times have I tried on purpose, under a doctor's care.

Luckily I have found a store that does have these type of health foods, I have made some things with it but you do have to enhance the flavor.

At this time, I am sooo afraid of eating anything with wehat that I cannot attempt to purchase anything with it in it.

Thanks for the response
