What Is Gluten?


What Is Gluten?

What is gluten? It’s a general name for the proteins found in wheat, rye, barley, and triticale – a cross between wheat and rye. It helps foods maintain their shape, acting as a glue that holds food together and it can be found in many types of foods, even ones that would not be expected. The introduction of these products took what was once an extraordinarily difficult diet to follow and made it much simpler and considerably more accessible for the many people who need it. These diets became increasingly popular due to the growing awareness surrounding people’s intolerance which fueled a rapid rise in the mainstream availability of these options.

But Gluten also offers a variety of functional culinary benefits and is responsible for the soft, chewy texture that is characteristic of many gluten-containing, grain-based foods. To eliminate confusion, gluten simply refers to a variety of proteins naturally found in cereal grains, such as wheat, barley, and rye. There is nothing inherently unhealthy about gluten, but people with certain medical conditions like celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, or wheat allergy should avoid it, as it may cause serious adverse reactions.
