Gluten, what is it exactly?

    Gluten free foods are a huge market right now. Gluten is a protein found in wheat and some other grains. Some people are allergic (celiacs disease) or sensitive to gluten, and eating it can make them sick. Celiacs is an autoimmune disease, and when people with celiacs eat gluten, it causes an attack on the small intestine. Gluten free has become a fad diet, which can be dangerous, because food marketed as gluten free can be highly processed therefore being high in extra sugar and fat. A gluten free diet should consist of nuts, fruits, veggies, meat and fish, soy, rice, beans, quinoa, potatoes, and other unrefined carbohydrates.
