What is Gluten?
Gluten is a family of proteins found in wheat, barley and rye. Gluten helps foods maintain their shape, acting as a glue that holds food together, giving bread its classic chewy, satisfying texture. Gluten can be found in many types of foods, even ones that would not be expected, such as soy sauce and even some French fries.
Any food made with cereals such as wheat, barley, triticale, rye, and malt
Cakes and pies
Malt derivatives, including malt loaf, malt vinegar, brewer's yeast, and malt-based beer and malted milk or milk shakes
Some types of soy sauce
Why is Gluten Bad for Some People?
In people with celiac disease, consuming just one crouton can cause health problems, as they cannot digest gluten at all. Following a diet that includes gluten can lead to severe illness. Going gluten-free can save the life of a person with celiac disease.
