Let’s remember that we don’t have to copy everything we read in a magazine or follow the latest fad that compliment our friends or that the girl who secretly entranced on Facebook. What is not meant to be judged by everyone, for example, after a GLOYTeNIS free diet.
First, let’s understand what gluten is. According to the dictionary:
gluten-free.(noun). protein : tenacious, elastic substance especially wheat flour gives dough consistency
Gluten word comes from the Greek language and basically means “glue”. Due to the properties of elastic and sticky, gluten is an ingredient that prevents collapsing a piece of bread or cake. But, when this ingredient that interacts with our intestines, our metabolism and interferes with the absorption of nutrients. Also, because it has a paltry nutritional value in itself, gluten provides some benefits for our body.
Gluten is commonly used in the food industry as an additive in many products: sausages, hamburgers, sausages, sauces, breads, cookies, crackers, cereal and pasta, among others. The reason why many people are looking for a gluten-free diet is because a small percentage of the population is non-tolerant or allergic to gluten and is forced to look for alternative food solutions without it. Even if you avoid eating bread, there are many other products that contain gluten in small quantities. These products are those people who are allergic to gluten are looking in the “gluten-free” version.
Currently, there are other add-ons that can substitute the gluten and for this reason many products marketed as “gluten-free”. In addition, there are people who believe that eating foods with gluten makes you gain weight, so also seek a “gluten-free” when you buy their food.
Avoiding gluten has its advantages. There are people who experience higher levels of energy, better digestion, when they eat gluten. In addition, there are many who believe that eating gluten helps the body to absorb nutrients more efficiently and to lose weight. Seeking products without this ingredient, also we are forced to choose a wider variety of food items you can give our other diet nutritional values.
But eating “gluten-free” is definitely not for everyone. In order to be able to do it, you should stop eating all kinds of flour and ingredients made from wheat such as pasta, couscous, bread, Flour Tortillas, cookies, crackers, cereal, beer Pastelitos and oatmeal, among others. This can make it much more difficult and expensive to shop for food.
Here are some tips to find out if you are a gluten allergy or intolerance:
• Check with your doctor.
• Go through a “detox diet.” Begin eliminating foods made with gluten and see how you feel. If you feel better, keep reading. Otherwise, you may need to check with your doctor or tested to detect your gluten tolerance level.
• Get your blood tested for gliadin IgG antibodies. If you are allergic to any food type, your immune system will be activated and produce antibodies. These antibodies called immunoglobulin E, IgE, will be present in your blood and tissues. Gliadin IgG test specifically looks for antibodies that the immune system develops when they are exposed to gluten. If you have antibodies, you are allergic to gluten. If you have symptoms similar to the allergy, but no antibodies, you are probably sensitive to products that contain gluten.
• Elimination of gluten from your diet. There is no cure for celiac disease or a gluten allergy. The only viable remedy is to avoid gluten entirely. However, this can be complicated, as the grain used as additive in things like soups, sauces and dressings for salads, but if you know this, you can lead a normal life without gluten.
