Many people have heard of gluten before, but how many people know what it is?  How many people are unable to eat it or choose not to?  What common foods contain gluten?

According to Dr. Fasano, director of the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research and one of his recent studies, it is estimated that celiac occurs in one in every 133 people, while about 6%-7% the US could be affected by gluten sensitivity.

Gluten is a protein found in grains such as wheat that causes an elastic texture of sorts.  It is found most commonly in wheat products such as breads and cereals, but many other foods unexpectedly contain gluten.

Surprising foods with gluten:

  1. Soy Sauce
  2. Fried foods
  3. Salad dressings
  4. Certain rice and pastas
  5. Some pickles
  6. Certain hot dog brands
  7. Veggie burgers
  8. Fried foods
  9. Licorice
  10. Some chips such as corn tortilla chips

Gluten sensitivity can be caused by a number of different ailments or diseases, including celiac disease, gluten ataxia, and irritable bowel syndrome.  People with gluten sensitivity can experience abdominal discomfort and upset stomach, as well as fatigue or even depression.  Avoiding gluten for anyone with conditions such as these improves overall health and mood.

Doctors do not recommend that people without gluten sensitivity go gluten free.
