The Gluten-Free Basics

What is Gluten?

Gluten is that pesky little protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. It’s the “glue” that holds bread and pasta together, but for some of us, it holds a one-way ticket to Tummy Trouble Town.

Celiac vs. Gluten Intolerance

  • Celiac Disease: An autoimmune disorder where gluten consumption damages the small intestine.
  • Gluten Intolerance: Gluten makes you feel icky, but without the autoimmune component.

Pro-Tip: Whether it’s Celiac or gluten intolerance, consult your healthcare provider for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
