A common question I get is what is a gluten free diet plan? That’s what this podcast will cover, along with why is it a better option and some of the possible consequences of eating gluten, so I think you’ll find out a few things about gluten.
I often recommend following a gluten free diet because it always seems to make such a big difference to peoples health and how they feel.
Gluten Filled Grains
The 3 main types of glutenous grains are wheat, barley and rye.
Wheat and derivatives of wheat such as durum, semolina, graham, spelt, kamut, and tritricale and also things like hydrolyzed wheat protein, wheat starch, or wheat germ, couscous, bulgar, and semolina.
Barley contains gluten – and anything containing malt as it is a derivative of barley.
Rye contains gluten.
