Understanding Gluten-Free: A Guide to Healthy Living

You’ve probably heard the term “gluten-free” recently, as more and more food manufacturers are offering gluten-free products like bread, cookies, pizza, and even beer. But what exactly does “gluten-free” mean? Let’s dive into the details.

What is Gluten?

The term “gluten” comes from the Latin word for glue. When flour is mixed with water, it gets a sticky, glue-like consistency because of gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, etc. Gluten gives dough its elasticity, helping it rise and keep its shape. For most people, gluten is harmless. However, for those with gluten sensitivity, consuming gluten can lead to health issues.

What Does Gluten-Free Mean?

Any food that does not contain the gluten protein is considered gluten-free. This includes foods like millet, fruits, vegetables, poultry, nuts, and seeds. Going gluten-free isn’t just about avoiding certain foods; it’s a healthy lifestyle choice for those with celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or intolerance.

Common Sources of Gluten

Many everyday foods contain gluten, such as:

– Wheat-based products: bread, biscuits, cakes, and other bakery items

– Oats (unless specified gluten-free)

– Sauces: soy sauce, barbecue sauce, gravy mixes, and ketchup

– Pasta: noodles, spaghetti, gnocchi made with wheat flour, and dumplings

Millets: The Best Gluten-Free Option

Millets are naturally gluten-free and packed with protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They are an excellent choice for anyone looking to adopt a gluten-free diet. Including millets in your diet can provide numerous health benefits, boosting your nutritional intake and promoting a balanced, healthy body.
