Have you considered going Gluten free?

Gluten is in so many of our foods these days and its not until you try and cut it out that you realise exactly how many products contain gluten. Gluten is found in wheats, rye and barley etc and so is often in breads, pastries, cakes, cereals and even sausages.

It is often needed to bind food together and gives dough its elasticity. There is often mixed reviews as to whether Gluten is good or bad for you, but for some people they have an intolerance to it. This is called celiac disease.  

Someone with celiac disease may experience discomfort after eating gluten and often need to adapt their diet to try and cut it out completely if possible. There are alternatives and many everyday products can come in a Gluten free form but often at a higher price and not always ease to find.

A simple blood test can be done to say whether you are Gluten intolerant and it only costs around £40.

Giving up gluten is not always easy but if you are feeling discomfort after eating breads and pastas etc then it may be worth a try cutting it out for a few months and see if you notice a difference.
