Going Gluten Free

Why?

  • The only real reason to go gluten-free is because of Celiac Disease, otherwise known as Gluten-Sensitive Enteropathy or Celiac-Sprue
  • Gluten-free is not a new ‘fad diet’ for weight loss
  • People go gluten-free because they have to—it is a genetic autoimmune disorder!

What is Celiac Disease?

  • It is a disorder that causes inflammation of the small intestine as a result of ingested gluten
  • Gluten is a protein from, wheat, barley and rye
  • When gluten is ingested, it causes the villi (hair-like ‘fingers’ on the inside of the intestine) to become damaged and then unable to absorb nutrients from the food we eat
  • It can be dangerous and even life-threatening if left untreated

Symptoms include:

  • Abdominal distention, cramping, gas
  • Chronic diarrhea or constipation or both
  • Fatty stools (steatorrhea)
  • Anemia
  • Weight loss

Safe grains:

  • Amaranth
  • Arrowroot
  • Buckwheat
  • Cassava (manioc)
  • Corn
  • Flax
  • Grits
  • Hominy
  • Indian rice grass (Montina)
  • Job’s tears
  • Legumes (dry beans, peas, lentils)
  • Millet
  • Finger millet (Ragi)
  • Nuts
  • Nut flours
  • Poha flakes
  • Potatoes, potato starch, potato flour
  • Quinoa
  • Rice
  • Sago
  • Seeds
  • Sorghum
  • Soy
  • Tapioca
  • Tef (teff)
  • Wild rice
  • Yucca

Avoid these grains:

  • Wheat (einkorn, emmer, spelt and kamut)
  • Barley
  • Rye
  • Triticale
  • Malt
  • Oats (unless specifically labeled gluten-free). While oats are not considered an offending food, they are often processed in the same plant as wheat products and may become cross-contaminated.
