Gluten is a protein that can affect many people negatively. It seems to be quite common nowadays for people to be allergic or even intolerant to gluten. Since gluten is found in many grains, it can be hard trying to find alternatives products.

It is important that you carefully read the ingredients section on products you buy in the supermarket to see if they contain gluten. However since many of us eat products like bread, pasta and cakes which all contain gluten, this task can add extra time to your weekly shopping. Most shops now carry gluten free or wheat free products like bread, pizza and biscuits but these products can be very expensive. Due to this fact many people need to find an alternative source of grain and now many health stores offer other products.

Gluten Free Chocolate CookiesOnce food is eaten, the nutrients are absorbed into the body and any waste is later excreted. But when you are allergic to gluten or even have an intolerance to it, any food you eat will instead upset your stomach.

You could experience symptoms like upset stomach (bloating, gas, diarrhoea), nausea, headaches, Irritability, weight loss or weight gain.

To determine if you are allergic to gluten or have an intolerance to it, an allergy test would need to be carried out. Once it was established that you were allergic to gluten or had an intolerance, you would then need to look at your diet and change your lifestyle to include products that don’t contain gluten

Here is a recipe which is made using rice flour and all organic products which don’t contain gluten.
