Defining Gluten-Allergy

Having a gluten allergy or sensitivity means your body doesn't like gluten. It can cause tummy troubles, tiredness, and headaches. Your immune system reacts to gluten, causing inflammation and symptoms like bloating and abdominal pain. Unlike celiac disease, it doesn’t damage your small intestine as much.

Though not life-threatening, it requires careful food monitoring to avoid discomfort.  

The solution? A gluten-free diet - which means bidding farewell to wheat, barley, or rye. 

So, let’s focus on a few tasty gluten-free treats to make sure your taste buds are as happy as your stomach!
