What Gluten Is
Gluten is the generic name for certain types of proteins found in common cereal grains â€“ mainly wheat, barley, rye, spelt, and kamut (versions of wheat), triticale (a grain crossbred from wheat and rye), and their derivatives.
Whom It Affects
Current estimates suggest that 1 in every 133 Americans suffers a reaction to ingesting gluten, which is present in many food and beverage products.
The Gluten Sensitivity Spectrum
Gluten is found in many foods otherwise considered wholesome, making the supermarket â€“ for those who have an intolerance for gluten or those with celiac disease â€“ a minefield. The sensitivity to wheat and associated glutens range from mildly annoying to very serious.
