- A gluten-free diet avoids foods made with wheat, barley, rye and triticale, a cross betwen wheat and rye. Gluten is the protein found in these grains that gives dough elasticity to rise and hold a shape. Adherents can avoid these foods altogether or consume gluten-free substitutes, such as gluten-free flours. Gluten-free flours are made from plants other than rye, wheat, oats, and barley. In order to provide a way for these doughs to expand they are bonded with xanthan gum, a bonding agent that also becomes elastic so that yeast can build the bread’s structure.
A gluten-free diet is used to treat celiac disease, which is relatively rare. Gluten causes inflammation in the small intestines of people with celiac disease. Eating a gluten-free diet helps alleviate the unpleasant gastrointestinal symptoms experienced by those with celiac disease. Going gluten-free has become very popular with adherents who follow it for weight control or because they believe the omission of gluten makes them feel better, even though they do not have a celiac diagnosis.
