A gluten-free diet is essential for anyone with coeliac disease or a severe gluten intolerance. It’s important to be careful when shopping because many items include gluten even if they don’t explicitly say so.
Gluten is found in foods with wheat, rye, barley or oats. To avoid gluten, whole-food diets are best, featuring food such as vegetables, fruit, lean meats and natural dairy foods.
Legumes and healthy fats are also gluten free, unless processed. It’s important to find the right balance for you.
A little bit of gluten is fine, provided you don’t have a medical reason to avoid it.
