    I recently read that if it is processed to make it gluten free the additives are almost, if not completely, worse for you than the gluten.

    I have been told I should avoid gluten because of my condition [for lack of a better term], but it's hard as so much food has gluten, and as I said the stuff that has the gluten extracted could be worse for you. Not to mention the price.

      There is a book called Wheat Belly. It goes into details about how wheat has been hybridized so that wheat fields produce smaller plants with larger tops. The wheat we have today is nothing like the wheat years ago. It's browner and shorter. Hybridized means that through the years they have taken different strains of wheat to make a higher-yielding wheat.

      Doctors now days are recommending gluten free or wheat free diets for people with diabetes and high cholesterol also for obesity. There are some studies that say that some people can avoid medications for diabetes and high cholesterol by going wheat free.

      My youngest son has lost 58lbs. He lost it in 5 months by going wheat free. He wasn't overweight to begin with but he says he just didn't feel comfortable at the weight he was.

        If you do not have an allergy or a sensitivity to gluten then you should not be eating a gluten free diet. As a European said-Americans have a strange fixation with diets. "Wheat Belly' is actually caused by eating too much food. Americans eat too much food.

          I don't believe that gluten is extracted from foods it either is made without gluten or by not adding gluten. Gluten is hidden in many foods and is found in some artificial flavorings and colorings.

          We use almond flour or coconut flour for cooking and baking.

                Wheat has a higher glycemic index than sugar. Part of the reason people eat too much is because of the yo yo effect and cravings that wheat causes.

                        It's a protein.

                          Some people don't need to watch such things

                          As we age we adjust.

                              Gluten is hard to digest because it isn't water soluble. It taxes your system.
