 Industry for Gluten Free Foods Growing

Many are opting for a gluten free diet either to aid weight loss, for health reasons or simply as a way to detox like many celebrities.

Victims of celiac disease are allergic to gluten, which is a protein present in wheat, barley and rye. Gluten harms the intestines and affects the absorption of vitamins and minerals in those suffering celiac disease.
