What is Gluten?

Changing to a gluten-free diet has created a lot of buzz more recently as people come to learn of their gluten sensitivity or those with celiac disease. Gluten is a protein found in wheat and several other grains, that acts as a glue to hold foods together and maintain their shape. The big three sources of gluten include wheat, barley, and rye.

Wheat is commonly found in
Baked Goods
