  • A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes gluten. Gluten is a protein composite found in wheat and related grains, including barley and rye. It causes health problems in sufferers of celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity and some cases of wheat allergy. Some people believe that there are health benefits to gluten-free eating for the general population, but there is no published experimental evidence to support such claims. A significant demand has developed for gluten-free food in the United States whether it is needed or not. About 1.6 million people in the U.S. are on a gluten-free diet even though they haven't been diagnosed with celiac disease.
