      Gluten Free Products
      What are gluten-free products?

      Gluten is an amorphous protein found in the seeds of many kinds of cereal (wheat, barley, rye, triticale, and possibly oats) combined with starch. It is responsible for the elasticity of the flour dough and gives the elastic and fluffy consistency to baked doughs.

      People with gluten intolerance suffer from well-known celiac disease, but do we know what celiac disease is and how it works?

      Celiac disease (CD) is a permanent gluten intolerance of wheat, barley, rye, and probably oats that occurs in genetically predisposed individuals. It is characterized by an immune-based inflammatory reaction in the mucosa of the small intestine that hinders the absorption of macro and micronutrients. That is why it is so important that people who suffer from it pay special attention to their diet knowing perfectly which foods contain gluten or may contain its traces.
      What foods and cereals DO NOT contain gluten?
      Generic gluten-free foods are: meat, fish, fruits, vegetables, eggs, legumes, vegetables, milk, potatoes, etc. (unprocessed food at the industrial level). GLUTEN-FREE Cereals: Rice, corn, quinoa, amaranth, millet, sorghum, cassava, buckwheat or buckwheat. If we are celiac, we must always look at the labelling of all the products we buy to make sure that it does not contain gluten.
