Gluten Free

Gluten is a protein in wheat, rye, triticale (a cross between wheat and rye) and barley—an important component in bread and other baked goods that help in rising (elasticity) and texture. There is nothing inherently wrong with gluten and should not be avoided by healthy people. However, over the last few decades there has been an explosion of food sensitivities ranging from mild to severe, with a spectrum of symptoms from barely noticeable to causing serious illness. Gluten intolerance is fairly common—and when gluten found in several grains damages the absorptive surface of the small intestine, the condition is called celiac disease. When there is bloating or abdominal pain, fatigue or headaches without intestine damage after ingesting foods with gluten, it is not celiac, but simply a food sensitivity.

As of today, there is no known cure for celiac disease, but for the most part it can be effectively treated and controlled. The most important tool is a well-managed gluten-free diet so that a person with the disease need not feel deprived. Good n Natural recognizes this need for the accessibility of gluten-free food, which is why our gluten free section features brands that are known both for their taste and quality.
