Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. This protein gets into your gut and causes intestinal inflammation, resulting in autoimmune disease and other problems. The most obvious sources of gluten in most diets are bread, pasta, breakfast cereals, flour, pastry, pizza bases, cakes and biscuits. Gluten can also be found in processed foods, such as soups, sauces, ready meals and sausages. Avoiding gluten can be hard, as wheat is so widely used in commercially manufactured, ready-made foods. Fortunately there are now a wide range of gluten-free products and resources available.
