What is Gluten?
Gluten is a type of protein present in wheat that makes it elastic and stretchy. If you’ve ever watched RumaliRotis (or pizza dough) being made, that stretchy texture is provided by gluten.
Why is it bad?
Many people are gluten intolerant. This means that the body cannot digest gluten resulting in bloating, gas, diarrhea and constipation.
In the old days this was frequently misdiagnosed as GERD or ulcers.
Celiac Disease is a severe form of Gluten Intolerance and requires medical diagnosis.
What’s the good news?
The Indian diet is filled with healthy whole grain options, like Jowar, Ragi, and Rice; that are all gluten free.
And with Serapheena’s 100% certified gluten free products, being Gluten free is easy and healthy!
