Welcome to Gluten & Wheat Free

Welcome to gluten-wheat-free.co.uk, a website with recipe ideas and information to assist with a gluten and/or wheat free diet.

More and more people are having to or are choosing to remove gluten and wheat from their diets. Those suffering from coeliac disease have an adverse reaction to gluten, a dietary protein found in three types of cereal: wheat, barley and rye. Eating foods containing gluten can result in very serious symptoms, and therefore a strict gluten free diet is a necessity.

These mini morsels are super easy to make and are delicious served warm or at room temperature alongside drinks at a party or can be eaten with salad for a quick light lunch. I have used ham, cheese and spring onion but there are loads of variations you could make. Experiment with your favourite foods and come up with your own creations.

This is another banana loaf recipe, but without the other added ingredients. It’s a great way of using up the ripe bananas in the fruit bowl, that nobody wants to eat.

Chicken Biryani

Chicken Biryani is a popular South Asian dish of rice, chicken and spices. My family don’t like food that is too hot, so this is a firm favourite. Big on flavor, it smells delicious when cooking and tastes even better.

With so many people being diagnosed with Coeliac Disease, it is becoming increasingly easier to buy gluten and wheat free products. Food manufacturers and supermarkets have to label their foods clearly, highlighting whether the product contains gluten and wheat. Restaurants are much more aware of the need for both gluten and wheat free options on their menus and ensuring that there is no gluten and wheat cross contamination when food is being prepared and cooked.

There are many other reasons why people choose to omit gluten and wheat from their diets. Life style choice, intolerance, can help some skin conditions, can help with the symptoms of IBS, less flatulence and the desire to eat less processed foods are just some. Removing foods that contain wheat and gluten has become popular amongst athletes, with many high profile and successful sports stars following a gluten and wheat free diet.

If you are considering removing wheat or gluten from your diet, it is advisable to seek medical advice first by speaking to your GP or healthcare professional.
