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.
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.
