What is gluten intolerance?

It is an intolerance caused by ingestion of gluten and similar proteins that affects people with genetic predisposition. Gluten is a protein found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye, triticale (hybrid of wheat and rye) and others.

The gluten-free diet

The only current possible treatment is the gluten-free diet (GFD), which consists in eliminating all food products containing or cooked with wheat, rye, barley and oats, or any of its varieties and hybrids (spelled, kamut, triticale ...), and / or products, avoiding inadvertent contamination and all kinds of dietary transgressions.
