31 Jul Gluten Free Sweets!
A gluten-free frenzy has swept the country! More and more gluten-free foods have become available since awareness of Celiac Disease and gluten intolerance has increased, and that includes here at Sweetology. You might be wondering about the real benefits of going gluten-free, if it isn’t a dietary necessity for you. In addition to many gluten-free foods being delicious, some people without Celiac Disease still see benefits from limiting gluten.
If you test positive for Celiac Disease, it is imperative that you follow a gluten-free diet. The proteins found in gluten will damage your intestines and put your long-term health at risk. Even if you don’t have Celiac Disease, however, you may still suffer from some form of non-Celiac gluten sensitivity. In that case, ingesting less gluten can help aid in digestion and lower inflammation in the bowels. Many people note this as one of the most quickly noticeable benefits.
Another benefit that is a little less prevalent, but still recognized by some, is weight loss. Sticking to a gluten-free diet often limits the amount of processed foods available to you. In addition to having very high levels of gluten, many processed foods bombard your body with chemicals and preservatives. Avoiding these encourages you to opt for more natural foods such as fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. That in turn may aid in weight loss and contribute to overall better health.
