WhatisGluten.net recently updated its website with a new article about which gluten products to watch out for during Thanksgiving.
The “Gluten-Free Thanksgiving” post is timely information for anyone with a gluten allergy or celiac disease. It discusses what items in a traditional Thanksgiving dinner could contain gluten and how they can be avoided. “We provide people with a gluten allergy with great advice on how to steer clear of gluten as they enjoy their holiday meal,” said Melinda Knight, who authored the article.
WhatisGluten.net is an established and trusted source of information on the topic of gluten. “We are the authority on what gluten is and how to avoid gluten with certain menus during the holidays,” Knight said. “Our site has been around for several years, providing insight on what is gluten even before it became a popular diet.”
In addition to offering unique advice for specific holiday foods with gluten, WhatisGluten.net offers general information on the topic. The website covers the basics about gluten, gluten allergy and gluten intolerance. It also includes other helpful features such as a Gluten-Free Candy List, Foods Containing Gluten: The Ultimate List and iPhone Apps for Gluten-Free Living.
Gluten is a type of food protein that is typically found in grains such as wheat, rye and barley, as well as other carbohydrates. However, gluten is not present in many grains and cereals, including wild rice, millet, amaranth, quinoa, oats, soybeans, sunflower seeds and buckwheat. Gluten is often used in sauces, flavorings, flavor enhancers and even as a binder or filler in vitamins and supplements.
Contrary to popular belief, gluten is not necessarily bad for your health. However, some people have a difficult time digesting gluten and should avoid gluten entirely. Gluten allergy and intolerance can cause a wide variety of symptoms, including nausea, diarrhea, constipation, hair loss, joint pain, diabetes, arthritis and even depression. As with any suspected health-related issue, people should consult their physician before going on a gluten-free diet.
