For anyone who has Celiac disease; a gluten free diet is imperative. Although you may not have Celiac disease; you can still benefit from the protein found in gluten foods.
Since many of you may not be aware of Celiac disease; this is a serious disorder that can lead to damage in the small intestine. When someone eats food with wheat, rye and barley, this can lead to a serious health issue. In the first place, Celiac disease can affect people of any age.
