Gluten is a protein that is found in wheat products. People who suffer from coeliac disease cannot digest gluten at all – as it can cause damage to the small bowel. Similarly, people with a gluten intolerance (where they have difficulty digesting the gluten protein) need to avoid wheat-based products because they can cause symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain, vitamin deficiencies, and more.
Awareness for coeliac disease and gluten intolerance has increased in recent times, and as such it’s now possible to buy gluten-free bread, pasta and more in supermarkets.
