Are you gluten free?
There are usually three types of people who follow a gluten free diet
Those with Coeliac Disease, an autoimmune disease where the protein in wheat, oats rye or barley damages the small villi in the small intestine. This means the gut cannot absorb food properly. It often leads to iron deficiency, weight loss, fatigue, bone deterioration - calcium loss. These people need to follow 100% gluten free diet. If you are Coeliac, then you need to choose products only from this category.
Those who are on a low FODMAP / Fructose diet. Wheat based foods contain fructans/ fructose and need to be limited in people who cannot tolerate fructans. It is not gluten itself that causes problems, but inadvertently it means gluten free foods are generally suitable.
Those with non - coeliac gluten intolerance. They may have been tested for Coeliac Disease and not had a diagnosis, but they just feel better when they don’t eat it.
Gluten is a protein found in wheat and is in a surprising number of products. It is found in wheat, barley, rye. Oats are not allowed on a Coeliac gluten free diet unless the person has approval from their doctor as it contains a similar type of protein to gluten and can cause the same problems. Oats are also often contaminated in the silos they are stored in. We sell uncontaminated oats for people who are able to manage them.
People who are either on a low FODMAP diet, who have non-coeliac gluten intolerance or who choose a gluten free diet can often tolerate small amounts of wheat or gluten and therefore can choose from our 'Gluten free ingredients' dietary filter as well as the 'Gluten free' collection
Most of our products are either 100% free from gluten or do not contain gluten as part of an ingredients so you should be able to find plenty of pantry staples and goodies.
