Approximately 3 million people in the United States, or 1 out of every 100, have Celiac Disease, an autoimmune intestinal disorder for which a gluten-free diet is necessary. As many as 1 in 7 people are Gluten Intolerant, or have what is now sometimes called Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity.
Gluten is a general name for the proteins found in wheat, rye, barley and triticale – a cross between wheat and rye. Gluten helps foods maintain their shape, acting as a glue that holds food together.
Gluten is the only protein found in food that is completely indigestible. Its indestructible molecules can slip through the intestinal lining and cause inflammation in the intestines of people with celiac disease, according to the Mayo Clinic.
