What does Gluten-Free mean?
“Gluten-free” describes products or diets that do not contain gluten, a protein present in wheat, barley, and rye. This is particularly relevant for those with conditions like celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, as consuming gluten can lead to digestive problems and other health issues. Gluten-free alternatives use ingredients like rice, corn, or quinoa, allowing people to enjoy a wide range of foods while avoiding gluten-related complications.
