Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. It is a composite of two proteins: prolamins and glutelins. Wheat is one of Westerners’ main diets, but some people have unpleasant symptoms after ingesting gluten.

 

People who are not suitable for eating wheat products generally have three major reasons:

Wheat allergy:

It is the body's allergic reaction to gluten that causes itching, rash, swollen mouth, swollen throat, asthma and in severe cases, migraine or epilepsy. Symptoms usually appear within two hours after consuming gluten.

 

Celiac disease:

A digestive system disease. Severe diarrhea occurs when one’s body is unable to digest gluten; which causes inflammation of the intestines in the long term. It is estimated that 1% of white people are with this disease.

 

Gluten Intolerance:

In patients with gluten intolerance, the symptoms are usually mild, such as abdominal bloating, diarrhea and so on.

 

Since gluten allergy does not cure with drugs, the best way to reduce gluten allergies is to avoid ingesting gluten-containing foods. According to Codex Alimentarius (Codex Stan 118-1979) and the European Union (EU No 1169/2011), gluten-free is currently defined as having a content of gluten below 20 ppm.
