Only some grains have bad gluten. The gluten intolerance came about when new varieties were bred to have a un natural amounts of gluten. Think Wonder bread. Most grains contain gluten that doesn't hurt anyone... yet. Only Wheat, Rye, Barley have been over adulterated at this time.

Seed Oil Company has Pumpkin protein powder that i make into a pesto, and add to brown rice flower/almond flour cookies. They also sell Grape seed flour. It's strong medicine, so don't substitute more than 10% of any recipe.

You can find gluten free products at every grocery store in the US.

Stick to the outside aisles of the store, and focus on meat, fish, vegetables, tubers, and fruits -- all gluten free.

Most stuff marked gluten-free is junk. Full of highly-processed starches and sugars. It's a marketing scheme, not a nutritional bonanza.

REAL, WHOLE food in its natural form is always gluten-free, except, of course for grains. Real food rarely has a label ( except "organic" or "grassfed") or if it has a label it might have 2 or 3 ingredients at most. Real food is rarely "shelf stable" and almost never comes in a box.

All grocery stores in the US have real food if you know where to look (produce aisle, meat department, dairy case ( if you do dairy). That's where you find gluten-free real food, though its rarely marked as such. But caution: read any labels carefully as US manufacturers sneak gluten in unlikely places.

I would avoid packaged foods that are just gluten-free alternatives to the same junk food (gluten free crackers, pizza, cakes, etc). They don't technically have gluten but they are highly processed, full of carbs, and low in nutrients.

Just eat meat, eggs, fruits, and vegetables. If you want to eat more carbs then eat potatoes, sweet potatoes, plantains, fruits, etc. These foods are all available at all markets all over the world.

back about 20 ish years ago "fat free" products became all the rage. People thought they could eat all they wanted of things like Snackwells because they were marked "fat free." Well these products were worse for us than their normal original products in most cases because they had to add sugar, sodium, and a host of other unhealthy stuff to make it taste good. IMO I feel that this trend accelerated Americans rate of obesity and health problems to where we are today. It amplified many bad habits and perceptions relative to the SAD. "Fat free" was a a free pass to eat as much as you wanted of anything marked FF. Now it is hard not to feel that "gluten free" is going to be the next unhealthy trend although well intended by many. Something can be gluten free and not good for you. I hear it a few times a day from people or in the media. Marketers are jumping all over it. As an example they are pushing Rice Chex as "gluten free" and here are the ingredients "Rice, sugar, salt, calcium carbonate, barley malt extract." High processed rice is the first ingredient and sugar the second. How is that good for you? The awareness of gluten being bad for us is good but it seems to becoming another band-aid to our obesity epidemic and another excuse for folks to not just eat health real food. I'd write more on the topic because it actually frustrates me but I have to go finish my can of gluten free Mountain Dew. (end rant....)

Whole Foods has an abundance of gluten-free goods, but it's pretty expensive.

Hi ,

Gluten sensitivity causes a serious allergy called celiac disease that individuals who are allergic to gluten are prone to. They have to ensure to have a diet that is gluten-free. Mainly gluten is found in wheat, rye and barley so we should avoid these grains. Today there are a host of companies that can help you with some great gluten free products for good health. An example of a great company in US is Sheffafoods gluten free snacks product ??? you can Google them and take a look at their product line, they taste great too!
