If I ever need a quick fix for a leaky radiator, I'll try some gluten.

SEO? I agree with "poorly written" and "crap." The repetition and lack of nuance makes it seem very high school...

Thanks, usually downvoted for being impossibly dense. (The PH crowd is less ironic these days. It's statistically significant.)

Proteins are different. Gluten is problematic for us in a variety of ways, but the key one is that it can pass through the intestinal wall intact. For us to use a protein, we have to digest it, break it down, and only then should it enter the blood stream as anonymous amino acids. Gluten circumvents this and so is essentially difficult to digest. So the article is plain wrong, and 'gluten tolerance' is merely a spectrum of how much mischief gluten can cause in the body for different people. You can't be sure until you've removed it whether it's affecting you.

lol, in this case the wheat is the chaff and should be separated from everything else since gluten is harmful to the body.

Yeah I guess I was reading it under the assumption that protein is good for you and the author implies that gluten is the same as any other protein if you don't have an allergy. So my real question is it the case that if you don't have a gluten allergy that gluten is created equal

When researching info on diet and health on the internet you need to separate the wheat from the chaff.

My thought is that whole blog, never mind the article, is poorly written SEO crap that only exists to give some google-juice to the links embedded in the text. It reads just like comment spam only longer.

I don't see any claims in that article that gluten is good for you, only a general (unsupported) assertion that it is safe if you're not allergic.

Just to qualify, gluten makes me sick as a dog... therefore, it's bad... for me. =)

I've taken a food science class, where we learned that an advantage of gluten is for cooking since it allows bread to rise and have a stable structure. What we didn't learn is that that's the only advantage of gluten, while there are a myriad of harmful things it does to the body, which you can read about here http://www.wheatbellyblog.com/. At the end of the article the writer says gluten is generally safe, which the science tells us is not true, this was the premise of Dr. Davis's book, Wheat Belly.

It's wrong that you can wash out the gluten. When you do what is recommended, you wash out the starch and keep even more gluten. This is such an egregious error.

I don't think the blogger says it is good for you - just that it is helps give structure and texture to bread.
