Gluten is a protein that can be found in many types of grains such as wheat and rye. About one percent of the population suffer from an autoimmune reaction after ingesting gluten, which is accompanied by an inflammation of and damage to the small intestine. They suffer from a gluten intolerance, also called coeliac disease. As even the smallest amounts of gluten can cause great discomfort to those affected, the only therapy is a life-long gluten-free diet.
However, discomfort can also be induced by a gluten sensitivity, which is not caused by an allergy. This can occur at any age and disappear again after a longer-lasting gluten-free diet.
Gluten can not only be found in types of grains but also in a lot of processed food. This is why those affected have to be particularly careful and take a close look at the ingredients stated.
