I have a nutrition question regarding gluten I know that gluten

This answer was rated:

I have a nutrition question regarding gluten I know that gluten is found in wheat and several other grains and is what gives elasticity to dough. I know that eating too many hamburgers hot dogs fast food can do intestinal damage in the long run. And I'm just talking about bread right now not other gluten-free foods. I also know we need grains in our diet and should not consider gluten-free unles you have sensitivity or celiac disease.

My question is if the only gluten-free product we eat is bread and we eat it in moderation as many servings as we're supposed to each day is gluten free in small amounts better on the intestines?
Hello and welcome, I am happy to help you today.

Firstly , gluten is not bad for your body. similarly, being gluten free is also not bad. What I mean is that being gluten free or including gluten in your diet in moderation is not bad.
Unless you are "gluten sensitive / intolerant" or having" gluten allergy", you may not avoid it.
Only in such people, taking gluten can damage the small intestine, otherwise it can be taken as a part of your diet.

If you have any further question, I would be happy to help you.


I hope my answer has helped you.
