Thousands of people world-wide are allergic to gluten in food and have found that their health and fitness improve dramatically when they avoid foods containing gluten from wheat, oats, rye, and barley. So whats a gluten? Its basically the stuff that makes bread sticky, and it predominately comes from the grain chaff contained in most flours. Specifically, its a generic term for the water-insoluble proteins found in all cereal grains.
