Gluten-free food could increase risk of obesity


A new study has found that Gluten-free food could increase the risk of obesity. As it generally considered that Gluten-free food is healthy, the new research comes as a shocking news to many.

The study found that gluten-free food contained more energy content including fatty acids and lipids.

“As more and more people are following a gluten-free diet to effectively manage Coeliac disease, it is imperative that foods marketed as substitutes are reformulated to ensure that they truly do have similar nutritional values. This is especially important for children, as a well-balanced diet is essential to healthy growth and development.” A spokesperson noted.

The unhealthy nature of the gluten-free products is also being blamed on poor labeling of these food items.
