Gluten Free: What you need to know before planning your diet

If you are planning to follow a gluten-free diet, there is a long list of things that you should keep in mind. The first thing you should understand is the definition of Gluten. Gluten is basically a type of protein which is found primarily on wheat, rye and similar grains.

A gluten free diet is basically a diet plan which excludes such food items. It is usually taken up by people who have gluten-allergies or celiac diseases which causes intestinal damage upon consumption of gluten.

When you are taking up a gluten free diet, it is ideal to avoid most types of breads although there are gluten free alternatives that you can try. It should also be noted that many cereals have gluten and they should be off the table as well. As an alternative, you can try corn and rice cereals.
