Our decision to go wheat free was brought on after i read "The Wheat Belly". It was a very enlightening book and I was disgusted with what is put in our food and still labelled "heart healthy grains"! Anyways, I won't go off on a rant there cause that could take me a long time!
Since I have been on my wheat free diet I have also started seeing a Naturopath and after doing some testing I found out I'm Gluten sensitive. So I'm not allergic to it but my intestines will definitely get inflamed when I eat gluten.
Since I have been told this and have passed this info along to clients and friends, the #1 question I get is "Isn't that the same as wheat?" The answer is NO!
