Toasted Corn Crisp | Is Going Gluten-Free Good for You?
February 25, 2019
What you feed your body with can either make you healthy or sick. The sad part of today’s diet is that there is a vast selection of unhealthy food. Most of the time you find yourself caving into your cravings. If you love to snack, there’s a gluten-free option for you! There’s a healthier option for that as well and it’s called Toasted Corn Crisp.
What is Gluten?
Gluten is a kind of protein that is present in certain grains such as barley, rye, and wheat. This type of protein is totally indigestible. What makes it harmful is that it contains imperishable molecules that could settle in the walls of your intestinal lining causing inflammation especially for people who are diagnosed with celiac disease. In healthy individuals, the small intestine is covered with villi or finger-like projections that absorb nutrients. Unfortunately, for those with celiac, gluten can easily irritate the intestinal lining triggering the immune system to destroy the villi. When villi are destroyed, it can no longer absorb the nutrients from food.
What Is A Gluten-Free Diet?
There are foods that are naturally free from gluten such as fresh eggs, seeds, nuts, beans, sorghum, amaranth, wild rice, brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa, and certain oats. Other gluten-free foods include fresh meat, fish (as long as fish is not marinated or coated in batter mixture) and poultry, vegetables, fruits, and most dairy products. You should avoid candies, cereals, cookies, crackers, croutons, pies, cakes, bee, and bread unless they are labeled gluten-free.
