gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes foods containing gluten. Gluten is a protein found in wheat (including kamut and spelt), barleyrye, malts, and triticale. It is used as a food additive in the form of a flavoring, stabilizing, or thickening agent, often as "dextrin". A gluten-free diet is the only medically accepted treatment for celiac disease,[1] the related condition dermatitis herpetiformis, and wheat allergy.

All in all, in this day and age especially with the advent of social media and the internet, having such dietary concerns are easier to tackle. Coupled with good forums like Veggieboards, sharing of information becomes easier too. Thank you Team Veggieboards!!!
