Gluten sensitivity makes people pursue a restricted diet. Furthermore, persons with celiac disease need to continue this diet for their whole life. Certain grains like wheat, rye, barley, semolina and others contain gluten in an excessive amount. Hence, a diet plan should be followed by using foods that are safe and healthy. Except for preservatives, sauces, processed food and certain grains, most kinds of foods are allowed in such diet.
However, wheat is harmful to people with celiac disease. Food products made from wheat such as bread, pasta, pizza are blacklisted from the diet program. This doesn’t mean you cannot have a gluten-free bread or pizza. Food researchers have found out multiple ways to prepare such items.
