Frequently Asked Questions
Why eat gluten-free?
- You have an allergy or intolerance to gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and other grains. These people should avoid gluten to avoid allergic reactions or gastrointestinal symptoms.
- Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that causes damage to the small intestine in response to gluten consumption. People with this condition must follow a strict gluten-free diet to prevent damage to their gut.
- You simply choose to eat healthy gluten-free products for personal reasons, such as to lose weight or improve their overall health, even if they don't have gluten allergies or intolerances.
Is eating gluten-free a risk?
In any case, there is no risk in following a gluten-free diet even if you are not sick. It is still important to maintain a healthy and varied diet. This will not cause any deficiencies. This will lead to a healthier diet because gluten is very present in processed foods where it is used as a binder. Gluten is an elastic protein that gives dough its sticky, elastic texture. When the dough is mixed, the gluten expands and forms a fibrous structure that traps the carbon dioxide produced during fermentation and baking.
What cereals contain gluten?
- Wheat : All varieties of wheat, including durum, soft, Kamut and spelt, contain gluten.
- Barley : Barley also contains gluten and is often used in making beer.
- Rye : Rye is another grain that contains gluten and is often used in making rye bread and other baked goods.
- Triticale : Triticale is a hybrid of wheat and rye, and therefore also contains gluten.
- Spelled : Although some people consider spelled a gluten-free alternative to wheat, it also contains gluten and may cause problems for those with allergies, intolerances, or sensitivity to gluten.
It's important to note that gluten is also found in many processed foods, such as pasta, bread, cookies, cereals, energy bars, and other baked goods. It is therefore important to read food labels carefully to ensure that they do not contain gluten if you are allergic, intolerant or sensitive to this protein.
What is the difference between sourdough and yeast?
Yeast is a quick and effective leavening agent that is usually made from laboratory-grown yeast. It is added to the dough to allow it to rise quickly.
Sourdough, on the other hand, is a mixture of flour and water that has been fermented naturally with wild bacteria and yeast found in the environment. Sourdough adds flavor and moist texture to the bread.
