Will A Gluten-Free Diet Really Make You Healthier? - Consumer Reports

Will A Gluten-Free Diet Really Make You Healthier? - Consumer Reports | GlutenFreeScoop | Scoop.it
Get your grains. Whether you’re on a gluten-free diet or not, eating a variety of grains is healthy, so don’t cut out whole grains. Replace wheat with amaranth, corn, millet, quinoa, teff, and the occasional serving of rice.

Shop the grocery store perimeter. Stick with naturally gluten-free whole foods: fruit, vegetables, lean meat and poultry, fish, most dairy, legumes, some grains, and nuts.

Read the label! Minimize your intake of packaged foods made with refined rice or potato flours; choose those with no-gluten, non-rice whole grains instead. Whenever you buy processed foods, keep an eye on the sugar, fat, and sodium content of the product.

New clue in coeliac disease puzzle: Cause of oat toxicity explained | Australian Food News | GlutenFreeScoop | Scoop.it
Melbourne researchers have identified why some people with coeliac disease show an immune response after eating oats.
MillerP's insight:

A key excerpt from the article:

“This study provides specific detail on the parts of oats stimulating immune responses, and highlights the relevance of grains other than wheat in coeliac disease,” Dr Tye-Din said. “This is a vital piece of the puzzle that informs the development of targeted tests for oat toxicity and the design of new treatments for people with coeliac disease,” he said.

Backlash has begun against gluten-free dieters

Backlash has begun against gluten-free dieters | GlutenFreeScoop | Scoop.it
As more Americans just say no to gluten, critics call the diet a fad.
MillerP's insight:

Interesting quote, "This has led to what Leffler calls the gluten-free paradox: 'Most people who are on the gluten-free­ diet don’t have celiac disease, and most people who have celiac disease don’t know that they have it and don’t eat gluten-free.'"

Attacking Gluten-Free: This Fad Must Die!

Attacking Gluten-Free: This Fad Must Die! | GlutenFreeScoop | Scoop.it
For more than 93% of the world, gluten is perfectly fine. But marketers don't mind a bit if we all think otherwise
MillerP's insight:

I shouldn't be surprised I suppose. But it is still very annoying that writers continue to produce articles attacking gluten-free diets and dieters. I've been gluten-free since 2008 when my Celiac disease could no longer be ignored. And ever since then, I have seen an almost endless parade of these articles. They have a highly clickable title, making them perfect for sharing across social media.

 

http://time.com/2912311/eat-more-gluten-the-diet-fad-must-die/

 

They begin with some sort of catchy hook, usually a stupid pun or bad joke on the word gluten. The first few paragraphs will deride the stupidity of band-wagon dieters. But to be sure, the fourth paragraph will admit that Celiac disease is a real thing and a gluten-free diet is a must for many people. But the rest of the article will continue the attack, as if the author is some sort of self-appointed righter of wrongs, a crusader for truth. Never mind that these articles almost always introduce some sort of fallacy. It's hardly worth the energy responding to these writers. What good does it do? (Although I must admit that it is very satisfying to see someone take an author to task in the comments section of the article.) I really just want to tell them how unoriginal their work is. Especially now that there are hundreds of these types of articles, how does one write such dreck for a high profile magazine like Time?

MillerP's insight:

My simple question is, "Why?" First, it doesn't sound as if this has been done with any success yet. Second, do we really need wheat this badly? Reading labels is complex enough already without adding a "safe" version of wheat to the mix.

Madison brewery crafts gluten-free beer http://t.co/2VWLWS2xWw #thebeernews.com
MillerP's insight:

Easton had been a homebrewer for more than 15 years, but when his wife, Maureen, an avid beer drinker, was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2007, it forced him to stop making beer in his home. In 2010, he began trying to make gluten-free beer. It took him almost two and half years to come up with a recipe that resulted in a good-tasting beer.

“You want to get the right sugar profile so that your yeast is happy in the fermenter and is producing a really good flavor and nice clean taste,” Easton said. “You don’t want that sorghum punch.”
