Bernier Marie's comment, December 15, 2014 2:51 AM
Attention, le phénomène de mode fait que de nombreuses personnes s'auto-proclament allergique au gluten et se sentent mieux après un régime sans gluten.
OK mais est-ce vraiment le gluten ? En effet, à notre époque de nombreux pains sont faits avec une grande quantité de levure. Cette levure en excès peut largement

provoquer des troubles digestifs !
La baguette de pain blanc contient 20g de levure de boulanger et la tradition seulement 2 g (voir le site http://fourapain.jeanlepine.com ) .
Alors, avant de vous auto-déclarer allergique au gluten faites le test simple d'éviter les aliments contenant beaucoup de levure. Enlevez de votre alimentation le pain

blanc (préférez le pain complet ou de tradition). Évitez les viennoiseries, les brioches et les pizzas qui contiennent beaucoup de levure mais par pitié n'arrêter pas le

pain (qui est notre alimentation de base depuis plusieurs millénaires ) ! Prenez bien le temps de réfléchir avant de vous priver d'un met d’exception !
