A gluten intolerance or gluten sensitivity is when the body can’t digest gluten found in foods such as wheat. A severe intolerance is also known as celiac disease and requires a complete avoidance of gluten containing foods. People who suffer from this intolerance often experience symptoms such as digestive issues, keratosis pilaris and even depression & fatigue.
Gluten gives foods a better texture – it makes doughs stretchy and sauces thicker. It can be found in lots of foods such as wheat and grains and so foods such as pastas, breads, crackers, cakes, biscuits, veggie burgers, seasonings and spice mixes can be just somne of the everyday foods that contain gluten. Plus even foods that are assumed healthy such as barley, bulgur, oats, and rye also include gluten which makes getting a good balanced nutrition often difficult. Here at Organic Athlete Living we have tons of protein powders, foods & snacks which are gluten free to help you and your intolerance.
Many of our proteins are plant based and so exclude gluten – they contain comprehensive blends and superfoods including pea protein and hemp protein, with added vitamins and minerals!
