What is Gluten Intolerance?
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and some oats. It is most commonly found in bread, pasta, cookies, pizza, and cakes. Some less-obvious sources of gluten include condiments, flavorings, spices and medications. Children with gluten intolerance are unable to digest the protein found in these common foods. When a child with gluten intolerance eats gluten-contaminated foods, the immune system attacks the gut, flattening the cilli in the intestinal tract, which leads to chronic inflammation and malabsorption of nutrients.
