A gluten-free diet is an eating plan that excludes foods containing gluten. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.
A gluten-free diet is essential for managing signs and symptoms of celiac disease and other medical conditions associated with gluten.
A gluten-free diet is also popular among people who haven't been diagnosed with a gluten-related medical condition. The claimed benefits of the diet are improved health, weight loss, and increased energy.
