(Nature World Report) – Anyone consuming too much gluten can suffer from celiac disease, which is an immune disorder. This disorder is responsible for causing an adverse reaction in the small intestine and if this reaction is in excess, the lining of the intestine can be damaged and absorption of nutrients gets difficult.
Several diets today claim to be gluten-free and are specifically for people who are allergic to gluten, which is a protein found in rye, wheat and barley. The study however states people allergic to gluten should not follow such diets blindly.
Researchers from the Celiac Disease Center at the Columbia University Medical Center (UCMC) found that there are traces of gluten in supplements with probiotics and this can cause an adverse effect on celiac disease patients. Fermented foods like yogurt, cheese and milk have probiotics as a major ingredient. This means that our guts become healthier as the live good bacteria balances out the bad flora within us.
