Avoiding Gluten Is Not as Easy as You May Think

1 2 3

Conservative estimates show that eighteen million Americans are suffering from gluten-sensitivity.  Gluten sensitivity is clearly a prevalent problem. The grocery store shelves are lined with new and increasingly savory products aimed to appeal to the gluten sensitive consumer, but with that being said avoiding gluten can still be very tricky.

You might find it shocking to learn that gluten is a super sneaky protein. It can be found in everything from your obvious piece of bread to such things as soy sauce, dressings, even pickles???  Even some of those healthy veggie burgers that work really well when you are short on time, can be a mine field.  It is important to read labels and understand where to spot gluten and why finding it is only half the battle.

Gluten is found in all grains. However the culprits for causing digestive problems are wheat, spelt, kamut, barley and rye. While these are the grains that gluten sensitive individuals are most concerned about, it should be noted that, barley malt or extract, bran, bulgur, couscous, durum, farina, faro, kamut, malt, orzo, panko, spelt, semolina and rye plus misunderstood grains such as, seitan, triticale and udon, either contain gluten or are often cross contaminated with gluten during the manufacturing process. 

If you don’t want gluten to catch you by surprise, be a detective. Additionally there are products on the market that you can lean on to help aid in gluten digestion, particularly when you are in a pinch.  All it takes is a simple Google search to find an assortment of digestive enzyme formulations. However it is prudent to do your research so you will be able to discern the better quality products that offer higher potencies and no fillers.

We recently scouted out an innovative and exciting product that supports gluten digestion. Glutenizer® Kiwi-Strawberry Digestive-Ade drink mix not only supports gluten digestion, it supports the digestion of other difficult to digest proteins as well!  

Glutenizer® is a deliciously satisfying drink that is generously fortified with target proteases, is Stevia sweetened and easy to mix up. Just add 16 oz. of cool spring water to one scoop (included in the canister) of mix and we can assure you there will be no turning back. You will be hooked!  The flavor is amazing. That  is a good thing since in reality gluten avoidance is not always possible. Glutenizer® is most effective when enjoyed with meals.  It is fortified with 1200 mg. of vitamin C, Stevia sweetened, non-GMO and kosher certified. It is even housed in a 100% recyclable canister.

Now more than ever, gluten-sensitive individuals do not need to be a victim of gluten. Bottom line… digestive support is within reach.
