The more I research about gluten the more I see it as an additive that we should aim to avoid. It is a major bully to the gut wall and also a phytate that means it robs the body of vital vitamins and minerals. It creates a massive blood sugar surge due to the amylopectin starch content and due to the higher gluten content is a major gut irritant creating a glue ball like substance in the gut, so linked to irritable bowel, inflammation and constipation. So whether you wish to lose weight, heal your gut wall and reduce mineral loss, avoiding gluten is one of the biggest steps you can make to improve your health and well being.
