What exactly is gluten?
Gluten is a protein that is naturally found in wheat, barley, rye and other cereal grains. Due to the unique properties of gluten such the ability to create different textures of food depending on how it is prepared (think soft bread vs al dente pasta), gluten is used as an additive to improve moisture retention and texture ( or “mouth feel”). Now, using gluten as a preservative is a no for us and why we avoid it in our Nourish’d meals. This means Nourish’d meal delivery will only include real, nutritious ingredients to impact your health in a positive way.
Why follow a gluten free diet?
There are many reasons a person would choose a 100% gluten free diet. If you are in the 1.42% of Australians that are gluten intolerant or coeliac it is recommended that you avoid gluten entirely. However, for the rest of the population there are some major benefits of avoiding gluten:
- May relieve digestive symptoms which include bloating, gas and fatigue;
- Can reduce inflammation specifically in the gut, thus treating damage;
- Boosting energy may occur as switching to gluten free alternatives can stop the feeling of being tired and sluggish;
- Can aid in weight loss due to the processed nature of gluten in junk food that can add excess calories that provide minimal nutritional value.
These benefits can easily be obtained through gluten free meal delivery with Nourish’d. You can access our meals by ordering once off or on a recurring basis so you can set and forget!
Are there any downsides to eliminating gluten?
In terms of eating gluten free, as with any diet there are positives and negatives. However, when consuming a great range of healthy fats, vegetables, fruits and grass-fed, free-range meat most of these negatives can be overcome. People who are on a strict 100% gluten free diet may be at risk of nutritional deficiency. Fibre, iron, folate and zinc are essential nutrients that may be missed when on a gluten free meal plan. If you are concerned please seek nutritional advice from a medical professional.
