Gluten and gliadin are the two primary proteins that are found in wheat, rye, oats, barley, spelt, kamut, and triticale. It gives bread the ability to rise during baking and is responsible for bread dough’s elasticity. Gluten sensitivity is one of the important triggers contributing to the development of autoimmune disease in conjunction with Intestinal permeability (leaky gut syndrome) and a family history of autoimmune disease. It is estimated that 42% of the American population is gluten sensitive and less than 1% of the population is aware that they are gluten sensitive.
