Gluten-free cake has always got the hype but it obviously has some solid reason and you will find it everywhere nowadays. A department store in my block, part of a large grocery chain, recently remodeled their frozen food section and grocery sections to billet all gluten-free products and also the baked goods section, especially the cakes. So, what’s all the fuss regarding gluten-free?
Gluten is a substance found in wheat and other grains. Gluten is a protein composite found in wheat and other related grain species like Spelt, Kamut, and triticale, and including barley and rye. This means it is also in any foods processed from these grains, or near these grains. The word “gluten” comes from the Latin for “glue.” Gluten gives elasticity to dough, helping it to rise and keep shape, and can provide the final product a chewy texture. As it acts as a thickener, gluten is incorporated in soup-making, gravies, chocolate sauces, etc.
Why Should You Avoid Gluten-Free Cakes?
Having a gluten intolerance can be anything from slight digestive discomfort to an extreme problem called celiac disease, where the smallest amount of gluten can cause severe illness.
Some people might find that when they remove wheat from their diets, they feel less bloated and have far fewer digestive discomfort. Since they feel better, they may decide to eat fewer wheat products or keep things gluten “light.” Some children who have a history of illness who are also suffering from weak growth and developmental delays may receive a diagnosis of celiac disease, once diagnosed, they seem to improve when on a gluten-free diet. Children with a diagnosis of autism, as well as children who have ADHD, seem to do better when on a gluten-free diet.
