Gluten

Cereals with gluten free message.

Gluten is a protein that can be found in most cereals (wheat, barley, rye …) and, therefore, in flours. For this reason, many people believe that those who suffer from gluten intolerance should refrain from consuming all types of cereals.

On the contrary, there are other cereals that are perfectly compatible with a gluten-free diet, since they do not contain it. These cereals are:

  • Rice.
  • Buckwheat or buckwheat.
  • Amaranth.
  • Quinoa.
  • Corn.
  • Son
  • Oatmeal
  • Teff

In this way, people with gluten intolerance can enjoy these foods, including other cereals in their diet. However, we must bear in mind that many other foods may contain gluten, either as a main ingredient or due to contamination during processing. Among them, we can cite:

  • Beer
  • Pasta
  • Sauces
  • Concentrated broths

First Recipe for Gluten-Free Grain and Seed Bars

Oat Flakes: Gluten-Free Grain and Seed Bars

The best option to include in a gluten-free grain and seed bar is to opt for oatmeal. It is a cereal rich in vegetable fats and proteins. In addition, it is high in vitamins of group B and is rich in minerals such as magnesium, iron, sodium or potassium.
