Celiac.com 02/13/2018 - It is perhaps unsurprising that processed gluten-free foods are less nutritious than their gluten-containing counterparts. We've had data showing gluten-free foods to be high in sugar. We've had studies that show us they contain more salt. And now, for the trifecta, we have a recent study that shows us they contain more fat, sugar and salt. A study by the University of Hertfordshire surveyed more than 1,700 products from five UK supermarket chains and found that gluten-free foods have more fat, salt and sugar than their gluten-including counterparts, despite consumer perception that they "healthier" options. Except for crackers, every gluten-free food in the survey had more saturated fat, sugar and salt than non-gluten-free counterparts. On average for gluten-free brown bread and white bread had more than double the fat of regular breads. Gluten-free products also had significantly lower protein content than their gluten-containing equivalents, and were generally lower in ï¬ber and protein. Gluten-free products were also more likely to break the budget. On average, gluten-free products were also more than 1½ times more expensive than their counterparts, while gluten-free brown and white bread and gluten-free white and wholegrain flour sold at more than four times the price of comparable regular breads, on average. Overall, gluten-free foods are likely to be less nutritious and more expensive than their non-gluten-free counterparts. Basically, people on a gluten-free diet need to be extra careful about getting nutritious food. Simply substituting gluten-free versions of a a standard non-gluten-free diet likely means more fat, sugar and salt in your diet, along with less fiber. If you don't have a medically diagnosed reason for avoiding gluten, then be mindful about four food choices.
i went gluten free without being tested now im getting tested so i went back to eat gluten and everything tastes weird bread, pizza, cookies everything has a really Strong taste and im actually not enjoying this at all it doesnt taste the same as before i went gluten free it tastes bad and Strong and weird it has been 2 weeks eating gluten and everytime it tastes like that :/ and also everytime i eat normal amounts of fat foods i feel nauseous i wonder why that is
I've heard a few times now that it is important to consume enough fat when on a gluten free diet. Obviously fat is important no matter what but why is it especially important when eating gluten-free? Does it help the small intestine or something else related?
Hello again, I was just wondering if anyone else had bad probelms with too much salt or fat? I ask because yesterday i ate a whole bag of salted/roasted macadamia nuts, its not a big bag but enough. I do eat them occasionally but not a whole bag. So i woke up this morning with agonising cramps in my lower stomach and the inevitable happened, really loose stool, like mud, not watery, and had to go to relieve myself a few times before the cramping died down, i also took a paracetamol because it hurt so much, i rarely, rarely do this. I think cramps are a natural thing but this morning was too much. I also had rice last night which if anything usually binds me up, but i've been reading more and more about how rice can adversly effect some people when they have too much. But i don't think i have as i havent had it for quite a few days now. So I'm wondering if people on here if they have to much salt/fat do you get these types of symptoms and does it make sense? If so I'l stay away from the amcadamias no matter how delicious they are. Thanks in advance.
