Gluten has become a rather hot topic lately, as gluten-free diets are becoming increasingly popular. This gluten-free trend has sparked some pretty heated debates; however, there isn’t enough evidence to conclude that gluten-free should be for everyone. A strict gluten-free diet is absolutely necessary for some: people who suffer from celiac disease are unable to process gluten properly, resulting in damage to the small intestine. More and more people without the disease, however, are turning to gluten-free foods as well.
While I eat gluten myself, I have experimented with gluten-free baking. This has helped me realize what a huge role it plays in baked goods.
