Our expert says:
If you are wheat intolerant or allergic to gluten, then you will have to check every food label carefully because most processed foods like bread contain wheat. Individuals with a true gluten allergy (gluten is a protein that is found in a variety of cereals), need to avoid all foods that contain wheat, rye, oats, barley, spelt, kamut, and titricale. This basically leave maize, rice and sorghum as safe grains. Click on 'Diet'n Food' at the top of this page and then on 'Allergy & Intolerance' to read more about wheat allergy.
