Our expert says:
All wheat products will contain gluten. Gluten is also found in rye, oats, barley, spelt, kamut, and titricale. The problem is not excluding the gluten from a person's diet, but the fact that the foods which contain these cereals (wheat, rye, oats, etc) are rich in B vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre. The only cereals left to eat if a patient needs to exclude all gluten, are rice, maize and sorghum. If you ensure that your child still eats brown rice, unsifted maize meal and even tries sorghum, then she/he will probably not suffer from any vitamin or mineral deficiencies.
