When it comes to having to avoid gluten in your diet, there are a number of conditions that could be the culprit. The one that I am most familiar with is the autoimmune disorder Coeliac Disease. However, people who suffer from gluten or wheat allergies, intolerances and non-celiac gluten sensitivity also tend to follow a gluten-free lifestyle. 

Gluten intolerance is characterised by adverse reactions to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. As stated, Coeliac Disease (or Celiac Disease) is the most severe form of gluten intolerance and it affects about 1% of the population (NCBI). However, up to 13% of people may also have non-celiac gluten sensitivty, a milder form of gluten intolerance that can still cause problems both related to and unrelated to digestion (NCBI).

Gluten and issues resulting from consuming gluten are more mainstream than ever before. Thanks to increased campaigning, the rise of gluten-free processed foods and the popularity of low-carb diets that heavily rely on gluten-free recipes, more and more people are aware that gluten found in wheat, rye and barley can be an issue for some of us.

One of the reasons gluten intolerances and issues go unnoticed is that they can be difficult to detect. This is because the common symptoms of a gluten sensitivity tend to mimic other mild gastrointestinal issues. Most of us aren't in the habit of seeking medical advice for every upset stomach we have, for instance. Take a look at these common symptoms of gluten sensitivity or intolerance.

Is there anything better than warmed biscuits bursting with juicy fresh blueberries enrobed in a sweet sugar glaze? Hint, the answer is no. There's a fast food chicken chain in the south of the United States that makes the most decadent treats: these fluffy American-style biscuits with blueberries and drizzled with glaze. They are delicious, and of course, not gluten-free.
