Gluten free foods: 12 foods that are gluten free and can be used in your diet

Gluten-free foods are foods like fruits, vegetables and meats, for example because they do not contain gluten protein in their composition.

These foods are the only foods that can be ingested in cases of celiac disease, because in these cases, gluten can damage the walls in the intestine and cause diarrhea and abdominal pain making it difficult to absorb nutrients.

However, everyone can benefit by decreasing the consumption of gluten because gluten can cause bloating and abdominal discomfort.
