This talk will review the latest science on who should and should not go gluten – free. It will clarify the differences between celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, grain allergy and adverse reactions to certain components such as FODMAPs. Differences in the causes, incidence, and dietary strategies for each will be explored. The talk will discuss the rise in allergies and other autoimmune diseases and possible reasons for this including alterations in the microbiome. There will be a further discussion that builds on the fact the wheat has not changed and will look at what may have triggered changes in the microbiome. It will also address the role of gluten, dietary fiber and whole grains and gut health and overall health. It will compare traditional gluten- containing foods and gluten-free foods in terms vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber and cost in the context of whole diet.
