white-bread

Many people are becoming intolerant to wheat due to recent modification of the grain that has increased the gluten content. Wheat can be found in

  • Bread (brown, white and wholemeal)
  • Cereals
  • Pasta
  • Couscous
  • Cakes

Effects on the body include

  • absorption block of vital vitamins and minerals
  • bloating and digestive problems
  • energy drain

If you are looking for wheat alternatives here are our recommendations

  • amaranth
  • pearl barley
  • buckwheat
  • maize (corn)
  • millet
  • oats
  • quinoa
  • rice
  • rye
  • soya
  • spelt (this is a wheat grain but the original unprocessed version)
Make sure you do not replace your wheat products for processed food in the freefrom aisle which is overloaded with sugar and can cause as much havoc on the body as wheat does.
If you are worried about food intolerance please contact Balanced Wellness for a food intolerance consultant and test.
