Rice and Corn are Versatile Gluten-Free Grains

“Rice. Rice is available as whole grain brown rice or, when the bran is removed, white rice. There are long, medium and short grain varieties, with the shortest being the most sticky, as well as fragrant kinds like Basmati and Jasmine rice. The great thing about rice is that it’s very versatile. For example, it can be boiled and used in savory or sweet dishes, it can be puffed and eaten as a cereal or rice cake and it can also be ground into flour making it a great wheat substitute in breads, cakes and other baked goods.

Next, we have corn, which is another widely used and versatile gluten-free grain. Corn can be popped and eaten as popcorn, it can be puffed and eaten as cereal and other snacks and it can also be ground to varying degrees and used in polenta, grits, tortillas and tortilla chips and many other products.”

“Celiac Disease and Gluten

Gluten is a group of proteins found in wheat, rye, and barley that are toxic to those people with celiac disease. Gluten is not only contained in grains but it is also often a hidden ingredient in a large number of prepared foods, as well as some medications and dietary supplements.

So what causes celiac disease? While there is really no clear understanding, it is generally thought that a combination of genetic and environmental factors play a role. What we do know is that gluten containing foods play a major role in celiac diagnosis and the removal of these foods are most important in the treatment.

The toxic effects of gluten cause damage to the microscopic finger-like projections along the surface of the small intestine. It is the blunting of this normal absorptive mechanism that leads to the clinical manifestations of celiac disease including diarrhea, weight loss, and other systemic symptoms caused in part by vitamin and nutrient deficiencies. Left untreated, people with celiac disease can develop further complications such as other autoimmune diseases, osteoporosis or the thinning of bones, thyroid disease, infertility and even some types of small bowel cancers.”
