It’s all the rage these days; companies are picking up on America getting smart, but we can’t get outsmarted in the long run. Standard american food is fortified with vitamins to make you think it’s healthy and use cheap, beat around the bush ingredients, to make you think it’s healthy AND affordable. When looking around Elena’s Pantry blog, she says what’s on my mind, gluten free is not healthy.
“With all of the hype surrounding gluten free, no one mentions the dirty little secret of the Standard Gluten Free Diet. Few realize that when it comes to gluten free baked goods such as bread, snacks, and desserts, gluten free food is not as nutritious as “regular” food. That’s because gluten free goods are generally made with ingredients such as rice, corn, potatoes, sorghum, tapioca and millet, which are higher in carbohydrates and lower in protein and other nutrients than wheat flour. Sad, but true. The typical gluten free ingredients that are used in place of wheat are less nutritious than wheat itself.”
