It is a bit of a tricky one. Which grains can you eat? Which grains should you avoid like the plague?
I have pulled together a simple list to help you on your way!
Gluten Free :
- Corn (maize)
- Polenta (cornmeal)
- Oats (in most cases coeliacs can still eat oats… just be careful of the manufacturing methods!)
Not Gluten Free:
- Bulgar wheat
- Durum Wheat
- Emmer Wheat
Sooooooo, in a nut shell…. stick to the first list, and avoid the second list! Simple! Or not so simple… it can be pretty tricky remembering what you can and cannot have, finding it on a food label, identifying it on a menu, especially when, lets face it, we haven’t even HEARD of half of these!
But don’t worry… more information is on its way.
