Whether you guessed it or not, the answer is Gluten!

Gluten is a protein that can pose challenges for those with gluten-related disorders.

Celiac Disease: For people with celiac disease, consuming gluten triggers an immune response that damages the small intestine. This can lead to a range of health issues, making a strict gluten-free diet essential.

Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity: Some individuals experience digestive discomfort when consuming gluten, even without celiac disease. This is known as non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

Label Scrutiny: If you're gluten-sensitive, reading labels becomes a superpower. It's crucial to identify hidden sources of gluten in processed foods and condiments.

Gluten-Free Alternatives: Thankfully, the world of food innovation offers gluten-free flour like almond, coconut, and rice flour. This allows everyone to enjoy favourite dishes with a twist.

Remember, understanding allergens like gluten enhances empathy and inclusivity. Whether you're gluten-conscious or simply curious, knowledge paves the way for a more thoughtful approach to our plates.
