I can honestly tell you that being gluten free is a real pain. I can also tell you that there is a big difference between celiac and having an allergy to wheat. While I do not have the celiac marker, scratch testing revealed and confirmed my wheat and milk issues after the elimination diet I was on pointed in that direction.

Gluten free foods have their own issues, so I avoid these when I can. As an avid food ingredient label reader, I am amazed at what is actually in a lot of foods, and that casein (which is a milk protein product) and wheat can be found in a lot of things you’d hardly expect.

Is it all hype? Not for me, but then again, given the choice of being sick or following a special diet and feeling good is a no brainer.
