New Buzz Word...Gluten Free

Have you noticed around the bay area that foods are now gluten free. Wall Street Journal had a great article earlier this week on gluten free products. Consumers are lead to believe that gluten free implies healthy, which it doesn't. Gluten free products usually has higher fat and calories compared to wheat.

Scientists cannot understand why people are allergic to wheat compared to decades past. It could be that wheat is processed differently now, which is causing people the grief, or that somehow people are born with the allergy.
