Let's tell you what it is:
Gluten (from Latin gluten, "glue") is a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grain species, including barleyand rye. It gives elasticity to dough, helping it to rise and to keep its shape, and often gives the final product a chewy texture. Gluten may also be found in some cosmetics or dermatological preparations.
Gluten is the composite of a gliadin and a glutelin, which is conjoined with starch in the endosperm of various grass-related grains. Theprolamin and glutelin from wheat (gliadin, which is alcohol-soluble, and glutenin, which is only soluble in dilute acids or alkalis) constitute about 80% of the protein contained in wheat seed. Being insoluble in water, they can be purified by washing away the associated starch. Worldwide, gluten is a source of protein, both in foods prepared directly from sources containing it, and as an additive to foods otherwise low in protein.

Blah Blah...What does it do to you is what you really want to know, right?

Look at this list of foods that are known to
have hidden gluten in them...
  • Bouillon cubes
  • Candy may be dusted with wheat flour
  • Canned soups
  • Cheese spreads & other processed cheese foods
  • Chocolate - Check if contains malt flavoring
  • Cold cuts, Wieners, Sausages - may have gluten due to cereal fillers
  • Dip mixes
  • Dry sauce mixes
  • Dry roasted nuts & honey roasted nuts
  • French fries or other fried foods in restaurants
  • Gravies - check out thickening agent and liquid base
  • Honey Baked Hams(TM) - based with wheat starch in coating
  • Some Ice Creams & Frozen Yogurts
  • Instant Teas & Coffees - cereal product may be included in formula
  • Lip Balms and lipsticks
  • Mayonnaise - check ingredients that are used as thickeners
  • Sour cream - May contain modified food starch
  • Some Toothpastes
  • Bouillon cubes
  • Candy may be dusted with wheat flour
  • Canned soups
Okay, so what's the big deal with gluten anyway?

Well, according to Dr.Peter Osbourne, and new emerging science, gluten is
responsible for a LOT of the disorders that people are experiencing

...such as bloating, poor immune systems, inability to lose the
last 5-15lbs, chronic fatigue, joint and muscle pain, and so on.

As it turns out the average diet today is like nine times higher in
gluten than it was just a decade or so ago.

In fact Peter went on to tell me that when he got his patients off of
gluten they reported...

- Better energy
- Enhanced weight loss
- Improved digestion
- No more chronic gas and bloating
- Reduced muscle and joint pain
- Hormone re-balancing

I figured you'd want to learn more about gluten and the damages it
can cause you from THE AUTHORITY on gluten himself.

If you’ve gone “gluten free” and have eliminated wheat, barley, and rye, out of your diet and still can’t seem to lose the unwanted weight and feel better and more energetic no matter how hard you try, then I have shocking news for you… you still may be taking in gluten in your diet and you don’t even know it.
Listen, if your doctor or nutritionist is telling you that it is safe to shop the gluten free aisle at the grocery store then they are unknowingly misleading you.
It’s not your fault.
See most ‘experts” don’t know the difference between traditional gluten free and TRUE gluten free. 
Most people who go traditional gluten free and are still experiencing health issues like bloating, fatigue and just can’t seem to lose the excess fat believe that their issues are unrelated to gluten. The hard truth is that they are still consuming foods that have hidden gluten that’s causing them to unnecessarily suffer.
Now...hold on...I'm not saying you need to go on a Gluten Free diet or that you are Gluten would need testing for that

Unfortunately traditional tests for gluten sensitivity are often incorrect!

Why? They only measure a fraction of how a person’s immune system can react to gluten.  Add to the problem that different grains contain different types of gluten.  Blood tests only measure the gluten found in wheat (gliadin).  The other problem is that people react to gluten in different ways.
If you want more info about getting a can find it here<=
At least now...if you had no idea what it was about you do...and if you would like to test you can...

I will see you all later

Have an awesome day
