YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED A GROWING SECTION IN YOUR GROCERY STORE LABELED GLUTEN FREE. BUT WHAT IS GLUTEN AND WHY DOES GLUTEN FREE SEEM TO BE BECOMING MORE COMMON? DAILY IOWAN TV’S JOE FISHER HAS ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS, AS WELL AS THE LEAD ON A LOCAL BUSINESS TRYING TO IMPROVE GLUTEN FREE OPTIONS.

Take VO (:00-:24)

GLUTEN IS A PROTEIN FOUND IN WHEAT, RYE, AND BARLEY. YOU CAN THINK OF IT AS THE STUFF THAT HELPS FOODS LIKE BREAD KEEP THEIR SHAPE. BUT FOR PEOPLE WITH A GLUTEN SENSITIVITY, THE BODY TREATS IT AS INVASIVE, AND TRIGGERS A DEFENSIVE RESPONSE TO IT.
