Can I Eat Bread If I Can’t Process Gluten?

If you’re on a gluten-free diet, that means you can’t eat bread made with wheat flour. Since most bread in the US is made with wheat flour, you might think you can’t eat bread if you can’t process gluten. 

However, there’s good news. You can enjoy all kinds of gluten-free breads, and they’re just a couple of clicks away at Netrition. Here’s what to know about eating bread on a gluten-free diet.

Why Go Gluten-Free?

Gluten is a protein found in wheat. You might need to avoid gluten if you can’t process it. These are some reasons to avoid it.

  • Celiac disease
  • Gluten sensitivity
  • Gluten ataxia
  • Wheat allergy

Some people simply find that they feel better when they don’t eat wheat or gluten.

Foods With and Without Gluten

The foods that you can’t have when you can’t process gluten are the ones containing wheat or wheat flour. Most breads and pasta, as well as grains such as barley, couscous, and bulgur, are off limits.

If you’re looking for gluten-free grains, rice, quinoa, and corn are a few common ones. When thinking about other types of gluten-free flour that can be used in baking or that can be an ingredient in gluten-free breads that you want to buy, almond flour, soy flour, chickpea flour, and lentil flour are a few options.
