Do you know these 124 Wheat and Gluten Sources and Alternate Names?

I’m sharing them to help you understand more about what wheat and gluten is/is called and where you might find it.

When it comes to wheat and gluten, there are so many things to know, but one thing people always ask me is, “Is this gluten?”

I have been 100% wheat and gluten free since June 20, 2010.

Even if you do not have Celiac Disease, chances are that if you have IBS or IBD, you are sensitive to wheat and/or gluten.

Furthermore, gluten’s symptoms can be found outside the gut as well.

I put wheat and gluten together, but you should know that they are not the same thing.

Wheat is a grain. Gluten is a protein.

If something says “gluten free,” then it’s always “wheat free.”

If something says “wheat free,” it’s not necessarily “gluten free.”

It can all seem very confusing, which is why I put together this list of 124 wheat and gluten sources and alternate names.

I have 8+ lists like this (for different foods) in A Gutsy Girl’s Bible: a 21-day approach to healing the gut.

For today, perhaps this is just the list you’ve been looking for!
