...we'd all cast nets.
I recently read that one study decided that non-Celiac gluten intolerance is a psycho-somatic thing. That anyone who said they couldn't tolerate gluten-containing food couldn't tell the difference in gluten and gluten-free products.
Lots of them can't.
I'm not one of them. I'm not gluten-intolerant. I can eat rye just fine. It's wheat that's the problem. All stages and forms.
No, it doesn't cause a standard histamine allergic response. If it did, I'd just take an antihistamine before eating whatever I wanted. Instead, I have gut cramps that start within ten minutes of eating something with wheat grass or wheat flour. Things like Gluten-Ease help some, but not me.
I wish it were otherwise.
I miss pizza. Real pizza, with real crust. Tortillas. I can do with or without bread, but the gluten free buns for hot dogs and hamburgers...they're awful, and fall apart with the application of any kind of condiment.
Gluten free pizza...yeah, it exists. Yeah, you can find some in some pizza places, but the frozen stuff is mostly just enough to be a disappointment.
Gluten-free tortillas are either horrible in texture, fall apart, or they just don't taste right.
I wish it were psychosomatic. The fact that I am willing to eat this stuff to not have to deal with the after-effects of eating the things I miss eating should prove that it's not.
