Gluten Intolerance

Gluten Intolerance

Gluten intolerance test Brisbane

Gluten intolerance or sensitivity is a condition where the body reacts to the ingestion of gluten. There is a lot of conflicting information in the media about gluten intolerance and 'non-coeliac gluten sensitivity'. We encourage our clients to come to the clinic and receive specific gluten intolerance testing and an individual diagnosis from our natural health Therapists rather than self-diagnosing.

What is gluten?

Gluten is a protein found in grains such as wheat, barley, triticale, rye and oats. The protein provides the elasticity in products made with these grains such as bread and pastries helping them rise and adding a chewy texture.

Gluten is found in any product made with wheat, barley, rye, triticale or oats. Often these products are very obvious but sometimes they can be quite hidden and unexpected.

Examples of foods containing gluten:

  • bread, rolls, pizza base, Turkish, flatbread such as tortillas, lavash, mountain bread, pita and wraps
  • cereals, porridge
  • cakes, pastries, biscuits, sweet buns, slice, doughnuts, muffins, tarts
  • pasta, noodles, cous cous, semolina
  • crumbed or battered food
  • processed meats, small goods such as ham, some sausages
  • pre-made soups, condiments, sauces, gravy
  • some lollies, chips and liquorice
  • drinks such as beer
