Gluten-Free Foods Might Not Be Healthier After All
According to the 60 Million Consumers magazine, certain gluten-free foods might not be healthier than their non gluten-free counterparts, which might come as a shock to all those believing a gluten-free diet equals a healthier diet.
In other words, a 100g loaf of non gluten-free bread comes with 8.3g of protein, while a 100g loaf of gluten-free bread comes with a mere 2.6g of protein.
What’s more, certain gluten-free products contain additives, such as E464 and E330, to keep the elasticity of the dough, and these additives are anything but healthy. Researchers behind the study advise consumers not to blindly follow trends that provide little value for their money, and to carefully consider all the ingredients that their food contains.
