Ten reasons to NEVER eat gluten-free processed foods

. It saddens me: As popular as the Wheat Belly books and lifestyle have been, there are still millions of people who say things like “Oh, that Wheat Belly thing is just about being gluten-free.” They couldn’t be more wrong and have clearly not read any of the books. Yes, you can be gluten-free and consume foods that naturally have no gluten, gliadin, wheat germ agglutinin, amylopectin A, phytates, and the rest of the toxic components contained in wheat and related grains. You can eat apples, bacon, eggs, and salmon that are naturally gluten-free. You can drink water or tea that is gluten-free. No problems here. But turn to the thousands of processed gluten-free foods made with cornstarch, rice flour, tapioca starch, and potato starch and all sorts of awful things happen—despite the double-digit growth of this industry that has swelled to many billions of dollars per year. You won’t, of course, hear any of this from companies like Udi’s and Schar who make a lot of money selling their products. And it doesn’t help that there are dozens of cookbooks written by authors who have no understanding of the damaging message they are propagating. So what happens when you are misled into thinking that processed gluten-free foods are healthy replacements for wheat and grains? Here are 10 reasons: Gluten-free foods raise blood sugar higher than all other foods—Higher than wheat, higher than sugar, higher than candy bars or jelly beans. Just ...

Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the reproducibility and construct validity of the Madras Diabetes Research Foundation FFQ (MDRF-FFQ) with biomarkers for its use in epidemiological settings in India. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: The MDRF-FFQ was administered to 500 participants representing rural and urban areas of 10 Indian states, twice at an interval of 12 months. Reproducibility was assessed using intra cluster correlation coefficients (ICC). Construct validity of carbohydrate and fat intake was assessed using baseline serum lipids by regression analysis. RESULTS: Reproducibility as measu...

This study aimed to evaluate the association between both LBW and intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) with IGT in adolescents. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: Total of 536 subjects from Tanjungsari Cohort Study were included in this study. Subjects were in their early adolescence age (12-14 years). Anthropometric data were collected and IGT was determined by using 2- hour postprandial plasma glucose level, then it was assessed based on their birth weight and intrauterine nutritional status. RESULTS: Subjects with LBW history were shorter, had lower body weight and body mass index (p

Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The aims of this study is to explore the acute effect of consuming dinner at different timing on postprandial glucose and hormone in patients with type 2 diabetes. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: Eight patients (age 70.8±1.9 years, HbA1c 7.6±0.6 %, BMI 23.3±3.2, mean±SD) were randomly assigned in this crossover study. Patients consumed the test meals of dinner at 18:00 on the first day, and dinner at 21:00 or divided dinner (vegetable and rice at 18:00 and vegetable and the main dish at 21:00) on the second or third day. Postprandial glucose, insulin, ...

Abstract This critical review is intended to analyse the existing studies on the consumption patterns of sweetened condensed milk in the diet of young Indonesian children and its potential nutritional health consequences. Considering its limited nutritional value and high sugar content, sweetened condensed milk (SCM) should not be administered to young children (1-3 years old) with the goal of promoting their growth and development. However, such false practice has been reported in mostly urban studies among the underprivileged population. Conclusive scientific evidence is also still lacking regarding the health r...
