Gluten-free misconceptions

​​​​​​​Many people believe wheat-free foods offer benefits that are not supported by evidence.

There's an anti-wheat sentiment gripping Australia.


Magazines, newspapers and internet sites have all publicised the virtues of a "wheat-free diet" so that, now, many people think there must be strong evidence supporting it.

The proliferation of gluten-free products in supermarkets seems to confirm that wheat could be a public health problem. But is it?

The Australian Grains and Legumes Nutrition Council have advised me that 35% of Australian women are avoiding wheat and other grains in their quest for weight loss.
