Let’s take a look at why:
- Processed and packaged food is not healthy. One cannot expect to achieve or maintain good health eating unhealthy foods (I know, this should be a no brainer).
- Many over the counter packaged foods contain cross contamination of gluten
- Many “gluten free” products contain other types of grain based glutens that have been shown to cause similar damage in those with gluten sensitivity (learn more about this here).
- Most processed “gluten free” products contain genetically modified grains, high amounts of sugar, preservatives, chemicals, and are devoid of any significant nutritional value.
