    One other group you forgot to mention who might have trouble with gluten are people with Crohn's Disease which is similar to Celiac Disease except instead of damaging the villa it causes inflammation in your gut/small intestine. I know from my own experience that there may be times when gluten based foods can be a trigger especially in a flare up period.

    As someone who works in restaurant business. I HATE when people come in and say "i'm allergic to gluten" when they are just on a gluten free diet. It's a lot more work to go the extra steps to make something that doesn't have any cross contamination. Those who are legitimately allergic to gluten (or anything thing) the extra steps is worth it to make sure they have a good experience. If you want eat a certain way that is a personal choice that's all good. Just don't make it out as if it's a medical necessity.

    Gluten free is a fad. That said, there are people that do suffer from celiac disease that absolutely must avoid it, but guess what? Celiac disease came about with the invention/introduction of GMO grains that have had all the nutrition modified out of them in favor of ma$$ive yield$ (see what I did there, and what they did there?) Now the question remains: Is the gluten the inflammatory ingredient in wheat, rye and barley, or is it the remainder of the grain once you remove the gluten? I would argue it's the grain that's inflammatory, and NOT the gluten, as it is protein, and protein is not inflammatory. I eat a ketogenic diet, and grains are forbidden (as are all inflammatory foods/oils, sugars, starches--it is high in fat because fat isn't bad for you, sugars are because they trigger an insulin response, storing the sugars as fat, and fiber is unnecessary to the human diet), however, I do use vital wheat gluten for making bread (along with lupine flour and oat fiber, not to be confused with oat bran), and have no problems with inflammation.

    There are severe Gluten allergies that are not celiac disease. Celiac is Autoimmune like you mentioned but there are those with very severe allergies to Gluten which should be mentioned as well, the education of this is staggering in the public. There can be more than gastro reactions, I breakout in hives blisters and my asthma is triggered on top of severe Gastro symptoms. I have a genuine allergy not just a sensitivity. I loved that you did this video so well done, I wish it was a PSA .

    Just found this video. Thank you for the research. I am allergic to wheat (blood test) and have to eat gluten free. Taste struggle is intense. GF gives that mealy mouth feel where you cant clear your palate and it sticks to your teeth. Because I am allergic to wheat, many GF products are NOT wheat free. I avoid restaurants due to cross contamination, lack of menu items, and over dramatic eye rolls from restaurant staff. I am an avid home baker and found only one flour that comes close to wheat flour in taste = Sydney Flour by Orly the Baker (pastry chef whose husband has celiac). High recommend it for my CD and GF friends.

    If you have Celiac disease, sure, gluten free is exactly what you want. If you don't have Celiac disease? 99% of the time all you are doing is making the prices of glute-free things more expensive for the people who have Celiac disease. There has not been enough actual clinical trials for any other option about being Gluten-Free to be anything more than anecdotal or word of mouth. You, over there to the left, might find you have more energy, or your skin cleared up, or your heart spontaneously rejuvenated somehow, but that is JUST you. It's anecdotal. For all we know, you also changed what ketchup you use, and had an undiagnosed mild allergy to one of the spices in Brand A that's not in Brand B. Please note, I am NOT saying that going gluten-free is useless or meaningless. I'm only saying there is not enough controlled trials to discover if there's anything consistent and replicable to these anecdotes. Until there are such trials, I at least am happily munching on that wheat gluten.

    Celiac's disease and gluten sensitivity is like comparing a dairy allergy to lactose intolerance. If you're just sensitive/intolerant, you can sometimes ingest small quantities without any or serious reactions, and even if you did have larger quantities, your life wouldn't be at risk. When you've got an actual allergy, you will suffer very serious symptoms, possible anaphylaxis and maybe even death. Lactose intolerance is normal to develop as you age, so I'm glad that s byproduct of that is dairy free products being more readily available for the people with actual allergies. I'm sure there are many happy parents that are finally able to buy some good ice cream for their kids in stores for a much better price than 5 years ago.

    I follow a naturally gluten-free diet, I don't have celiacs disease but I'm allergic to wheat, rye and barley. I can eat small amounts of gluten-free oats once in a while. So I'm allergic to the protein of the grains, not the gluten. I can only eat grains that are naturally gluten-free and I feel like it makes my diet hard because a lot of gluten-free products have wheat starch in them :/

    I understand all the comments about fad diets (and how silly and/or harmful they can be), but Celiac's is not the only reason to go gluten-free. Gluten used to be a regular part of my diet, but then I developed a dermatitis and the only thing that helps (aside from corticosteroids) is avoiding gluten and dairy. For me it's not fun, I'm not trying to lose weight or be trendy (?). It means not being able to eat some of my favorite foods (pancakes? cheese?!) And I reserve the right to try my best at preventing the skin on my entire face and scalp from falling off in massive flakes (and avoiding scratching myself until I bleed as well). 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Gluten free is not for losing weight. Gluten sticks to the villi in your digestive tract and prevents them from absorbing much in the way of nutrients. That causes disorders and diseases, esp in the intestines.

    In my opinion, the problem is that people need to know what is the goal and the background of certain diet. In fact a "gluten-free" diet may help you to lose weight but how? Flour contains ~95% of sugar a typical bread contains around 70g of sugar per 100g. So if flour is your main source of your carbohydrates, the gluten-free diet may actually helps you. In my case (vegetarian), that was the main reason, I started the keto diet (without meat) and found out that, in fact, I ate a lot of sugar (bread, sweetened drinks etc.). So avoiding flour (not gluten-free) helped me to reduce sugar and I was able to lose almost 40kg. Even after that I am avoiding flour as much as I can, just because I know what impact (in my case) it has. So just to wrap it up - if you don't eat much bread and you are on "gluten-free" diet you are not lowering your sugar consumption that much but you simply eat more fat and calories and actually gaining weight. These influncer-type virals are often almost dangerous in some cases, especially for the younger audience, and these people (not all of them) often don't know what they're propagating. I want to thank you for your work and effort to debunk these information! I am happy that your channel became so popular!

    Earlier, I made bread for the first time but either didn’t use enough yeast or had it rise too coldly, and it made something with a hard exterior but that was still easy to bite. Do you think I would be able to achieve the same thing by taking the yeast out of the equation? The ingredients I used were milk, sugar, yeast, bread flour, salt, egg, and later with butter kneaded in.
