What is gluten-free and Why it matters
Due to several health demands of consumers, the gluten-containing rate in rice is a new subject of many disputes nowadays.
Definition of gluten
To answer the question “Is long grain rice gluten-free?”, people should know what gluten is. The name “gluten” derives from the Latin word for “glue”, which describes the sticky property when flour and water are mixed.
Gluten is a family of proteins often found in certain grains such as rye, barley, wheat and spelt.
As a result of its glue-like network, foods with gluten have a high level of consistency which gives them a chewy, delightful texture.
Who should follow a gluten- free diet?
According to an American survey, the number of people who can not tolerate any products containing gluten accounts for more than 30% of the population of this country. It means that there is a large number of people having a problem with gluten intolerance or celiac disease in our society nowadays.
Other disorders could also be detected such as gluten sensitivity or wheat allergy,… The best way to find out if you have one of these diseases is to contact your doctor. Some common methods to check for celiac disease:
- Genetic testing
- Small Intestinal Biopsy
In general, most people can consume gluten-containing foods, but they can be dangerous for people with gluten intolerance such as non-celiac gluten sensitivity or celiac disease.
Which type of rice is gluten- free?
Indeed, all kinds of rice are gluten- free, long grain, short grain, medium grain,… all included.
Nevertheless, rice nowadays after being processed with other products that contain gluten or being contaminated by appliances in a gluten- containing procedure, often consists of a certain amount of gluten in it.
So when you come to the grocery store or supermarket next time, try to choose a rice brand with a “ gluten-free” label on it.
