Benefits of a Gluten-Free Diet
For those with celiac disease and other gluten sensitivities, a gluten-free diet is a necessary part of living with their condition. Removing gluten from their diet will help stop the often painful symptoms and help prevent further damage to intestinal linings.
Most importantly, it helps people with celiac disease and other gluten sensitivities live a more normal, active life. In the past, one drawback to gluten-free products has been the taste. But with the introduction of Expandex® modified tapioca starch, gluten-free food can have the texture and appearance that is similar to wheat-based foods, so those on a gluten-free diet can enjoy the taste of food again.
*Expandex® modified tapioca starch does not contain gluten from wheat, oats, rye or barley.
