Gluten, a composite of two proteins: gliadin and glutenin is primarily found in four grains, namely, wheat, barley, rye, and triticale. Its main purpose is to give the dough its elasticity, providing a chewy texture, improved taste and retaining the product’s shape.  Gluten has a lot of beneficial functions, however, is not suitable for all consumers, as it may result in various health-related issues such as gastrointestinal and systemic symptoms including celiac disease (CD), non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), gluten ataxia, dermatitis herpetiformis (DH), and wheat allergy which can have an adverse effect often leading to abdominal bloating, gas, diarrhea, and vomiting, migraine headaches, inflammation in small intestines, and joint pain.
