Problems with industry

Problems with industry

  • A problem that is occurring with this fad diet is producers are trying to satisfy all customers

  • In doing so they are trying to come up with as many “gluten-free” products as possible

  • The only problem is that in order to take this gluten out something has to be added in (i.e. fat) to make the product better.

  • To avoid over consumption to fat a person on the gluten free diet should go about making their foods from fresh ingredients and avoid such products.


Problems with nutrients

Problems with nutrients

  • People on this diet may have trouble with getting the right nutrients

  • Since they have to avoid pretty much all enriched grains they tend to lose out on nutrients such as iron, fiber, calcium, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and folate
