Gluten is a dietary protein found in the following grains: wheat, barley and rye – and many foods can contain these.
Foods that can contain these grains include pasta, cakes, breakfast cereals, breads, sauces and some ready meals.
In addition, most beers are made from barley, so may be contributing to a bloated gut.
Symptoms of coeliac disease come about after ingesting gluten. Pay attention to see if you suffer from the following:
