Ultimate Guide to Vegan Gluten-Free Friendly Foods 2023
Gluten-free diets are becoming more popular in all areas of the food industry. Some people are starting to become more aware of the effects of gluten on the human body, and how it can affect their quality of life.
This has opened up many new food options for people who are sensitive or allergic to gluten, and the vegan food industry is sure not to disregard the need for vegan and GF goodies.
This guide will help you find some of the best gluten-free and vegan-friendly foods in Australia.
What is gluten and where does it come from?
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten is found in many foods, including bread, pizza, pasta, cereals, baked goods, and even beer. It is known for giving bread its stretchy, chewy texture.
Why are there food products made without gluten?
Around 1% of the global population suffers from gluten intolerance. This intolerance can affect the quality of life for those who consume it, so it’s best for them to avoid gluten altogether. This is why you will see a lot of foods labelled as “gluten-free” or “GF”.
Can anyone eat gluten-free?
More and more people are choosing to avoid gluten, whether they have a medical reason or not. It helps them feel their best and it can also help them lose weight. However, it’s important to mention that not all foods labelled gluten-free are healthy.
Does vegan mean gluten-free?
The short answer is no, veganism and gluten-free living are two distinct lifestyles. However, the growing popularity of plant-based diets has led to an abundance of plant-based foods that are naturally gluten-free. Therefore, someone who is following a vegan diet can still enjoy many gluten-free foods.
