Keeping in line with our previous article on common misconceptions around Indian cuisine, we thought we’d take a moment to address gluten. For those with sensitivities or allergies, finding restaurants in Nashua that cater to dietary needs can be difficult. However, at India Palace, we understand that having gluten-free menu options is a must.
In this article, we’re taking a look at gluten and why authentic Indian food is an excellent option for those with sensitivities to gluten.
Understanding gluten and intolerances
While many smirk at those who are gluten-free, this group of proteins can cause chaos when the body is unable to break down the protein. The protein complex is found in wheats such as durum, semolina, spelt, rye, and barley. Often used as a binding substance in bread, pasta, and cereal, gluten sensitivities cause a variety of side effects to those with an intolerance. While many of these signs show right away, many others go unnoticed for years.
Celiac disease the most severe of any gluten intolerance. The disease triggers an immune response which damages the intestinal lining. However, other side effects range from severe headaches and bloating to anemia.
