Gluten Free products seem to be the latest fad with everything being labelled Gluten Free.
More and more groceries and health food stores stock gluten-free products. That’s good news for people with celiac disease, who for health reasons should not eat wheat with gluten.
But experts estimate that only about 1% of Americans have celiac disease. The condition, caused by an abnormal immune response to gluten, can damage the lining of the small intestine. That, in turn, can prevent important nutrients from being absorbed.
For people with celiac disease, a gluten-free diet is essential. But for others, unless people are very careful, a gluten-free diet can lack vitamins, minerals, and fibre.
99% of people do not have celiac disease, or even gluten intolerance.
Wasabia japonica is naturally Gluten Free
Note that here we are talking about the plant Wasabia japonica and not the product called Wasabi which is commonly made from a mixture of mustard, horseradish and other fillers, such as artificial colourings and flavours.
Why most wasabi in the stores is not gluten free?
This is because most products labelled “wasabi” in the stores do not contain any Wasabia japonica at all, but is made up from a number of other ingredients. Some of these ingredients are shown on the label, but not always all of them. For this reason you can never be sure with these products what you might be consuming.
