Bulking and Cutting for Gluten Free Athletes and Bodybuilders
Have you ever wonder what helps to make breads and breads so fluffy and cookies so soft? You can thank gluten. Gluten is the laymen's term for proteins found in wheat, rye, barley, and the wheat-rye hybrid called triticale.

Products containing wheat may also list wheatberries, durum, emmer, semolina, spelt, farina, farro, graham, khorasan wheat, or einkorn in the ingredient label. [1] While you don't see it on the list, those with Celiac or gluten sensitivity may also have an adverse reaction to rolled or quick-cook oats.
