5 things you didn't know about gluten

You may know that we're certifiably delicious ... You may not have known that we're Certified Gluten Free! What does that mean? It means that people diagnosed with Celiac disease can enjoy Tandoor Chef worry free!

Here are 5 things you might not know about the protein commonly found in wheat ... gluten!

Gluten may not be the only culprit in celiac disease! A recent study from researchers at Columbia University concluded that wheat proteins besides gluten may also trigger problematic symptoms in people with celiac disease.

What they say may not be 100% true. Chains like Pizza Hut and Domino's have started offering gluten-free options but because the pizzas are prepared in the same kitchens as those with gluten, they aren't considered to be safe for everyone with celiac disease due to cross-contamination.

Gluten-free doesn't always mean healthy. While gluten-free has
become somewhat synonymous with healthy, there are dozens of unhealthy gluten-free foods.

You still need to read the nutrition label! Simply cutting gluten doesn’t lead to automatic weight loss. Many of the products that are gluten-free have more calories in them. Take a read on the back of that box of cookies for the low down.
