Gluten-free food is a food that excludes gluten and all its composite and hybrids. This kind of food is preferred by people who have gluten-related disorders including coeliac disease (CD), gluten ataxia, non-coeliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), dermatitis herpetiformis (DH), and wheat allergy, as an effective treatment option. The gluten-free food should contain a good balance of nutrients such as macro and micro nutrients, which are sourced from meat, eggs, fish, rice, nuts, fruits, potatoes, and others.
