What happens with gluten?

Each time we hear about more of the gluten, since in addition to persons suffering from celiac disease or allergy to this nutrient, many cases of others are coming to people who, despite not being allergic, that suffer from some degree of intolerance, which leads to the long run, many health problems.
Some nutritionists have commented that possibly this growing intolerance is due to adulteration of wheat seed to grow it in a crowded way.
Some of the most common symptoms of people who are intolerant to gluten are as follows:
  • Digestive problems, mainly bloating and flatulence.
  • Autoimmune diseases: arthritis, ulcerative colitis, Scleroderma, psoriasis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, diabetes.
  • Hormonal disorders such as polycystic ovarian syndrome or unexplained infertility.
  • Problems of skin like psoriasis, eczema, keratosis pilaris (rough skin due to excess of keratin, etc.).
  • Headaches or migraines.
  • Fatigue chronic and fibromyalgia.
  • Irritability, anxiety, depression.
  • Pain and swelling in the joints and fingers, knees or hips.

Gluten-free flours

People who can not eat gluten either want to reduce their intake, suggest cooking with flour of corn, cassava, chickpea or rice. In many cases we can even be surprised the new flavors that provide us with these ingredients, as in the example of this recipe.
If we use the rice flour, sometimes we can get more compact masses. If we want to give you more softness to this recipe we can mount the egg whites and mix with the dough in the end, gently.
Also we can bake the first minutes only with lower heat, then continue baking with the top and the bottom.

Benefits of blueberries

Cranberry is rich in vitamin A and C and to a lesser extent, in vitamin B. It also gives us minerals such as calcium, potassium, iron, phosphorus and magnesium.
Include properties for combat free radicals, which are the cause of the aging of our skin and our body.
Bilberry is also characterized by being very useful in natural treatments, to prevent urine infections and improve vision difficulty problems to see in the dark.
