Don't be fooled by your grocery store, gluten free, what's hiding in your food

Acid Reflux Symptoms | The Best Gluten Alternatives

Have you noticed more gluten-free products appearing on the shelves at your local grocery store lately? Awareness about gluten intolerance is growing, with good reason. Did you know that common problems like acid reflux symptoms can be caused by gluten intolerance?

Where is Gluten Hiding?

Gluten is found in foods like bread, pasta, pizza, cookies, cakes, muffins, cereal and anything made from the grains wheat, barley, rye and some oats.

If you are struggling with acid reflux symptoms that are related to gluten intolerance, choosing the right alternatives to your favorite gluten-filled foods is important.

Often, processed foods that are gluten free are missing the vital enzyme content that allows your body to properly digest and absorb the nutrients from those foods.

What to Look For

Here are some helpful guidelines for choosing gluten-free foods wisely:
• Buy minimally processed foods like brown rice and quinoa instead of pasta.
• Look for gluten free breads with ingredients you can pronounce, or better yet, make your own.
• Try nutrient-dense vegetables like yams, winter squash, and sweet potatoes instead of bread or pasta for side dishes with your meals.

Dr. Jonathan E. Aviv, on the Dr. Oz blog, agrees that food choices are important factors in handling acid reflux symptoms.
