In brief: Gluten free is OK

There are no dietary requirements for gluten, a protein found in wheat which many are intolerant or sensitive to.
Many people feel better when avoiding foods containing gluten, even in absence of celiac disease. Foods high in gluten are often high in carbohydrates and have a high glycemic index, which can lead to high Insulin levels and make you feel sluggish.
