    Living with a Wheat Allergy

    Foods made with wheat are staples of the American diet; however, many people are allergic to proteins found in wheat, called gluten. If you are allergic to gluten strictly avoiding wheat and wheat products containing gluten is the only way to prevent a reaction, which can include stomach upset, eczema, hay fever, asthma, and even anaphylaxis. But, it is not always easy to avoid these foods since many unsuspecting products contain gluten.

    Always check the label ingredients before you use a product. Many processed foods, including ice cream and catsup, may contain wheat flour. In addition, check the label each time you use the product. Manufacturers occasionally change recipes, and a trigger food may be added to the new recipe. Many wheat products are now available "gluten free" and will say so on the label.

    Examples of wheat products and foods that may contain wheat include:

    Wheat Products
    Whole wheat or enriched flour
    High gluten flour
    High protein flour
    Bran
    Farina
    Graham flour
    Bulgur
    Durum
    Semolina
    Wheat malt
    Wheat starch
    Modified starch
    Starch

    Wheat-Containing Ingredients
    Gluten
    Gelatinized starch
    Hydrolyzed vegetable protein
    Vital gluten
    Wheat bran
    Wheat germ
    Wheat gluten
    Vegetable gum
    Vegetable starch

    Wheat-Containing Foods
    Many breads, cookies, cakes, and other baked goods
    Bread crumbs
    Crackers
    Many cereals
    Acker meal
    Couscous
    Cracker meal
    Pasta
    Spelt

    Substitutes for wheat include corn, potato, barley, oat, soy, and rice flours and arrowroot starch.

    Gluten doesn't necessarily mean just wheat though. Gluten intolerance includes barley, rye, spelt, and a few others. Watch for secondary ingredients to processed foods, like malt flavoring or the dreaded vaguery "food starch"
