Program Description:
We’ve been bombarded for years about the wonders of sugar-free or fat-free products, but what’s the big deal about gluten free? The gluten free market will hit $15 billion by the end of next year, double what it was five years before. It makes you wonder: Is gluten bad for you? Unless you have a certain medical condition, probably not. We’ll explain what gluten is, why it’s in so much of what we eat and who needs to worry about it.
