From what I have read us folks with digestive problems can have damaged Villi usually from disease ,years of taking medication cause the inflammation that over time damage the Villi. Once the Villi is damaged it does not absorb nutrients or digest Gluten as well those undigested foods cause inflammation and aggravate the delicate lining of the intestines . This made sense to me since I have an inflammatory type of Crohns .
Inflammation turns into Stricture and other problems .
I found Gluten free bread at my local health food store in the refrigerator section its made from Millet. I also like the hot brown rice cereal its kinda like Cream of Wheat but its Cream of brown rice I make it with milk and sweeten with Agave. Walmart even had Gluten free bacon for those of you who like bacon. I make my own hash browns in the oven then freeze a huge batch have them ready to go in the morning with scrambled eggs.
OATS have now been listed as a NO NO for gluten free peeps.
ALL types of rice is gluten free ( thank God I am Hispanic and my DH is Japanese so we eat a lot of rice).
