Gluten is a group of proteins that are found in grains such as wheat and rye. Removing it from one’s diet can help to improve symptoms tied to celiac disease — an immune reaction to gluten consumption — as well as other medical issues.
Kourtney Kardashian, for instance, previously spoke about how she and her three children — Mason, Penelope and Reign — with ex Scott Disick have eliminated both gluten and dairy from their diets.
She has noticed a great positive change in behavior with her children when they stick to a gluten-free and dairy-free diet, as she and her family had muscle testing done, which showed they all have sensitivities to corn, gluten and dairy.
Jessica Alba suffers from many food-related allergies, which have ultimately resulted in her eliminating things such as gluten from her diet. She has also ensured that her children — Honor, Haven and Hayes — with husband Cash Warren abide by a similar diet.
As she’d grown older, she realized that a lot of what she’s allergic to is actually the chemicals, preservatives, pesticides, nitrates and sulfates in the foods themselves. Chemicals are sprayed on fruits and vegetables and that’s what Jessica Alba reacts to.
The New Girl alum Zooey Deschanel, suffers from both celiac disease and a soy allergy. During a 2009 appearance on Top Chef Masters, she tasked the contestants with creating a meal for her that was vegan and without gluten.
