Eating gluten-free can be tough, especially if you don’t know how. Whether you’re just learning to navigate restaurants or trying to cook for a gluten-intolerant loved one, let’s face it, Hong Kong isn’t always the ideal place to lead a gluten-free lifestyle. Grocery options offering gluten-free items aren’t as bountiful as they are in the US, Oz and Europe and with the hectic lifestyle many of us lead, ordering out is as synonymous as walking past gluten-filled bakeries (they’re everywhere). Gluten intolerant consumers have to choose carefully to ensure their meals are safe to consumer, and believe it or not, one of the best resources happens deliver gluten-free goodness straight into your home.
Offering some much-needed convenience within the gluten-intolerant community, premium meal delivery service Eatology, renowned for their chef-driven, dietician-designed meals, has amped up their dedicated gluten-free menu. But what’s the deal with gluten? Is the same as carbohydrates? Often misconceived as a “health” trend or fad, it’s important break down what it really means to be gluten-intolerant or gluten-sensitive.
What is Gluten?
Gluten comes from the word “glue” in Latin, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley that helps foods (like pizza dough and pasta) keep their shape. Carbohydrates and gluten often go hand-in-hand, but it’s important to distinguish that carbs consist of sugar, while gluten is a group of proteins. Wheat-based flours are commonly found in carb-rich foods like baked goods and cereals but can also hide in other unassuming food products like soups, sauces, and salad dressings. Consuming them might be okay for the general population, but for others, it can be dangerous.
