Eating gluten-free food isn’t necessarily beneficial for your health – a new study has claimed.
The study published in the February issue of the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics compared the nutrient content and cost of regular and gluten-free food products in the UK.
Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire assessed the nutritional information and costs of the food products by collecting the data from manufacturer and supermarket websites.
While many people nowadays have begun following gluten-free diets or eating a reduced amount of food containing gluten this may not be a wise course of action.
For those who have medical conditions such as coeliac disease eating gluten-free foods is essential for their wellbeing.
However for others this isn’t the case.
