Why You Should Try Eating Gluten Free

Going gluten-free is becoming more and more popular. In many cases, people do it without knowing why they are eating gluten-free. At Pushkin’s Bakery in Sacramento, we provide the most delicious and best quality gluten-free baking and food there is. We do this not because it is popular or a fad, but because we believe in gluten-free food and in helping those who need it.

Gluten-free food is largely a response to those who suffer from Celiac disease. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease where the lining of the lower intestinal tract is damaged and cannot absorb nutrients from food that is eaten. The cause of the damage is a reaction to gluten. What makes this disease so sensitive is that even one spore of gluten can set off a reaction that kills the cilia of the intestines and can lead to undernourishment and other diseases.

It is often thought that the genetic modification of wheat in the food industry has led to an outbreak of Celiac disease and gluten-intolerance. Very much like those with a milk allergy, being gluten intolerant can lead to severe stomach pains. It is hard to find food that does not have wheat or other types of gluten in them, though recently with the surge of corn products this has been easier.

There is a better way than mass consuming corn products (also genetically engineered and are difficult to digest) and that is to go gluten-free. This healthy alternative for those with Celiac disease and gluten-intolerance can not only provide food where there previously was not any, but it can also be incredibly delicious.

At Pushkin’s Bakery, we provide the best and most delicious gluten-free foods for all of those who are Celiac, gluten-intolerant, or simply want delicious food. Come in to our convenient location in Sacramento and experience the joy of our food for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
