Information about wheat free diets
People often go wheat free because they are allergic to wheat. The allergy can be very severe and result in anaphylaxis if they consume it, even in small quantities. Unlike people with coeliac disease and non-coeliac gluten sensitivity, those that are allergic to wheat experience a fast onset of symptoms, anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours after consumption.
People that have a milder allergy can tolerate barley, rye or oats.
