So… What Are Gluten-free Products? 

So we’ve all heard of gluten-free and seen the free-from aisle in the supermarket, but what exactly does it mean for a product to be gluten-free? Gluten-free products are free from gluten-containing grains, including wheat, rye and barley. They must also be made on equipment that has not been contaminated with gluten. 

For a product to be recognised as gluten-free, it must be certified as such by the gluten-free Certification Organisation (GFCO). This independent body is dedicated to setting the highest standard in gluten-free food safety and guaranteeing the quality and integrity of gluten-free products. 

This means you can be sure that any gluten-free foods sold here at PlantX contains less than 20ppm (20 parts per million) of gluten - the recognised safe level for those following a gluten-free diet.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Gluten-free Products? 

There are many reasons why people choose to buy gluten-free food online. 

People with coeliac disease or gluten intolerance must avoid gluten in their diet to avoid health complications, while others may choose to avoid gluten for other health, wellness and lifestyle reasons. 

With so many fantastic gluten-free alternatives out there, opting for a gluten-free lifestyle has never been easier! 

So let’s take a look at some possible benefits of choosing gluten-free products! 

  • Digestive health: Many people choose to eat gluten-free because they experience bloating, diarrhoea or other uncomfortable digestive problems after eating gluten. According to studies, removing gluten from your diet may help to relieve these symptoms. If this is you, be sure to get a blood test to check for coeliac disease. 
  • Energy boost: Ever needed a nap after wolfing your way through a big bowl of pasta? Brain fog after bread? Some people find choosing gluten-free products helps them to maintain steadier energy levels and better focus! 
  • Weight loss: It is not uncommon to lose weight when following a gluten-free diet, because you may cut out a lot of high-calorie foods like baked goods, white bread and beer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Coeliac Disease?

Coeliac disease is an autoimmune disorder related to the consumption of gluten. If you have coeliac disease, your immune system attacks your own cells when you eat gluten. This causes damage to your small intestine so you are unable to absorb nutrients. Coeliac disease can cause a variety of symptoms, including diarrhoea, abdominal pain, fatigue and bloating.

Reliable gluten free products are super important for people with coeliac disease, helping them to eat a healthy balanced diet, without fear of gluten contamination. 

If you think you may have coeliac disease, you can ask your doctor to perform a series of tests to check. 

How Long Does It Take For Your Body To Adjust to a Gluten-Free Diet? 

If you decide that following a gluten-free diet is the right choice for your health, your symptoms should begin to improve within a few weeks. Many people report improvement of digestive health and the relief of brain fog early on in their gluten-free journey. However, it can take months and years for the damage to your small intestine to repair. 

You may feel very hungry during your first few weeks of going gluten-free, especially if your body hasn’t been absorbing food properly for a while. This will subside within a few weeks, but make sure you are eating plenty of filling whole grains (gluten-free, of course!), and nourishing plant proteins. 

Our diverse range of gluten-free food online is here to make your transition as easy and seamless as can be! 

Will Going Gluten-Free Help Me Lose Weight?

It is not unusual for people to lose weight when switching to a gluten-free diet. This is because you may cut out high calorie foods such as white bread, baked goods and beer. You might also think more carefully about your meals and choose healthier options - check out our gluten-free food shop for inspiration! 

If you have recently diagnosed coeliac disease, you may find that you gain weight after switching to gluten-free products as your body will be able to absorb nutrients again! 

Can I Drink Oatmilk If I’m Gluten-Free? 

The same rule applies to both oat milk and oats. Oats do not naturally contain gluten, but they are often contaminated with gluten due to processing methods. Search for gluten-free oat milk to find nourishing and creamy milk that’s guaranteed gluten-free.

There are a small number of people who still react to oats, even when they’re gluten-free. If this is you, try an alternative plant milk such as almond milk, soy milk or pea milk.
