Whether you need a mid-afternoon pick-me-up in the office or something to munch on after a workout, snacking can help us stay satisfied between meals.
Unfortunately, for those who have a gluten intolerance or coeliac disease, it is not always easy to find delicious gluten-free snacks. Luckily, here at Holland and Barrett, we have a wide range of gluten-free snacks so that you can snack safely. From savoury to sweet, we have something for everyone.
What is gluten?
Gluten is the term used for proteins found in grains like wheat, rye, and barley. These proteins help foods maintain their shape and soft, almost chewy texture. Many foods naturally contain gluten, like bread and pasta, whilst some foods have gluten containing ingredients added to them for consistency.
Some people, like those with coeliac disease or gluten intolerance, struggle to digest gluten and generally experience uncomfortable symptoms, like bloating and abdominal discomfort. Eliminating gluten from your diet & consuming gluten-free foods instead can be really beneficial for those who experience these.
