Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Studies have shown that people who tend to skip breakfast are more likely to overeat at lunch and dinner. Bagels, sandwiches, pastries, eggs, potatoes, pancakes and waffles are common choices for breakfast but cold cereals have become very popular as well.
Cereals are easily found in grocery stores across the country but gluten free cereals are not always available. In some places, finding gluten free products can be very difficult, almost impossible. Luckily, the Internet has made gluten free shopping a lot easier these days but options are somehow still limited.
Gluten-free products are completely free of ingredients derived from gluten-containing cereals such as wheat, barley and rye, as well as the use of gluten as a food additive in the form of a flavoring, stabilizing or thickening agent. It is the only medically accepted treatment for celiac disease the related condition dermatitis herpetiformis, and wheat allergy.
Gluten free cereals used to lack in taste and nutritional value when they first entered the market a few years ago. Today, most gluten free products can taste just like any regular cereal, a very positive improvement. Despite this improvement in overall taste, most standard gluten-free products do not meet the recommended intake for fiber and some important vitamins and minerals such as niacin, folate, iron and calcium.
If you don’t like cereals, gluten free breakfast bars are a great alternative. Just like cereals, overall taste has significantly improved over the past years, making gluten free breakfast bars a great alternative for a healthy breakfast.
