While most people can consume products that contain gluten without hesitation and a second thought, some people suffer from gluten intolerance and should therefore, depending on the severity of the intolerance, eat completely gluten-free or at least have as little gluten as possible. And, of course, those affected simply want to enjoy a gluten-free breakfast.
What is gluten?
also known as gluten protein, is a mixture of proteins found in the seeds of
many cereals. Due to its “sticky” properties, gluten is used in the
food industry for processing flour. It makes flour in combination with water become
a sticky dough and gives baked goods, such as bread, their shape and bite.
found in wheat and other related grains such as:
Gluten can therefore be found in all foods containing the grains above. Typical foods containing gluten are flour, wheat starch, pasta, muesli, baked goods and much more.
An intolerance can often be recognized by various symptoms. Patients often suffer from abdominal pain, headaches, diarrhea and in some cases even muscle and limb pain. If a gluten intolerance is suspected, a specialist should be consulted who can determine the type of intolerance through various blood tests.
disease is the medical term for a severe gluten intolerance. It is a chronic
inflammation of the small intestine, which subsequently leads to damage of the
intestinal mucosa – especially in the duodenum.
suffering from celiac disease has to adhere to a strict gluten-free diet for the
rest of his or her life. If a completely gluten-free diet is not followed, the
intestinal villi may be destroyed, which can lead to serious sequelaes. But
even if celiac disease requires a major change in your diet, a gluten-free diet
with the right tips and tricks is not so difficult.
Although a wheat allergy is less dramatic than a celiac disease, all foods containing wheat should be avoided. In case of a wheat allergy, the body reacts allergic to wheat products and their proteins. The symptoms often appear on the skin or result in respiratory and digestive problems.
Wheat sensitivity is a non-allergic reaction of the body to wheat or gluten. The symptoms are similar to those of celiac disease or wheat allergy, but wheat or gluten do not have to be completely cut out of the diet. A slightly reduced wheat consumption can alleviate the symptoms.

gluten-free products are marked with the gluten-free seal. But before the seal
is awarded at all, the following steps must be followed:
First, the seed is checked for being
gluten-free and a suitable area is selected for cultivation. In addition, it is
taken care of that no gluten-containing cereals were cultivated as a previous
crop or that the areas were ploughed.
As the plants grow, the field is checked
several times to remove any gluten-containing grains that have “crept in”.
During the harvest itself, it is
important that the harvesters are cleaned very well beforehand.
In order to avoid subsequent mixing at
the transport routes, great attention is also paid to the storage of the
harvested oats. In logistics, for example, it must be ensured that the
gluten-free oats are only transported with well-cleaned hangers and that
special boxes are used for storage. The boxes are removed from storage using a
washed forklift truck which transports them onto a cleaned truck.
The processing itself may only take
place on a gluten-free system.
