What is Gluten?

Gluten is a general name for the proteins found in wheat (wheatberries, durum, emmer, semolina, spelt, farina, farro, graham, KAMUT® khorasan wheat and einkorn), rye, barley and triticale (a cross between wheat and rye).  Gluten helps foods maintain their shape, acting as a glue that holds food together.  Gluten can be found in many types of foods, even ones that would not be expected.
