    Why You Shouldn't Join the Gluten-Free Craze


    [​IMG]

    From specialized food aisles at supermarkets to separate menus at restaurants, the gluten-free craze is everywhere. And don't expect it to go away anytime soon-market research firm Mintel predicts the $10.5 billion dollar industry will skyrocket 48 percent to $15.6 billion in sales by 2016.

    This is good info. I have been doubting the whole "gluten-free" movement for quite some time.

    What are your thoughts on Kamut, Spelt, and Einkorn?

    Start talking ... Share what you have, and explain how we can acquire those ancient grains ... If there's no appreciable difference, relating to which is better or healthier, I'm open.

    Peace In,

    You can get Spelt at places like Whole Foods. I haven't tried the other two as of yet, but I know some brothers that swear by them. I will ask where they can be obtained and share their answers here.

    Okay, very good and much appreciated. Looking forward to reading the update ... Again, secrets to nutritional gains are important and hard to come by. Then there's accessibility and costs to factor in. Nevertheless, if the benefit is superior, compromises can be made:)
