So, what is γλουτένη?

"Γλουτένη" is a protein commonly found in grains such as wheat, barley, and rye. This ingredient provides elasticity to doughs and helps them rise when baked, making it a popular additive in many baked goods like bread, pasta, and cakes. However, individuals with celiac disease or gluten intolerance cannot consume gluten, as it can cause severe digestive problems. As a result, gluten-free alternatives have become increasingly popular, utilizing ingredients like rice flour, almond flour, and cornstarch to replicate the texture and flavor of traditional gluten-containing foods.
