So, what is glutine?

Glutine is a protein found in wheat and related grains, including barley and rye. It provides elasticity and structure to dough, allowing bread and other baked goods to rise and hold their shape. However, glutine can be problematic for people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, as it triggers an immune response that damages the lining of the small intestine. As a result, many people opt for gluten-free alternatives, which exclude glutine-containing ingredients. Despite its potential health drawbacks, glutine is an essential component of many popular foods and remains a staple in the diets of millions of people around the world.
