Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Gluten gives elasticity to the dough, helping it to “swell”, and retain its shape.A 10% of the population are intolerant to gluten and to 1% of the population serious problems can be created from eating gluten. Many diets have eliminated the consumption of gluten in order to achieve weight loss and longevity.
Lactose is a disaccharide sugar composed of galactose and glucose that is found in milk. The intestinal villi secrete the enzyme called lactase to digest lactose. This enzyme cleaves the lactose molecule into its two subunits, the simple sugars glucose and galactose, which can be absorbed. In people who are lactose intolerant, lactose is not broken down and provides food for gas-producing gut flora, which can lead to diarrhea, bloating, flatulence, and other gastrointestinal symptoms
