For some time I have been on a more special diet due to my gluten intolerance, and there are not many gluten-free products on the market and that's why I had to look for recipes and reformulate them, so that my cake would come out as tasty as the one made from gluten flour.
What is gluten?
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, oats and other derived grains, which for some people with intolerance or celiac disease can give associated symptoms such as: vomiting, stomach pain, flatulence, diarrhea, weight loss, malabsorption of nutrients that can cause other associated diseases due to inflammation of the intestine etc.
Unfortunately, there is no drug treatment, only any trace of gluten is removed from the diet. For people with intolerance, this diet can last only a few years, they can return to the normal gluten diet, but for people with celiac disease, it is a diet that lasts a lifetime, this being an autoimmune disease that does not cure, and the most low doses of gluten can aggravate the disease and more.
Both, gluten intolerance and celiac disease are very difficult to detect by blood tests, a biopsy is collected from the stomach and intestine to see the specific category of the disease, plus other blood tests that may be negative but still the symptoms of the disease be present. Sometimes takes years to detect this disease that you may have from childhood and be able to learn about it only in adulthood.
If you ask me, I already have 2 years of "treatment" in which I no longer consume gluten and I can say that I would never go back to the diet I had before, because the way I feel now does not I would change nothing compared to how I felt when I consumed gluten, always tired, with anxiety, general malaise, headache, stomach pain, etc., many other symptoms that I would not want to have ever and which complicated my social life and work environment.
One recipe, my childhood favorite , I found this recipe on a Facebook group called "Prieteni Fara Gluten", I added a little more to the original quantities and it came out as tasty as a the cake made with the normal flour you know.
