@gollum,
Gluten is fine unless you have an allergy. Are you allergic to wheat or have any sensitivity?

Do you have Celiac disease?

@Ragman,
No, not to my knowledge. I thought some people advise all people to avoid gluten.

I am gluten free. But, it is a genetic thing. I have never heard anyone suggest a gluten free diet for the general population.

That being said; in the past couple of years there has been a real surge of gluten free foods. It is now mainstream enough that we just found a gluten-free cake mix from Betty Crocker.

It is a lot easier keeping a gluten free diet now than it was ten years ago.
