Gluten refers to the proteins found in wheat endosperm (a type of tissue produced in seeds that’s ground to make flour). Gluten both nourishes plant embryos during germination and later affects the elasticity of dough, which in turn affects the chewiness of baked wheat products.  Gluten in found in many grains.  BUT, not all grain contain gluten.  See below for more details.

What is Dairy?

A dairy product is food produced from the milk of mammals.  According to Wikipedia:  “Milk is an emulsion or colloid of butterfat globules  within a water-based fluid that contains dissolved carbohydrates and protein aggregates with minerals.  Because it is produced as a food source for a neonate, all of its contents provide benefits to the growing young. The principal requirements of the neonate are energy (lipids, lactose, and protein), biosynthesis of non-essential amino acids supplied by proteins (essential amino acids and amino groups), essential fatty acids, vitamins and inorganic elements, and water.  Humans are the only mammal on earth that drink another mammal’s milk.  Read here to find out more about casein.  Read here about lactose intolerance.  It is estimated that 30 to 50 million Americans are lactose intolerant, including 75% of Native Americans and African Americans, and 90% of Asian Americans.
