Jimmy Kimmel Asks “What is Gluten?”
When it comes to nutrition and diets, our society is so reductionistic about what’s “good” and what’s “bad” that we sometimes lose context for the reasons and science behind our choices. Gluten is a classic example of this, and Jimmy Kimmel does a hilarious job of pointing this out in a recent video where he randomly asks people who subscribe to a gluten-free diet to define gluten.
To save you the same awkward fate, gluten is:
"A general name for the proteins found in wheat (durum, emmer, spelt, farina, farro, KAMUT® khorasan wheat and einkorn), rye, barley and triticale."
