A gluten-free diet excludes all foods that contain gluten (anything made from wheat, rye or barley grains). The most common gluten-containing foods are ordinary bread, rolls, cakes, biscuits, and any other product made from ordinary flour.
The good news is that there are lots of gluten-free products available, such as: flour, bread mixes, biscuits and pasta. (In New Zealand, some of these gluten-free products are available on prescription for people who have Coeliac Disease).
