Wheat Food Intolerance

Wheat Intolerance, Foods To Avoid

A wheat intolerance is defined by an elevated IgG antibody reaction to the protein found in wheat. This type of reaction can be caused by a lack of digestive enzymes required to properly digest wheat and can lead to inflammation among other negative symptoms.
