Food Fads-Organic Food and Gluten Free Food

Organic food

What is it all about?   I have read and heard a lot about organic food.  Well, allow me to explain it to you.  Organic food is grown by using methods of organic farming.  As per this method of farming, minimal amounts of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers are used.  Pesticides used are of organic nature.  Organic food is not even processed using artificial methods.  It is all done using natural methods without chemicals.

Pricing?  Coming to the price, yes it is more expensive than commercially processed food.  For instance, I had come across organic dal at a super market.  The price of the organic dal was higher than the normal dal you get.

Benefits of organic food-

  1. The food does not contain residues of harmful pesticides as synthetic chemicals are not used.  So you can be sure that no chemical pesticide enters your system.
  2. It is environment friendly too as it helps reduce pollution due to chemical pesticides.
  3. Organic food is fresher and tastes better.

Gluten free food

What is it all about?  There has been a lot of hullabaloo about this lately.  Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley, and crossbreeds of these grains.  Some people are allergic to gluten.  They suffer from celiac disease.  It is a disorder of the small intestine; due to the disorder the patient’s natural body defense system reacts to gluten by attacking the lining of the small intestine.  So the body is unable to absorb the nutrients from the food consumed.  Gluten free food is mainly for these people.

Pricing? Gluten free food is expensive and will not suit everyone’s pocket.

As per a study conducted it has been found that for those without celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, the diet is unnecessary.  It is a food craze. It has turned out to become a food fad eventually and so many people are into this kind of diet.

People suffering from celiac disease need to stick to the diet but normal people are into it just because they feel it is healthier. You can find gluten free stuff a lot these days (mainly breads).

There is a lack of awareness of Celiac disease in India.  It is not a worthy bet for the people without this disease because following gluten free diet means missing out on the vitamins and minerals that whole grains have to offer.
