  • I neither bake nor glute. :P
  • I thought most people did, but maybe I'm the only one. I love wheat flour, and I don't think it's unhealthy unless you are allergic. People ate bread for thousands of years before the gluten-free craze, yet the obesity problem has only gotten worse since the gluten free craze started.

      I think more people are becoming allergic. And to more than just gluten. And I also think the obesity problem was on the rise long before the gluten free craze. I haven't researched, but I think it started with the introduction of high fructose corn syrup in the '70's. I like my bread better with a little added gluten.

      It is true that more people are being diagnosed with gluten allergy, but the prevalence is something like one out of 200. HFCS is linked to obesity because people consume too much of it. When sugar was more expensive, people used less. Since HFCS is low quality, people are tempted to use more to achieve a pleasant result cooking with it, and because it is low cost, there is no financial incentive not to use a lot. For me, gluten makes a stronger bread, so, it's great in many instances when you knead a dough that will hold up well.

      The government is too involved in the sugar industry. They subsidize the farmers then want to turn around and tax the final product to pay for obesity related issues! And I was thinking more of the HFCS being substituted for sugar in colas and other fruit drinks. And quantity is a huge factor! Many people look at the serving size and laugh! Or don't look at all! I was like that before diabetes. I take it more seriously now. But even a diabetic can have a little.

      Have you ever added it to your veggie burgers?

      No, but that's an idea!
