Gluten-Free People Don't Know What Gluten Is

Watch Jimmy Kimmel ask people on the streets what gluten is

Find out what gluten is before cutting it out of your diet.

Would you cut something out of your diet without actually knowing what it is? Well, Jimmy Kimmel decided to conduct an experiment to see if health-conscious gluten-free eaters actually knew what they were avoiding. His suspicions were hilariously confirmed in this clip.

In case you were wondering, gluten is comprised of two different proteins, gliadin and glutenin. It is found in the endosperm of wheat and affects the elasticity of dough, which then affects the finished texture of wheat products (explaining why pizza dough is chewy and delicious).

Now that you have the knowledge, check out this video clip and see if others do too.

Any one who truly needs to be gluten -free knows what it is we have to or we are sick constantly. Those who do it because they heard it was a weight lose diet don't are just screw things up for us who's lives depend on by gluten-free. I;d like to see Jimmy Kimmel ask people with Celiac disease what it is.
