I've been told that the wheat is altered and processed so different and that's why we're having so much wheat allergies. Is there any old fashion wheat being produced for baking bread????


Today’s wheat has the same genetic components as its ancient ancestors that were consumed by humans more than 8,000 years ago. While some modern wheat plants are shorter than their ancestors, wheat’s genetic makeup remains the same. Shorter plants are generally preferred because they utilize nutrients and water more efficiently to produce grain. 

People don’t get celiac disease simply because they eat wheat. There are a number of theories to explain the increased rates of celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. Researchers are learning more each day but the fact remains that you must have a specific gene to develop celiac disease.
