30 Potentially Damaging Carbohydrate Myths

2. All carbohydrate foods come with gluten

Every couple of years, there is a new thing in food that people are told to avoid. One of the latest ones being gluten. When these bits of misinformation spread, you have tons of people axing out large food groups simply because someone told someone, who heard something that said that gluten was bad for you.

Granted, some people are gluten intolerant, and you do have people with celiac disease that cannot eat gluten at all, but these people certainly do not make up the whole population. This gluten craze has made far too many people avoid carbohydrates altogether. While a lot of carbohydrate-rich foods do contain gluten, this is not the rule. Some foods are high in carbs that do not contain gluten.
