For celiac sufferers it has to do with the gluten protein within these grains. The body attacks the protein like a poison and as a result destroys the celia inside the intestine. I can't even where certain perfumes due to the alcohol contents.

I'd be happy to have any good gluten-free bread recipe.  There are one
