Gluten- Free Orange Spiced Mini Cake
Welcome to Tizi Bar where we will be delving into healthy eating while sharing pretty awesome recipes! According to Havard Health, gluten is a general name for the proteins found in wheat, rye, and barley (the big three). It acts as the glue that holds these foods together and it's common in foods such as bread, pasta, pizza and cereal; however, it doesn't provide any essential nutrients. Most people who opt for gluten free is because they have celiac disease or are 'gluten sensitive', while others simply believe its a healthier option.
In case you are not aware, someone who has celiac disease cannot take gluten because it triggers an immune response that damages the lining of the small intestine. This can interfere with the absorption of nutrients from food, cause a host of symptoms, and lead to other problems like osteoporosis, infertility, nerve damage, and seizures. Yes... It can be that bad. However, if you are gluten sensitive, you will have symptoms (including bloating, diarrhoea or crampy abdominal pain) whenever you eat foods that contain gluten. So we are here to show you an example of a gluten free snack and more will come in the future.
