List of Food with Gluten and Modern Cereals

Saturday 5 th January 2013

In the article 10 Reasons to Avoid Gluten and Modern Cereals we explained why all modern cereals are dangerous. In this post you will find a list of all modern cereals that must be avoided.


When there’s a gluten intolerance or hypersensitivity means that gut flora is damaged, even if there isn’t a celiac disease, because it means that the person can’t digest well some food and even more, there’s a leaky gut so partially digested food cross intestine wall. In this page  you can find more information about this subject.

So if new food is introduced to replace gluten then the risk of appearing new intolerances is present. This is why I don’t advice to replace wheat by quinoa, buckwheat, tapioca or other new grains. It’s better to repair the intestine before introducing new food.

The cereals to avoid are: wheat, spelt, kamut, rye, barley, maize, sorghum, millet, oats.

Permitted cereals are: teff (in moderation), fonio, rice.

Permitted seeds are: quinoa, amaranth and buckwheat.
