Dietitians find nutritional flaws in gluten-free and other trendy diets

Digestive Health SmartBrief | Dec 12, 2014

Trendy diets -- such as low-fat, low-carb and raw foods -- include elements of nutritional truth but have serious flaws, say registered dietitians Heather Mangieri and Keri Glassman. A gluten-free diet is not necessarily healthy because packaged gluten-free foods tend to have added sugars and calories and may eliminate needed nutrients, Mangieri says. New study data also suggest people with nonceliac gluten sensitivity may be reacting not to gluten but to FODMAPs, a class of carbohydrates that can cause GI distress. Men's Journal online (12/09)
