Many people have found that switching to a wheat-free or gluten-free diet improves health. In a society that subsidizes wheat production, many of the other healthy grains and seeds are ignored. For example, Kent Natural Foods Co-op carries Teff Flour, from a grain grown by American pioneers that is also popular in Africa.
Other gluten-free alternatives include Quinoa Flour, Amaranth Flour, and Brown Rice Flour. Corn Flour contains corn gluten, but is wheat-free. For those who avoid wheat, products made from Spelt and Kamut grains are available, but Spelt and Kamut do contain a gluten protein that is similar to wheat.
