Ethical Chickens are GLUTEN-FREE
(Wheat, Spelt, Rye, Kamut, Barley, Farro, Durum, Bulgar, Semolina, Triticale) Gluten is a protein. Gluten protein is a mixture of hundreds of distinctly related proteins (prolamins), however, it's primarily comprised of two different classes of proteins: gliadin and glutenin (soluble gliadins and the insoluble glutenins).
Many people suffer from intolerance to gluten and the symptoms of gluten intolerance include allergic reactions, depression, Joint pain, inflammation, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, bloat, diarrhea, constipation, gas, nausea, skin disorders, fatigue, brain fog, confusion, anxiety, abdominal pain, unwanted weight loss, or unwanted weight gain. NOTE: Wheat , barley and rye are not the only grains which contain gluten.
Wheat, rye and barley are widely used as livestock feeds and fodder. Most chicken feed contains wheat or barley. If people can have allergic reactions to gluten, can chickens? What about the end user who is cooking up this farm to table, certified organic chicken they bought at their local market? Can that person eventually develop an allergy to gluten?
