A couple of years ago while dining in Lake George NY I ordered a gluten-free pizza that could have ruined my vacation.
Zucchini was listed as one of its toppings and when the pizza arrived, it was obvious that the zucchini slices had been breaded. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and started eating it, breaded zucchini and all, but had a sneaking suspicion that I shouldn’t be doing so. Sure enough, after a few bites and expressing my concern to the server, I found out that I was right: the chef had used gluten-free crust, but NOT gluten-free batter on the zucchini!
Disappointed and infuriated, I explained the gravity of the situation to the server. (While I am not gluten-allergic, I can experience symptoms the days after consuming gluten (an intolerance). There are millions who would have become very sick if they had eaten this pizza, I told her. She didn’t seem phased, but apologized and discounted that portion of the meal from the bill.
Fortunately, enzymes saved the day. Enzymes are specialized molecules that our bodies make to reduce the proteins, carbohydrates and fats we eat into their simplest components so they can be absorbed and utilized. I always carry supplementary digestive enzymes when eating out, to support digestion of larger meals and those prepared by someone else. But this time, ordinary enzymes wouldn’t do. I needed gluten-digesting enzymes. Yes, it turns out there is such a thing.
The enzyme G prolyl endopeptidase has been clinically shown to help break down residual gluten in meals. It’s ideal for individuals who know or fear that they are gluten-intolerant** and want to reduce their risk of stomach upset when ordering take out/restaurant food or during social visits. (This product is to be taken preventatively in case of accidental gluten exposure, NOT intentional consumption.)
If you suffer from bloating, gas, IBS or other debilitating symptoms after eating gluten-containing foods, wouldn’t it be nice to eat prepared meals with confidence this holiday season and beyond? You know how important it is to avoid this food ingredient, but as my story above shows, accidents happen.
Please Contact me to purchase gluten-digesting enzymes.
