gluten-free diet only recommended for the few

There have been many reports today highlighting the fad of serving gluten-free foods to children, as though gluten is a poison. It isn't, unless you have coeliac disease. More common is wheat intolerance, and people with this condition may have to rely on 'gluten free' flour, because 'wheat free' doesn't advertise! All flours and processed foods carry risks of elevated glycemic index, especially
