Fiber and the Gluten Free Diet

A gluten-free diet can contain enough fiber, but you will have to make an extra effort to choose foods that are good sources of fiber. Most Americans consume only half the recommended amounts of dietary fiber. Furthermore, in a typical American diet, grain foods (typically, yeast bread, ready-to-eat cereal, pasta, and flour) contribute over 25 percent of an adult's intake of fiber. Many people with celiac disease do not consume the recommended number of servings of grain foods. Processed grain foods that are included in a gluten-free diet may not be good sources of fiber—many gluten-free grain foods are made from refined flours and starches, which contain very little fiber.
