Confused 5pts So gluten gums up our GI tract but then she fries up some seitan...which is made from gluten. I'm confused. Sabali Mpozi 5pts I use things like fried seitan only as transitional foods.

This article is simply a snap shot of what was discussed during the class, there was a lot more than just this.Thank you "Confused" for bring this up. I think it's important that people know why it was used.
