I'll get there.

Hi, I'm Tracy Lockwood Beckerman,

a registered dietitian in New York City

and it's my job to help you figure out what to eat and why.

Let's talk gluten.

Is it horrible for you?


Is it okay for you?


How do you know if you're gluten intolerant,

gluten sensitive or gluten friendly?

All of these answers and more

will be revealed on today's episode of You Versus Food.

Gluten is a mixture of proteins stored in wheat

responsible for that elastic, bouncy texture

of that warm, doughy bagel

or that slab of Italian sourdough.

Think of gluten as the glue

that holds together your favorite wheat-based treats.
