Healthy Living: Low-Fat & Gluten-Free


If it’s not one thing, it’s another. Doesn’t it feel that way sometimes? If you use dairy products, you may be using low-fat varieties to help keep your weight in check. But guess what? Many low-fat ice cream, sour cream, cottage cheese and buttermilk products contain modified food starch—and modified food starch contains gluten.

What’s a person to do? In this case, the best bet is to buy the full-fat dairy products and watch your calories elsewhere. But take heart: gluten-free eaters often avoid many of the typical “junk” foods that are high in calories, so you’re already ahead of the game in this respect.
