Question: Which Grains Have Gluten?
Answer: Gluten is found in all grains. The gluten in rice and corn is safe for celiac patients, but the gluten in wheat, barley, and rye is not.

In people with celiac disease, gluten molecules in wheat, barley and rye trigger an autoimmune response that results in damage to the villi in the small intestine, along with other related problems.
