Thank you for taking the time to submit your question about GMOs and gluten. While there is no genetically modified wheat currently commercialized anywhere in the world, and GMOs are not related to gluten, I appreciate this opportunity to share some resources where you can learn more about gluten and why it is such an important protein in wheat and other crops.
Gluten is a protein not just found in wheat, but also in other crops, including rye and barley, which helps foods like bread, maintain their shape. The Wheat Foods Council, a leading source of science-based information on wheat and wheat foods nutrition, has created a resource page where you can find several facts, studies and other information on gluten: http://wheatfoods.org/resources.
In addition, if you have concerns about gluten sensitivity, I encourage you to visit the Celiac Foundation’s website where you can find information on these issues: https://celiac.org/.
If you would like more information about wheat, the U.S. wheat industry or different classes and varieties of wheat, you may want to visit www.wheatworld.org, www.uswheat.org or Festival of Breads - wheat facts.
