Halloween is around the corner and there will be candy.  But if you are gluten sensitive, what candy is safe for you to eat?  If you are suffering from gluten allergies or gluten sensitivity, you are not alone.  About six percent of the US population, an estimate of 18 million people, have gluten sensitivity based on reports from celiac centers.  Symptoms of gluten sensitivity include bloating, abdominal discomfort or pain, diarrhea, constipation, muscular disturbances, headaches, migraines, severe acne, fatigue, and bone or joint pain.  And none of those symptoms would be a fun way to spend your Halloween night.

For those of you who are not familiar with what gluten is, gluten is a protein found in dough and it’s what gives it elasticity to help it rise and shape. Gluten is found in wheat, rye, and barley.  Many foods we eat every day has gluten, including pasta, bread, noodles, and candy.

So what do you do if you have a sweet tooth but suffer from celiac disease or gluten sensitivity? Here is a list of gluten free candy for the next time you have a sweet tooth.
