Jimmy Kimmel asks people if they know what gluten is...

#PROTIP ... If you're going to swear off of a food, other people are going to expect that you actually know what it is.

Apparently, Jimmy Kimmel got the impression gluten-free people didn't even know what gluten was. When he went out to the streets to figure it out, some of his suspicions were confirmed.

 

For what it's worth, gluten is composed of the gliadin and glutenin proteins and is responsible for the elasticity of dough. It's found in grains like wheat, barley, and rye, and sometimes oats due to cross-contamination. Research has found that one of the better-known forms of gluten intolerance, celiac disease, affects 1 in every 141 people in the United States.

Now that you have some knowledge, you can go check out what all those gluten-free people actually think it is.
