Why are gluten and casein a concern?
Because some individuals experience digestive discomfort when they eat foods with these proteins - even when they try to avoid obvious sources:
For some, hidden gluten and casein can be the cause of occasional gas, bloating, and indigestion. However, the right digestive enzymes can make a difference when trying to support a gluten free and casein free lifestyle.

Caution: While Gluten Defense™ will reduce the level of reactive gliadin and gluten proteins in a meal, it is advised that celiac disease sufferers continue with their normal gluten exclusion diet as even small amounts of gliadin can cause adverse reactions in the most sensitized individuals.
