"Eating gluten-free is not meant to be a diet craze," says Rhonda Kane, a registered dietitian and consumer safety officer at FDA. "It's a medical necessity for those who have celiac disease. There are no nutritional advantages for a person not sensitive to gluten to be on a gluten-free diet. Those who are not sensitive to gluten have more flexibility and can choose from a greater variety of foods to achieve a balanced diet."
