Diarrhea after eating?

Why do I have diarrhea after eating?

If you ask yourself, “Why do I have diarrhea after eating?”  It could be because you have celiac disease or because your body can’t tolerate gluten.   When Celiacs eat gluten one of the most common symptoms is diarrhea after eating.

What is Gluten?
Gluten is a protein found in most grains, wheat, rye, and barley. We eat many products every day that contain gluten, such as bread, cereal, cake, pastry, cookies, crackers, pizza and pasta.

Gluten is what makes dough stick together and give it the elasticity it needs, so it can stretch when the dough rises. When yeast is mixed with flour and water, the yeast starts to ferment. The fermentation process gives off carbon dioxide. When the carbon dioxide is released the dough rises forming the bread or other baked products.
