Are bao gluten free? I'm trying to stick to a low gluten diet to help me lose weight. What type of flour does bao use? Thanks!
Generally speaking no. The dough is usually made from a wheat flour which as you know contains gluten. If you make it at home I'm sure you could experiment with different types of flour that don't contain gluten.PS- As a nurse that has worked for a Gastroenterologist in the past, unless you have some sort of sensitivity/allergy to gluten you will likely not lose weight by simply eliminating it from your diet. In fact many gluten-free foods are higher in calories and sugar than the gluten containing versions. However, I know many people say that they just "feel better" not eating gluten.
