I really am sick and tired of people calling gluten-free a fad and claiming that only celiacs need to follow it. As I mentioned above, my youngest son is severely allergic to wheat. For those with wheat allergies, which are actually quite common, following a gluten-free diet is the only way to be sure that what they are eating is wheat-free.

As for me, since I live alone, buying bulk ingredients and mixing my own meusli is not feasible. I'm therefore stuck with the gluten-free meusli formula if I want my primary grain to be oats instead of wheat. It's partly a matter of taste (I've tried other meusli brands and they're awful) and partly that oats is more heart-healthy.
