When you’re trying to avoid gluten, it seems to be everywhere, in every food you want to eat. This protein is found in wheat, rye, barley and some other grains, and many people have trouble digesting it. Signs of gluten intolerance include occasional gas and bloating, but GlutenEase™ is a digestive enzyme supplement that supports both gluten and casein (dairy protein) intolerance.* In this blog, you’ll get tips on living your best gluten-free life, plus all the info you need about GlutenEase™ enzymes for non-celiac gluten sensitivity.*

Why take digestive enzyme supplements?
Digestive enzymes (like those in GlutenEase™) are enzymes in your digestive system that help your body break down food into nutrients (and fuel). For many reasons, our bodies don’t always produce enough, which can impact digestion. Taking digestive enzyme supplements can help speed up your digestion, by giving your body what it needs to optimize it.*
Enzymes are present in the food we eat, but no diet is perfect all of the time. Processed foods don't contain enough enzymes to properly digest every meal every time. Plus, enzymes can be destroyed when food is heated, making it impossible to get all we need from diet alone. Age can also play a role, since enzyme production naturally declines as we get older. In addition, some foods don’t “sit well” for certain individuals, resulting in occasional digestive issues including uncomfortable and inconvenient gas, bloating and indigestion.*
GlutenEase™ is formulated to offer support for occasional issues associated with gluten intolerance.*
Benefits of GlutenEase™
The first step to feeling digestive happiness is knowing which foods don’t love you back. Gluten intolerance foods to avoid include anything made with wheat, rye, triticale and barley – or exposed to those ingredients during the cooking process. GlutenEase™ is formulated to break down gluten, a protein found in foods like breads, pastas and anything made with gluten-containing grains and/or flour.*
- Take daily with each meal, to enjoy the foods you love*
- Supports gluten and casein intolerance.*
- Includes additional enzymes to help digest the entire meal*
- Daily support for casein intolerance*
- Ideal for cross-contamination support*
7 Tips for Avoiding Gluten and Living Your Best Gluten-Free Life
It can feel like gluten is everywhere – but it is possible to stay gluten-free even when you’re eating away from home. While you might hear people say “glutens” or “gluten protein,” gluten is the general name for a group of proteins in certain grains. Here are some tips to help you avoid gluten cross-contamination and maintain your digestive happiness!*
- Know what’s naturally gluten-free. Cross-contamination aside, whole foods like meat, dairy, fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds are naturally free of gluten. Many grains, including corn, quinoa, buckwheat and oats are as well, but check the label due to potential contamination risks during processing and preparation.
- Cook at home. This might feel like a bummer, but if you cook your own food it’s easier to control what goes into each meal. Plus, you can read the labels more easily.
- Become a food label detective. Any food containing gluten-containing ingredients must be labeled as such in the US. If a product doesn’t have a “gluten-free” badge on the front of the package, turn it over and look at the ingredients list. You’ll see any gluten ingredients called out.
- Seek out gluten-free swaps at the supermarket. These days, you can find gluten-free products to replace everything from pretzels and croissants to pie crust and pizza dough. You no longer have to miss out on your favorite foods when you’re avoiding gluten.
- Know different names for wheat and products containing wheat. These can include durum, einkorn, spelt, kamut and emmer. Flours that contain gluten include enriched, all-purpose, semolina, graham, self-rising, pastry/cake, etc.
- Choose restaurants carefully. Eateries that make everything in-house (rather than using premade foods) can often create a gluten-free meal for you. However, it’s important to inquire about cross-contamination risks, such as using the same toasters and fryers for gluten-free and non-GF foods.
- Be prepared in case of accidental exposure. Keep a food journal so you can backtrack to see what you ate before symptoms began. And keep digestive enzymes close by, for these accidental happenings.
What's inside GlutenEase™?
Here’s a look at what’s inside each capsule of GlutenEase™.
GlutenEase™ includes DPP-IV, an enzyme that may be able to degrade dietary gluten that is accidentally consumed, and it is called DPP-IV or dipeptidyl peptidase IV. This is a form of protease that breaks down many of the common components found in a gluten protein. Proteases high in DPP-IV activity assist in digesting and utilizing gluten and casein containing foods.*
It also contains glucoamylase, which breaks down polysaccharides into easier-to-digest glucose units.*
Plus, it contains Amylase Thera-blend™. Amylases are enzymes that transform carbohydrates into sugar. Your body uses sugar (glucose) as energy. Without enough amylase enzymes, you could end up with undigested carbohydrates fermenting in your lower GI tract.
Finally, GlutenEase™ includes Protease Thera-blend™ for proteins. Proteases break down and separate proteins into their building blocks, or amino acids.
The formula is vegan and clean, with nothing artificial. The enzymes can help break down food in the stomach, assist with nutrient absorption in the small intestine and support immune and whole-body health in the microbiome.*
The Thera-blend Difference
What makes our digestive enzyme supplements different? We offer the most complete range of enzymes. We include some enzymes that are not found in lower-priced or lower-quality products. GlutenEase™ includes the powerful technology of Thera-blend™ to ensure all of our enzymes work throughout the digestive tract.*
Since your digestive tract has such a complex and multifaceted role, the pH (acidity or alkalinity) isn't consistent all the way through. For that reason, Enzymedica's Thera-blend technology makes sure that all of our enzymes thrive in all of the pH levels of the digestive tract.*
With Thera-blend, you get the benefit of enzymes that can help all along the way. They break down food in the stomach, assist with nutrient absorption in the small intestine and support immune and overall health in the microbiome.*
How do I use GlutenEase™?
Tuck a bottle of GlutenEase™ into your handbag, work bag or carry-on luggage – it’s easy to take and convenient for both at home and on the go. Take 1 capsule with each meal containing gluten or casein. More may be taken as needed. For maximum support, try GlutenEase™ Extra Strength, with extra strength gluten enzymes. GlutenEase™ can be taken daily with no side effects.
Consult with a physician prior to use if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medications or have a medical condition. This product is not intended to replace a gluten-free diet for individuals with celiac disease. (Symptoms of celiac disease can be similar to a food intolerance, so talk to your health-care professional! Don’t make assumptions about gluten intolerance symptoms.)
How can I choose a quality digestive enzyme supplement for gluten intolerance?
Use this table to compare the label to your needs if you're looking for a digestive enzyme supplement to aid with the breakdown of a particular nutrient or nutrients.
We make it easy by detailing which nutrients each type of enzyme can target and we also include enzymes to boost metabolism and the breakdown of an entire complete meal.
Enzymes are not weighed in metric units like milligrams or grams. They're also not measured like recipes, in dashes or cups. That is just not the way that digestive enzymes function! Enzymes instead are always measured according to their respective activity levels, utilizing a certain set of purity, quality and identity of food ingredients standards established by the internationally accepted Food Chemical Codex. As the industry leader in digestive enzymes for over 20 years, we know this – and we always follow the Codex. So you will see that no matter which of our products you take for your digestive health, there will always be a rating of each enzyme's activity levels. Look at any of our products, and you'll see the "Supplement Facts" label. We have nothing to hide, so we provide the various types and activity levels of each enzyme or combination, as well as the specific activities included with each one.
Regardless of the formula that you choose, it will contain Enzymedica's proprietary Thera-blend™ technology. That means that the enzymes will be guaranteed to work throughout the entire pH spectrum found along your GI tract. When other brands’ enzyme formulas may fall short or simply not work, our enzymes will be effective in almost all acidic or alkaline environments.
