The benefits of gluten-free desserts for people with gluten intolerance or celiac disease include improved digestion, fewer incidents of stomach upset, gas, diarrhea and constipation, according to SFGate. Gluten-free desserts also improve brain function and energy levels. Eczema and other skin conditions may also improve.
People unsure if they have gluten intolerance can take blood tests or eliminate gluten from their diets for a week to see if their health improves, according to Oprah Health & Wellness. Gluten-free desserts are one way to eliminate gluten, and foods such as rice, oats, corn and eggs are fine. Flour derived from chickpeas, nuts and tapioca are fine as well.
