Frequently Asked Questions

What is gluten and is it bad for your health?

Gluten is name of the protein found in grains like wheat , rye, barley and triticale. Gluten is needed in these grains to provide structure and elasticity. Unless you have celiac disease, there is no need to eliminate gluten from your diet.


What is the difference between a Registered Dietitian (RD or RDN) and a non-credentialed nutritionist?

The words Dietitian and Nutrition can often be used interchangeably but they are not regulated in the same way. All registered dietitians can call themselves nutritionists but not all nutritionists can call themselves dietitians. This is why the Commission on Dietetic Registration has added "Nutritionist" to the RD credential, but it is not mandatory to use.
