Leer en españolIn recent years, a lot of people have said goodbye to foods with gluten, regardless of whether they suffer from celiac disease or not, because of all the negative information around this substance. Keep reading to find out more about the myths and facts of this protein so that you can choose wisely whether you hop on the gluten-free diet or not. What Is Gluten? Gluten is a protein that is contained in many kinds of cereal, like wheat, barley, and rye, as well as foods like pasta, bread, pizza, and soy sauce, among others. Those with celiac disease cannot eat food with gluten because it causes them swelling, intestinal damage, and other reactions in their bodies. Who Should Follow a Gluten-Free Diet? According to Harvard’s School of Medicine, those who must avoid food with gluten are the ones who suffer from celiac disease as it is fundamental to stay healthy.On the other hand, some people might not be allergic to gluten but are gluten intolerant. These people show symptoms like inflammation, diarrhea, and stomachaches when they eat food with this protein.Therefore, there are two groups of people who should stick to a gluten-free diet: Those with celiac disease and those who show pain or discomfort after eating food with gluten. In any case, it is best to seek medical advice to determine whether someone can eat gluten or not. What Is Wrong with Gluten?According to experts, gluten is not so bad, as there is no current scientific research that shows that eating gluten-free foods will improve someone’s health or will help prevent several diseases.Is It Wrong to Stop Eating Gluten?Although this kind of diet has multiple health benefits for certain people, not eating gluten could harm your health because these foods contain vitamins and minerals like iron and folic acid. In addition to this, experts from Harvard University assert that gluten-free food contains more sugar and fat and less fiber. Moreover, recent studies point out that those who follow gluten-free meal plans gain weight.The Health Benefits of Gluten Even though it has become a trend to eat gluten-free foods, which are more expensive, scientific studies have confirmed the health benefits of gluten. A study published in 2017, that included 100,000 people non-allergic to gluten, found no evidence that a diet with gluten was linked to heart diseases. On the contrary, the study asserts that those who do not eat food with gluten have a higher risk of heart diseases.On top of that, several studies have linked eating cereal to better health. Those who eat more whole grains are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes, strokes, and other heart diseases.Now that you know gluten is not as bad as it seems, and if you are sure that you suffer from celiac disease or are gluten-intolerant, then you should avoid this protein. In this case, it is best to seek expert advice and to keep a healthy diet rich in vegetables, fruits, protein, legumes, grains, nuts, and animal protein, as well as gluten-free foods, like quinoa, brown rice, amaranth, maize, oats, and buckwheat.

Leer en españolThree kings cake is a delicious pan dulce eaten in Mexico and other countries on January 6th in line with the celebrations for Día de Reyes, or the Epiphany. In Mexico, rosca de reyes is often paired with beverages like hot chocolate, atole, café de olla, or champurrado.At kiwilimón, we share with you the story of this traditional bread for, according to experts, there are similar varieties in countries like the United States, France, Switzerland, Spain, and Belgium.What Is the Meaning of the Three Kings Cake?The three kings cake is consumed on January 6th after Melchior, Caspar, and Balthazar bring gifts to children. This type of bread is often paired with hot drinks. The most exciting part of this tradition is that, once they slice the rosca de reyes, people may find a plastic figurine representing Baby Jesus.This fluffy bread tastes like vanilla or orange and is covered with butter crusts, fruit paste, figs, and maraschino cherries. However, nowadays there is a wide variety of three kings cake filled with cream cheese, chocolate, hazelnut chocolate cream, jam, and more.Regarding its meaning, this bread has an oval or round shape because “it means that the love of God has no end”, that is, it has no beginning and no end, according to information published by Mexico’s Agrifood and Fisheries Information Service.Inside the rosca de reyes, we can find several Baby Jesus plastic figurines, however, this represents one of the bloodiest episodes in the Bible: the massacre of children upon order of King Herod. Little children figurines are hidden in the bread as though they were being protected. According to tradition, once one or several people find a plastic figurine, they are obliged to prepare or buy tamales for Candlemas, which is celebrated on February 2nd. The Origins of the Three Kings CakeThis traditional bread is a classic and is one of the favorite celebrations among people of all ages, however, this tradition is not from Mexico. Rosca de reyes began being prepared in several European countries during the Middle Ages, but it arrived in Mexico after the Spanish colonization. More than 100 years later, there are all sorts of roscas de reyes.Keep reading to learn about two of the main precedents of the Mexican Three Kings Cake: France’s galette des rois and Spain's roscón de reyes.Galette des RoisThis delicious three kings cake was created in France during the 16th century. It is available since mid-December, but it is traditionally eaten on January 6th for the Epiphany or even during the whole month.Traditional galette des rois is prepared with puff pastry and is filled with frangipane, a sweet filling made with pastry cream and almond cream. The funniest part of this celebration is that the person who finds the porcelain figure hidden inside the galette des rois will wear a cardboard crown and will be named king or queen for a day. Roscón de ReyesThis Spanish version of the three kings cake is related to the Roman Saturnalia, a series of celebrations in honor of god Saturn. Back then, people prepared a special sweet bread. Later on, the Spanish, just like the French, began hiding a fava bean inside the roscón; the kid who finds it becomes king for one day.Contrary to the galette des rois, Spanish roscón de reyes is pretty similar to the rosca de reyes eaten in Mexico. Roscón de reyes is round and is garnished with candied fruits and is sometimes filled with cream or other sweet fillings.Translated by Miranda Perea

Leer en españolWhile carving ghoulish faces into bright orange pumpkins is a ubiquitous sign of the Halloween season, radish carving has been a popular Christmas tradition in Oaxaca, Mexico, for over a century. Noche de los rábanos, or Night of the Radishes, takes place on December 23 and it is the most anticipated Christmastime celebration in Oaxaca during the holidays.This whimsical tradition began as a way for vendors to feature produce in a unique and ingenious way to make their stalls stand out and boost sales. Back in 1897, Oaxaca Governor Francisco Vasconcelos organized the very first exhibition of carved radishes after admiring the festooned stalls packed with intricate radish trinkets on the day before Christmas Eve.Over time, the Night of the Radishes evolved into a competitive annual pre-Christmas festival where locals carve radishes into ephemeral works of art featuring traditional Nativity scenes, religious depictions, and everyday Oaxacan imagery. Even though radish carving is the most popular category, ornate scenes made from both totomoxtle (dried corn husks) and flor inmortal (preserved flowers) are featured in the festival as well.The radishes used in la noche de los rábanos are grown three months prior to the festival and are grown solely for carving. Each radish will measure up to 1.5 feet long and will weight around 7 pounds, unlike other radish varieties. Once the colossal radishes are ready to be harvested, men, women, and even children gather in the fields to collect up to fourteen tons of radishes that will end up being part of the Christmas Radish Wonderland display in Oaxaca’s main square on December 23.The radish carving tradition has carried on for over a century now and will continue as a popular Christmastime celebration in Oaxaca in the years to come. So, the next time you enjoy a traditional pozole topped with radish slices, remember that there is a little-known Christmas tradition where crimson-and-white carved radishes take over Oaxaca, Mexico!
