Indians make what we call 'chapatis' (indian bread) - it is one of the best food available to us in India. What we do here is get the right wheat right from the farm and make wheat flour .
More info here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atta_flour
Indian generally consume almost 12-15 a day spead over three meals. One Indian bread may have around70-80 calories - around 4 gms of protein (depending on size). rest is carbs. After cooking the indian bread we apply some butter on it. that way its tastier and is complete food. I am sure some of you have tried this in indian restaurants in US or Europe.
Processing of wheat or its very fine grinding is not very good for the body and should be avoided.
Americans can buy wheat and do the grinding at home.
Regarding gluten senstivity or any other allergy - only a small % is perhaps affected by this. I know a colleague who suffer from wheat allergy and has replaces it with rice.
so in my view its not correct to conclude that getting off wheat is the way.
but i must agree to the fact that if the wheat itself is processed or hybrid, then it may not be good for the body in long term. wheat crop must be grown in its natural form.
