Below is the answer to your selected question.  If you have questions that aren't answered here, please ask your question in the  "Question & Answer" forum.

Answer:

Foods that contain gluten are often rich sources of B vitamins, calcium, vitamin D, iron, zinc, and magnesium, among other minerals, and many wheat products are actually fortified with these vitamins. People with celiac disease have to find other sources for those vitamins. People on a gluten-free diet have to do the same.
