The Problem of Gluten and Casein in Foods

For many people, gluten digestion can be very challenging. A significant portion of the population suffers from gluten intolerance, while some struggle with more severe conditions. Celiac disease is a chronic digestive disorder characterized by an extreme sensitivity and allergic reaction to foods containing gluten, requiring individuals with the disease to follow a strict dieting regiment devoid of gluten-containing products. Disorders such as ADD/ADHD and autism have also been linked to improper digestion of gluten and casein, theorizing that their associated cognitive and social behaviors may be influenced by these proteins.

As a starch-protein found in most grains, gluten is present in many processed foods today. Foods with hidden gluten can be a serious problem for unsuspecting and discerning gluten-free dieters. Similarly, casein- a protein found in most dairy products- can be difficult to digest and cause discomfort. Gluten and casein intolerances have been primarily treated through maintaining a Gluten-free and/or casein-free (GFCF) diet, however the trace amounts of these proteins that can be found in many foods can make avoidance nearly impossible, allowing problems to persist.

The underlying issue with gluten and casein metabolism in those with intolerance is that the body’s inherent enzymes do not have the capacity to digest the offending substances. The incomplete digestion of these proteins causes inflammation and associated digestive discomforts, as well as damages the villi of the intestinal tract. The villi of the small intestine are the site of most nutrient absorption and any damage to them can result in malabsorption and nutrient deficiencies. Scientists theorize that humans still have not caught up genetically with the introduction of grains to the diet that began nearly 10,000 years ago. Fortunately, advances in biotechnology are striving to bridge that gap.

Introducing Gluten Relief by AST Enzymes

Gluten Relief is specially formulated to address gluten, casein, and other offending proteins in today’s modern foods. By far, the most important enzyme in our formula is DPP-IV (dipeptidyl peptidase IV), an enzyme complex that specifically breaks down gluten and casein. Our formula also contains five additional proteases, each with specific and unique digesting activity that compliments DPP-IV for complete protein degradation, as well as amylases, lactase and lipase, making Gluten Relief a complete formula for overall digestive ease.

Gluten Relief for Full-Spectrum Protein Digestion

Undigested proteins can enter the bloodstream through a ‘leaky gut’ or permeable mucus lining of the small intestine. Research indicates that a leaky gut invariably leads to autoimmune issues of many kinds. Gluten Relief by AST Enzymes is designed with full-protease power to help digest all types of protein s that cause trouble in the GI tract as well in the rest of the body. DPP-IV and Gluten Relief’s five additional proteases help to breakdown gluten and undigested proteins which can initiate immune system reactions.

Proteins like gluten and casein are large, complex molecules with thousands of amino acid sequences folded and coiled within the molecule, much like a ball of yarn. Without sufficient and specific enzymes to break them down, amino acid bonds within these large proteins can remain inaccessible to enzymes, ultimately resulting in a protein that is only partially degraded.  These smaller peptide strands are still long enough to cause problems with digestion – gas, bloating, occasional loose stools, constipation, fatigue, or even worse, sever GI inflammation.

The improper digestion of carbohydrates often becomes an associated issue with gluten intolerance. Gluten Relief addresses this issue with the inclusion of 2 kinds of amylase, as well as glucoamylase and cellulose for complete sugar and carbohydrate digestion.  Avoiding gluten and casein in food and everyday products can be difficult. Even while maintaining a GFCF lifestyle, many products can be hidden sources of these proteins and continue to cause problems. Gluten Relief can be used in conjunction with a GFCF diet to alleviate the stress caused by hidden gluten and casein, allowing them to be properly broken down and absorbed in their digested state.

Enzyme Activity in Gluten Relief® Proprietary Blend


How It Works

Dipeptidyl Peptidase IV (DPP-IV)

… is a blend of 5 powerful proteases that are able to function in a wide pH range, enhancing protein digestion. DPP-IV specifically works on the proline component of gliadin (found in gluten) and casein proteins and is involved in regulating the inflammatory response to the gluten peptide.

Amylase I, II & Glucoamylase

…are enzymes that break down carbohydrates, more specifically starch, into smaller dextrins and sugars and are produced naturally by humans, microorganisms and plants.


…is an enzyme that digests cellulose, a complex polysaccharide found in all plant material including plant fiber.

Hemicellulase and Xylanase

… (HemiSEB cellulose) are enzymes that break down carbohydrates, like fiber and other plant polysaccharides such as hemicellulose, a major component of plant cell walls.


…is an enzyme that breaks down complex carbohydrates such as raffinose, and stachyose, commonly contained in legumes, cruciferous vegetables and grains.


…is an enzyme that breaks down lactose, the difficult to digest disaccharide found in milk, into simple sugars for easier absorption.


…is an enzyme that catalyzes the break-down of fats into essential fatty acids that are needed for healthy tissues and cells.
