All products from NICK’S are free from wheat and gluten. Not because it’s trendy and hip but because wheat quickly transforms to sugar in our bodies. Gluten is a protein composite found in grains. Wheat is the most well-known gluten source, wheat consists of long chains of glucose, and our bodies break it down just like regular sugar. Gluten can cause trouble by making the body inflamed, resulting in affecting your body in a negative way all throughout the body. That is why we don’t use it.
