'The Gluten Lie'

Hosted by

We recently received a basket of fruit here at KCRW. It looked like orange cherry tomatoes. The press release that came with the fruits said they’re an “antioxidant-packed superfruit” called “Pichuberries.” It seems like a product aimed directly at us here in L.A., where detoxing is a team sport and yoga teachers are as likely to be the source of diet advice as doctors. But, are antioxidants really all that good for you? And what is a superfruit, anyway? We hear from an author who’s written a book about popular food myths, including cautionary tales about gluten, sugar, fat and salt.
