I’m rootin’ for Gluten. What's really in that Diet of yours?

                                      I’m rootin’ for Gluten
                                      What's really in that Diet of yours?

I came up with this Zinger of a One-Liner earlier today, Wednesday, August 28, 2013 at 6:42 AM when I was thinking about Gluten. We think of something perpetually, even if we are not that conscious about the Stream of Issues that invade our Brains.  Sometimes, those subject matters matter (to others, if not ourselves) at most times.  I had heard the Debates about Gluten and decided that one of the better ways to explore a topic moreso is to give it its very own BLOG Page.  Therefore, others can also chime-in on the Topic with what Knowledge they may know and wish to share.

EVEN RECIPES.  Recipes of your favorite Gluten and Gluten-free Products may be listed here.  For instance to kick-off the G-Agenda, a simple Google Search reveals that: 

about 54,700,000 results (0.18 seconds) are available.

I have no idea why it took Google so long, but evidently, Gluten now has a defined Presence that it didn’t really have back when I was ‘Growing Up Koopersmith’ and had never heard of the word.

Direct from the Pages of Wikipedia, their Definition reads as:

Gluten (from Latin gluten, "glue") is a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grain species, including barley and rye. Gluten gives elasticity to dough, helping it rise and keeps its shape and often gives the final product a chewy texture. Gluten may also be found in some cosmetics, hair products, and other dermatological preparations.


Gluten is the composite of a gliadin and a glutenin, which is conjoined with starch in the endosperm of various grass-related grains. The prolamin and glutelin from wheat (gliadin, which is alcohol-soluble, and glutenin, which is only soluble in dilute acids or alkalis) constitute about 80% of the protein contained in wheat fruit. Being insoluble in water, they can be purified by washing away the associated starch. Worldwide, gluten is a source of protein, both in foods prepared directly from sources containing it, and as an additive to foods otherwise low in protein.

The fruit of most flowering plants have endosperms with stored protein to nourish embryonic plants during germination. True gluten, with gliadin and glutenin, is limited to certain members of the grass family. The stored proteins of maize and rice are sometimes called glutens, but their proteins differ from true gluten.

About 1 in 133 people in developed nations have allergic reactions to gluten, some of which can be severe enough to be life-threatening.

Buddhist Monks discovered gluten in the 7th century. The monks, who were vegetarians, were trying to find a substitute for meat. They discovered that when they submerged dough in water, the starch washed off and all that was left was a meat-like, textured, gummy mass - Gluten.

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY:  The best way to start off a Series is with Comments from others more knowledgeable about the Topic.  Let the List begin:

"To glute or not to glute" that evidently still remains as the Question we must all decide for ourselves.

Animating: iN THE COMPANY OF ANTS: The Film that eliminates Racism.

ASK/Chicago ‘asks’ 2 Pertinent Questions:

1) Are you looking to produce any Animated Movies?

2)  Do you know of anyone you looking to produce Animated Movies? Animation equates to TOYS as you very well know and are extremely marketable and commercial.

The Reason I ‘ask’ is that:

I have an award-winning Spec(ial) Script that beat out 3,164 in The Scriptapalooza International Screenplay Competition (based in Hollywood) and placed as a Quarterfinalist Winner in July of 2010. Said Story was only the Third Script I had ever written in my entire Life, having taught myself The ART in order to ‘compete.’ Moreover, only Movie Industry Professionals are used in this Contest to read the Submissions received from across the World. Therefore, I feel this Entry warranted a great Deal of Merit.
Since that pivotal Date, iN THE COMPANY OF ANTS ©2009 has been rewritten as 2 Movie Scripts and 2 Books. Now ‘THE COLONY’ needs an Angel Investor and its 'Big Break."

Its three (3) Topics of Concern are immensely timely, humanitarian and focus on the:

- Elimination of Racism;

- Dispelling the Mixed Signals & Ironies We receive every Day; &

- Getting to the Heart of what really matter.

The Characters are highly brandable as they are all TOYS taken from my Private TOY Collection that turned 60 years old as of Friday, August 9TH (of 2013).

As Mellody Hobson, Chairman of the Board for DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. stated in a note to me dated March 14, 2013 upon receiving my Press Kit:

You are quite the Creative Genius.”

Therefore, Question #3 is: Any Interest or Guidance?

Winning an Award from top Industrial Movers & Shakers based on the most Humanitarian Subject Matter in our Mists (Racism) and receiving a Compliment from a leading Executive in the Animation Industry sets the Stage for the next Phase of:


derived from the 7 Part Series entitled:
