Wheat is one of the most consumed cereal grains worldwide and represents an important part of the human diet. The protein content of wheat is between 7% and 22%, with gluten constituting about 80% of the total protein of the seed. The aim of this proposed Special Issue entitled “Grain Intake and Human Health” is to offer a robust and critical updated view on the relationship between grain intake and human health, with a particular focus on gluten-related diseases like coeliac disease, non-coeliac gluten sensitivity, and gluten allergy. Furthermore, studies evaluating the level of nutritional knowledge of patients affected by these diseases will be also welcome. We would like different types of manuscript submissions, including original preclinical and clinical research articles and up-to-date reviews (narrative and systematic reviews, as well as meta-analyses).
