Gluten-free gospel spreading

Although only about one percent of the worldwide population has been diagnosed with celiac disease (a disorder where the ingestion of gluten causes damage to the small intestine), a significant number of Americans—as many as one in five, according to Gallup—shun gluten by choice. Fortunately, restaurants considering more gluten-free offerings for their menus have more options, as evidenced by a proliferation of exhibitors at the recent National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago.

Key Takeaways:

  • only about one percent of the worldwide population has been diagnosed with celiac disease
  • celiac disease: an autoimmune disorder in which the ingestion of gluten causes damage to the small intestine
  • Many restaurants are already serving dishes that are naturally gluten free, making it easy for operators to invite celiac sufferers in for a worry-free dining experience
