The mission of GLUTENFREEDININGCLUB is to educate the gluten free community about gluten free products and restaurants through our experiences that have gluten free menus or are gluten free friendly. We also hope to be the Gluten Free Ambassadors of Change! If we have a bad experience, we hope to educate and entertain.
1 in 133 Americans have celiac disease. That’s according to the Celiac Foundation and the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness. As many as 18 million Americans may have non-celiac gluten sensitivity. According to a 2015 Gallup Poll, 1 in 5 Americans try to include gluten free goods in their diet. According to food allergy resistance and education, 4.2 billion is spent on gluten free foods. The gluten free market is exploding at a rapid pace and as a result many restaurants and food companies have quickly jumped on the bandwagon to profitability. For those who suffer from Celiac Disease or are Gluten Intolerant, all this attention can be a good thing.
A celebration for so many new choices are a curse to those who get sick because of the lack of attention to detail. Many are trying to capitalize on the gluten free market by using the words gluten free so liberally as if it is a diet. This trend has sparked a lot of debate. It’s all that so called talk that sparked the idea of the GLUTENFREEDININGCLUB. We started GLUTENFREEDININGCLUB after talking about our experience at restaurants and buying gluten free products.
