7 Myths About Celiac Disease, Gluten Sensitivity and the Gluten-Free Diet

Myth 5: If a restaurant has a gluten-free menu, they know how to serve people with celiac disease

Although many restaurants and companies have expanded their options by offering gluten-free meals in their menus or products that are safe for celiac patients, most people working in these places have not been introduced properly to the world of gluten-free options. Because they aren't as aware of how delicate these foods are and how they must be manipulated properly to avoid cross-contamination, celiac patients should always be cautious when first visiting somewhere that's "gluten-free." It is always recommended to call ahead and ask about their gluten-free options and clarify any possible doubts regarding menu options.
