For guests with food allergies and intolerances, allergen free foods quickly become a necessity, as the wrong foods can pose serious health risks. We work hard to provide our guests with the gluten-free, allergen-free options they need.
What is gluten?
Gluten is the general name for storage proteins found in wheat, rye, and barley. From a food science stand-point, gluten is responsible for combining with water to produce an elastic and porous web that holds the food together. This is why many gluten-free breads or baked goods fall apart and break easily – the elasticity is missing.
Why do people follow a gluten-free diet?
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease of the small intestine that occurs in genetically predisposed people. If a person with celiac disease consumes gluten, it causes inflammation of the small intestine, which can cause unpleasant symptoms and further health complications. A strict, lifelong gluten free diet is the only treatment for celiac disease.
Some people choose to eat gluten free for other personal or health-related reasons, such as gluten intolerance or digestive troubles. Whatever your reasons may be, we understand it is important to provide you with a variety of gluten free products that suit your needs.
