Gluten Free Resource for Restaurants

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Here's an interesting training course designed for restaurants to properly equip themselves to serve the gluten free customer.  Neat, huh? :)

The program is known as GREAT, which stands for Gluten-Free Resource Education Awareness Training, and it covers everything from ingredients and safety to...drumroll please...CROSS CONTAMINATION!  I love it!  

Cross contamination is the main antagonist against adherence to the gluten-free diet and something that I am constantly asking restaurants about.  It only takes a bread crumb to ruin my week, so this is up utmost importance. 

That being said, here's a quote from the program's website, "GREAT Kitchens is a web-based, self-managed continuing education program for chefs, dietitians and other food service professionals.

This 90-minute course teaches the essentials of gluten-free safety from fridge to fork."  I'm not sure if there's other programs out there and I've never taken this one, but it looks like it could be a good investment for restaurants.  I'm much more comfortable eating places that have been properly trained on gluten intolerance/sensitivity.
