Living Gluten-Free is Getting Easier

San Antonio Express-News, December 16, 2013

 

Anne Barfield, Branch Manager of GIG San Antonio, as well as Lola O’Rourke, GIG registered dietitian provided input, including these tips on dining out: 

• If possible, go to restaurants that you have determined ahead of time have gluten-free options.

• Dine at off-hours rather than at peak times, so you’ll be more likely to receive adequate attention

of servers and other staff.

• Sauces and salad dressings must also be confirmed gluten-free.

• Ask whether gluten-free items are prepared separately from gluten-containing items to avoid

cross-contamination.

• Avoid fried foods that may be gluten-free themselves but are fried in oil also used for gluten containing foods.
