Food allergen and gluten training and awareness among restaurant workers serving gluten-free foods
Current Developments in Nutrition
Adherence to a strict gluten free (GF) diet is critical for patients with gluten related disorders (GRDs). Even though meals that are labeled or advertised as being GF are widely available in restaurants, their safety remains questionable. To protect customers with GRDs, restaurant workers need to be trained in proper procedures regarding food allergens, food intolerances and sensitivities. The purpose of this study was to assess training and awareness about gluten and GRDs among employees in restaurants that offered GF menu options.
