There are dozens of different diets and dietary requirements people adhere to that can require alterations to the menu when ordering. Some are voluntary restrictions, but others can lead to bad or allergic reactions if consumed. It’s important to take restrictions seriously and try to accommodate in your kitchen as best as possible. One such dietary restriction is for customers with coeliac disease.
Coeliac disease is when the body has a bad reaction to gluten, causing gastrointestinal issues and trouble absorbing nutrients. The way to manage this is by having a gluten free diet. According to Coeliac Australia, this disease affects approximately 1 in 70 Australians. However, around 80% are undiagnosed and don’t know they have it.
Gluten is found in a variety of common foods and ingredients such as bread, pasta, flour, biscuits, condiments, and cakes. Manufacturers are starting to create bulk gluten-free products, foods, and mixes to support this growing customer demand. Maggi products have gluten-free solutions that make it easy to accommodate and cook wholesale gluten free meals.
