Consumers are becoming more mindful of health and wellness when dining. In fact, 1 in 10 people now avoid gluten. Operators should embrace the challenge of creating innovative, quality gluten-free menu items. Consider the wide breadth of gluten-free alternative products available and combine them with trendy, gourmet flavors. For example, this Bacon and Lobster Mac & Cheese is rich, appealing, and completely gluten-free.
Chickpeas are not only a trendy ingredient, but also make for a quality alternative pasta. Barilla Chickpea Rotini, available through Maines, is a top-choice gluten-free pasta. It’s also a good source of plant-based protein and fiber, furthering appeal to health-conscious consumers. All-Natural is another trending label to consider with your gluten-free menu. All natural, gluten-free bacon is certain to be a popular addition. Gourmet cheese, decadent lobster, and a crunch of gluten-free panko finish off this stunning, elevated classic.
