Gluten Free Tips When Dining Out

First of all, make sure you know what foods contain gluten and what to avoid!  Gluten will usually be found in breads, muffins, pizza, sauces, and in pasta.

Gluten is found in all wheat grains (spelt, kamut, graham, seitan, etc.) and wheat food products.

Gluten is also found in barley, rye, and in contaminated oats which are processed in the same place as the grains that contain gluten.

You can also find gluten in soy sauce, beer, brewer's yeast, pre-packaged shredded cheeses, sausages, cocoa, commercial ice cream, and in teriyaki sauce.

Ask your server if you can substitute rice for pasta.  Or just ask to have the cook remove any ingredients made with gluten. 

Chances are if you just stick to a simple dish - you may be able to avoid gluten altogether.

Be sure to ask questions about any sauces as they are usually prepared with wheat flour.

Bring your own tamari sauce to replace the soy sauce at a Sushi bar or at a Japanese restaurant to avoid consuming any gluten with your sushi or sashimi.

Do a Search for Gluten Free Restaurants

I would do a search online for gluten free restaurants especially before going on a trip or visiting an unfamiliar area.

It is essential that you let your waiter or server know that you are looking for gluten free options.

They should be more than happy to assist you.

Also, look for menus that contain GF next to gluten free food options.
