By now we’ve all heard the term “gluten” multiple times in our lives. For those who are unfamiliar, gluten is a protein found in wheat, spelt, rye, barley and more. In recent years, there has been an increase in research devoted to gluten-related disorders, most specifically celiac disease. This disease is caused by hypersensitivity to gluten within the small intestine, thus leading to the improper digestion of food. For those with celiac disease, consuming gluten essentially eats away at the inner lining of the stomach, causing irritation, pain, bloating and other potentially serious conditions.
While there is much more knowledge to be gained surrounding gluten itself and celiac disease, the bottom line is, more and more people are developing gluten sensitivities. That is why at Cottage Inn we are determined to providing a gluten-free pizza that not only protects those with gluten allergies from the unfortunate symptoms that can arise, but also one that tastes good, too. We understand how difficult not only transitioning to a gluten-free lifestyle can be, but also the stress that comes with maintaining such a restrictive diet.
If you’ve been struck by gluten sensitivity or celiac disease, some of the foods you should avoid unless labeled “Gluten-Free” or “GF” are:
- French Fries
- Cakes and pies
- Processed lunch meats
- Flour and more…
The list goes on and mastering the gluten-free lifestyle can be very difficult, considering wheat products have a number of aliases and monikers that are indiscernible. That is why at Cottage Inn, we have risen to the challenge, working tirelessly to perfect a delectable gluten-free crust. Much to our surprise, it measures up to the crust on our regular pizza, allowing us to provide customers with a genuinely tasty alternative to gluten-filled pizza.
