How has Minsky’s staff prepared to serve gluten-free food?
Minsky’s management team members have completed gluten-free training through the GREAT Kitchens program, an educational initiative created and run by Beyond Celiac. Managers and staff have been instructed on how to read ingredient labels, avoid cross-contact with gluten-containing foods, and answer your questions about Minsky’s gluten-free options. Learn more about the GREAT Kitchens gluten-free training program.
Minsky’s and Beyond Celiac remind customers that changes in staff and management are always a possibility, so customers are advised to ask questions and confirm that gluten-free protocols are in place when ordering a gluten-free meal. Customers are encouraged to provide feedback on Minsky’s gluten-free options by submitting this Comment Form.
What is celiac disease?
Celiac disease is a genetic autoimmune disorder that is triggered by the ingestion of gluten – a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. When an individual with celiac disease eats a food that contains gluten, it sets off a reaction that causes inflammation and damage in the intestine. That damage can interfere with the absorption of nutrients and lead to numerous short-term and long-term health problems.
Celiac disease affects an estimated 1% of the population. Currently, the only treatment is a strict, lifelong gluten-free diet.
What is non-celiac gluten sensitivity?
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (also known as “gluten sensitivity” or “gluten intolerance”) is a condition that is also triggered by the ingestion of gluten, but does not appear to cause the intestinal damage that is seen in celiac disease.
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity affects an estimated 6% of the population. Currently, the only treatment is a strict, lifelong gluten-free diet.
*Beyond Celiac advises anyone considering a gluten-free diet to get tested for celiac disease before going gluten-free. Eliminating gluten before getting tested can affect the accuracy of results. Take the Celiac Disease Symptoms Checklist here.
