Naturally Gluten-Free Food Named as a Top Trend in Mexican Cuisine for 2014


The gluten-free industry has skyrocketed to reach the $20 billion mark.  52% of chain restaurants surveyed are reporting they plan to expand their gluten-free menu options.  Now, gluten-free options are being recognized as a trend in Mexican cuisine for 2014, according to Zagat.

“Most Mexican food is naturally gluten-free - a fact that is not lost on savvy restaurateurs, who are increasingly touting the fact with menu coding or entire separate gluten-free menus,” the Zagat article read. 

While many Mexican options are naturally gluten-free, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) reminds you to diligently ask questions about ingredients and food preparation processes to ensure you are receiving a safe meal.
