Why is NFCA supporting Domino's® Gluten Free Crust?
The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness sees this as a big step in the right direction to both benefit and educate customers concerned about gluten. NFCA does NOT recommend this pizza for those with celiac disease or gluten-related disorders.
What was NFCA's role in this initiative?
Domino’s Pizza® contacted NFCA to better understand celiac disease and gluten-related disorders, because they wanted to ensure what they offer is the right product for customers.
NFCA observed Domino’s® operations and worked closely with management to better educate Domino’s® on celiac disease and gluten-related disorders, and to define who the appropriate consumer is for Domino's® Gluten Free Crust.
Currently, Domino's® operational procedures do not allow stores to avoid all cases of potential cross-contact. Therefore, NFCA and Domino's® are notifying customers of the risks so they can make informed choices when ordering.
