If you are gluten-sensitive, eliminating gluten from your diet is the only solution, and it is both effective and essential in addressing symptoms ana maintaining health, it is not a diet fad and it can cause a variety of health issues.
At Green Leaves restaurant, we strive to educate our staff on gluten allergies and understand why some of our customers needed to be gluten free. Special color labeling and plates are utilized.
To eliminate all gluten from other ingredients, separate utensil, cutting boards, pots, pans and a separate area for Gluten Free production is implemented. Hidden contamination areas are identified like door handles, contaminated aprons, hand sink and pot holders.
