Why did Greco Pizza decide to create a GlutenGone™ menu selection?
Customer demand. Every day, more and more people are realizing they have a sensitivity to gluten. They may have been recently diagnosed with Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity or just want to live a Gluten Free lifestyle and still want to enjoy their favourite pizza and subs.
Your new Gluten-free subs are amazing!!!! Finally a healthy choice that is also delicious for those of us that can't have gluten. Thank-you!
What is gluten?
Gluten is the protein found in wheat, barley, rye and related wheat species such as spelt and kamut. It helps baked goods keep their form and chewy texture and is also added to other food items more and more, both for consistency and taste purposes.
What is Celiac Disease?
Celiac disease is a medical condition in which the absorptive surface of the small intestine is damaged by a substance called gluten. This results in an inability of the body to absorb nutrients: protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, which are necessary for good health.
Although statistics are not readily available, it is estimated that 1 in 133 persons in Canada are affected by celiac disease.
A wide range of symptoms may be present. Symptoms may appear together or singularly in children or adults. In general, the symptoms of untreated celiac disease indicate the presence of malabsorption due to the damaged small intestine. For more information please visit http://www.celiac.ca
Are GlutenGone™ Menu Items Gluten Free?
Greco Pizza's GlutenGone™ Menu Selections are made with ingredients that are not made with gluten, however Greco cannot certify that they are 100% gluten free. Our GlutenGone™ Menu items are prepared in Greco Pizza restaurants, that also produce products made with gluten, therefore there is the possibility of cross contamination of gluten between these products. Any person with a severe reaction to gluten should not consider these to be 100% gluten free. GlutenGone™ menu is NOT recommended for Celiac patients. There is always the small risk of cross contamination.
Love your gluten-free pizza!Can't wait to try the GF subs! Thanks for offering gluten-free products.
What does Greco do to lessen the risk of cross contamination with GlutenGone products in their stores?
There is always the small risk that a GlutenGone product could have come in contact with minute particles of gluten in the restaurant. Even small particles of flour can become airborne in the restaurant and contaminate GlutenGone products. While this risk is minimal and the amount of gluten would be very small Greco advises any customers who have a severe reaction to gluten to be aware that we cannot certify 100% that gluten is not in any GlutenGone products. Greco trains its staff in the importance of ensuring separation of gluten and Non Gluten products in the store. Staff training also includes using separate pizza paddles, cutting tools and utensils when preparing GlutenGone products to minimize the risk of cross contamination. Human errors however can occur despite our best efforts to ensure all GlutenGone products are free of any gluten.
Where are GlutenGone™ Pizza Shells and Sub Buns produced?
Pizza shells and sub buns are produced in a dedicated gluten-free bakery allowing us to ensure the highest level of customer safety.
