What is Gluten-Free - Gluten Free Restaurants

Eating gluten-free foods has become more popular in this country. That is why Pita Jungle offers a variety of gluten-free options to meet this demand. What is gluten-free food? Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. It makes dough more elastic, helps it rise, and adds a chewy texture to a variety of foods, including pasta, pizza and bread. Many foods contain gluten, but not all people are able to digest food with this type of protein. A condition called celiac disease, for example, causes inflammation in the small intestine and damage to the intestinal lining when foods containing gluten are eaten. For celiac sufferers, consuming gluten will result in malabsorption of many of the nutrients our bodies need to stay healthy.

Pita Jungle's resident dietitian, Antoinetta Anselmo, knows that customers with celiac disease and other gluten sensitivities need a variety of nutritious gluten-free food options. At Pita Jungle, we strive to provide gluten-free foods that are not only healthy - but also delectable. Choose from a variety of gluten free dishes, including our Falafel Platter, Chicken Tikka Masala, Broiled Chicken Salad or Rice Pudding, to discover just how delicious gluten free can be!

If you are uncertain whether a particular menu item is gluten free simply ask your server. Our knowledgeable staff can answer questions you may have about our gluten-free dishes. Come to Pita Jungle today and discover "The Art of Eating Healthy®"!
