With more and more people choosing a gluten-free diet, it’s bound to have an impact on travel. Food is one of the big reasons why people travel and if you’re following a strict diet, it’s easy to feel defeated when looking for a GF eatery. Your best bet? The USA.
When GrubHub, an American food delivery website, starting tracking the gluten-free offerings at popular restaurants and following the requests of their users, they were amazed to find that gluten-free orders have climbed nearly 60% in the last year! When it comes down to the numbers, It’s safe to say that some American cities are just more gluten-free friendly than others but on a whole, the USA is a great country to visit if you’re gluten-free and don’t want to live off of the “free from” crackers you’ve packed from home.
