The gluten-free food market has exploded in recent years. It’s due in part to the nearly 3 million Americans with Celiac disease, the 1 in 7 Americans who will have gluten intolerance at some point in their lifetime, and a new wave of healthy eaters who feel better without gluten in their diet.
If you’re on a gluten-free diet, you’ve probably been frustrated trying to find restaurants that are certified as gluten-free. Some restaurants advertise a gluten-free menu, but many don’t and gluten-free eaters end up being restricted to the one or two restaurants they know are gluten-free.
“Dish Freely,” a new iPhone app, is helping gluten-free eaters find certified gluten-free restaurants.
The app allows gluten-free eaters to submit and rate gluten-free dishes they’ve tried. They can even search for specific dishes and see reviews of the best gluten-free results in the area.
All reviews are submitted by actual users who can upload photos of the dish, add comments, and even check into location-based services like Foursquare.
