  • Connect with the GF Community

    Get your questions answered in the forum and chat privately with anyone in the community.

    Over 10,000 stores, bars & restaurants where you can purchase gluten-free beer. Stay thirsty, my friends.

Let's Eat

The Challenge: Finding safe places to eat.

The Solution: A directory of both 100% GF restaurants/bakeries and restaurants that are not 100% GF but have been recommended by the celiac community and personally vetted by the Gluten Dude team. Eating without fear. What a concept.

Let's Order

The Challenge: Discovering online GF companies and finding coupons when placing your order.

The Solution: Did you know there are over 140 gluten-free companies that you can order from online and that will ship right to your doorstep? Everything from pasta to cookies to mixes to breads to cakes to muffins and more! The GD App has a directory of every one of these online companies, with a description of who they are and what they sell, and a direct link to their online store.

Let's Discuss

The Challenge: Getting the right answers to your questions.

The Solution: A forum where discussion is encouraged but fear-mongering and misinformation will not be. The internet is littered with falsehoods and dangerous information regarding celiac disease. You deserve to get honest answers from those who have been in your shoes.

Let's Connect

The Challenge: Isolation and feeling like you're alone in your gluten-free journey.

The Solution: Live chat. The app will connect you with others in the celiac/GF community, allowing one on one private chats. You’ll even have the option of providing your zip code, allowing people to search for others by location. People can connect when they’re traveling to a new town and get local help, but also they can make new friends in their own area, plan GF play-dates with other parents of GF kids, etc. There is also the option to block users from contacting you if you wish.

Let's Drink

The Challenge: Locating gluten-free beer.

The Solution: Beer, sadly, is not gluten-free. The most popular "gluten-free" beers on the market today are actually "gluten-removed" and are not safe to drink. There are a handful of amazing 100% gluten-free beers out there, but they can be difficult to find. The Gluten Dude app shows the stores, bars and restaurants where you can purchase gluten-free beer.

Who the Heck is Gluten Dude?

Good question. I'm a passionate and very outspoken celiac disease advocate. I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2008 and I launched my blog in 2011. In the ten years since, I've written over 700 articles, received over 33,000 comments and the site has been visited over 9 million times.

I've helped a lot of people along the way, both publicly and privately, and this app is another way to serve the GF community. I've got a wonderful, spirited following on my blog and on social media. 

Oh...and I wrote a book.
