The ultimate mobile app for the celiac and gluten-free communities.
Find Safe Places to Eat
Eating out with celiac disease is stressful. The Gluten Dude app lists only restaurants that have been personally vetted, so you can spend less time worrying and more time relaxing. NEW RESTAURANTS ADDED EVERY DAY.
Shop Online & Save Money
Quality gluten-free food is expensive and hard to find. The Gluten Dude app lists over 150 online companies that ship, with coupons to over 50 of them, so you can discover new products, support small businesses and save money at the same time.
Get Your Questions Answered
Getting diagnosed with celiac disease is overwhelming and leads to a lot of questions. The Gluten Dude app has answers to your questions so you can make an easier transition to a gluten-free life.
Make a Connection
Celiac can be a lonely and misunderstood disease. The Gluten Dude app allows you to privately connect with others who have celiac disease, so you can make new friends and become part of a community of people who “get it”.
Locate Gluten-Free Beer
True gluten-free beer is hard to find. The Gluten Dude app lists over 10,000 stores, bars and restaurants that have gluten-free beer so you can spend less time trying to find beer and more time enjoying it.
"This app is different than other Gluten free apps I’ve downloaded. It includes recommendations where you can find a good GF beer and ways to connect to other Celiacs. I love the interaction components and support. Great app!"
"Love your app! Used it to find gf beer while traveling to another state. It was at a cool little bar that we would have missed if not for your app. Thanks."
"So nice to see a well thought out, clear, GF resource app for people with Coeliac Disease. Sometimes it can be hard to trust other GF apps but I feel confident using this one. A great step forward for the Coeliac community!"
"So grateful I came across this app. I was diagnosed 26 years ago when there were NO resources to help us. I am so excited for all of the resources I could ever have imagined all in one app now!!"
"If you aren’t familiar with Gluten Dude and you have celiac, hit up his website for excellent information, check out his book, and then get this app. You can’t beat Gluten Dude’s blend of helpful information, honesty, frustration, and humor of walking through this tough disease called Celiac Disease."
"I love the Gluten Dude App! It is a great resource and it is easy to use! All of the data is vetted by Gluten Dude and his team. It is a labor of love and it shows. Kudos on a job well done! Get this app if you have Celiac Disease or Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity and help support our community."
"This app is exactly what the GF/Celiac community needs. Love that every restaurant on here is vetted with the ability to leave reviews and easily see whether or not it’s 100% GF. It’s so easy to navigate and looks nice too. Thank you for bringing this into our life."
"Just wanted to tell you how worth the money your app is! My husband and I went to Philly this weekend and I ate great food all weekend and wasn't sick for a second. Thank you!"
"I can imagine that you get messages like this maybe hundreds of times a day. I have been suffering my entire life I am 56 years old. I am working very hard to follow a gluten-free diet and it has been very hard. Thank you for this remarkable resource!!!"

Who 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 35,000 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 about the realities of living with celiac disease.
Kind Words from the Celiac Community
You are like tonic to the gut, bubbling with humorous dialogue to cure the sad soul of any celiac needing attention. I am lifted from my moody mornings into hope for our future in a healthy community as I read your lines and the comments they generate.
Your website and the Gluten Dude community you have brought together is so POSITIVE and crucial for my health and happiness and knowledge and celiac confidence! Thank you.
Dude…Where the hell have you been all my life? Kudos and thanks for all that you do.
As a direct result of your educational sharing and awareness raising efforts, I am confident that the health of countless lives have already been drastically improved. Best wishes and most importantly, THANK YOU hero!
You have brought us laughter, information and a safe place to rant and vent. You have created a place where we can let it all hang out, and just be ourselves. Sometimes we just need to be in the company of fellow travelers along this road. You gave that to us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You changed the journey for me.
Your latest post is why my son wants to be Gluten Dude when he grows up.
Like John Lennon coaxing Prudence from her room, the Gluten Dude asks other celiacs to come out and play. With acerbic wit, candor and a touch of rebellion, he's sharing his journey and he's enticing the celiac community to do the same.
You make me smile, you make me cry, and you make me mad. But, most of all, you make me grateful that I don’t have to figure this all out on my own.
One of your blogs appeared in the middle of a sea of the usual B.S. and feel-good nonsense about celiac and gluten that is all over the Internet. What a relief to find what you are doing here. I can't believe it. Finally!
Your blog just stopped me from going over the edge. Thank you!
Thanks for the balanced approach, whether it is funny, sad, angry, silly or loving. We have all been through the emotional roller coaster. I look forward to hearing the real voices of the folks who comment here. You bring out the best in all of us! Thanks Dude!
Keep rockin’ Gluten Dude. You are changing the world for us.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can't say it enough. Your knowledge and honesty is like a life raft in an unknown and terrifying ocean.
Gluten Dude…you have touched so many lives and you have a way of making anyone who finds your blog to feel so understood and a part of a welcoming and supportive community.
