The Challenge: Finding a safe place to eat
The Truth: Getting glutened sucks and many restaurants don't know enough to keep you safe, even if they may have "gluten-free" items on their menu.
The GD Solution: A directory of both 100% GF restaurants AND restaurants that are not 100% GF but have been recommended by the celiac community and vetted/researched by the Gluten Dude team. Our #1 goal is to keep you safe and to provide you with enough information in order for you to make a decision that you are comfortable with.
** NOW INCLUDES: 1) a third category of restaurants to give you more options; 2) the ability to filter the restaurants according to your comfort level eating out; and 3) notifications when a restaurant in your area gets added to the app.
OVER 10,500 RESTAURANTS AROUND THE WORLD WITH MORE VETTED/ADDED EVERY DAY.
The Challenge: Saving money on gluten-free food
The Truth: Gluten-free food is expensive and the big brands (Udi's, Schar, etc.) own the store shelves, leaving you with few options and empty pockets.
The GD Solution: A directory of more than 150 gluten-free companies that you can order from online that will ship right to your doorstep, with coupons to over 50 of them. Everything from pasta to cookies to mixes to breads to cakes to muffins and more! Order from the comfort of your own home, support small business and save money, all at the same time.
The Challenge: Finding gluten-free options at the airport
The Truth: Traveling with celiac disease can be stressful. Finding gluten-free food at the airport when your flight is delayed just adds to that stress.
The GD Solution: A directory of the most traveled airports in the world, with a list of eating establishments and GF options at each one. We rank each eatery so you can spot your best options quickly. There's no need to fly the (un)friendly skies hungry anymore.
The Challenge: Locating gluten-free beer
The Truth: 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 for those with celiac disease. There are a handful of amazing 100% gluten-free beers out there, but they can be difficult to find.
The GD Solution: A directory of more than 17,000 stores, bars and restaurants around the world where you can purchase gluten-free beer, with contact into and directions.
The Challenge: Connecting with other people who "get it"
The Truth: One of the hardest things about living with celiac is that it is so misunderstood and it can be a lonely disease.
The GD Solution: Connect you with others in the celiac/GF community with private chats. You’ll even have the option of providing your zip code, allowing you to search for others by location. You can reach out when traveling to a new town and get local help, make new friends in your own area, plan GF play-dates with other parents of GF kids, etc.
The Challenge: Getting the right info to help you on your journey
The Truth: The internet is littered with falsehoods and fear-mongering when it comes to celiac disease. You deserve to get accurate information.
The GD Solution: A forum where you can post questions, get answers, and also find the latest and greatest information regarding the best vacation spots, hotels, stadiums/arenas, and more.
