Gluten-friendly flatbread and salad at The Natural

Gluten-Friendly Dining

University Dining Services understands dietary needs with a gluten intolerance or Celiac disease and how it can affect your overall health and well-being. We offer a variety of menu items daily that naturally do not contain gluten, as well as specifically made gluten-free foods.

 

We understand eating away from home with food allergies and intolerances can be very challenging and stressful. We are dedicated to providing support to students with food allergies through education, staff training and working with students with food allergies and intolerances.

 

The FDA requires labeling for the top eight allergens but does not require labeling for items that contain gluten. The FDA defines gluten-free food as containing less than 200 ppm of gluten. This makes tagging items containing gluten a challenge. We do our research but do not always have complete information.

 

Although UDS does serve foods that are labeled gluten-free, we are not a 100% gluten-free establishment. If you have a food allergy, Celiac disease, serious gluten intolerance or other medically necessary diet needs, please contact the UDS registered dietitian to discuss your options.

 

Below is  list of the gluten-friendly foods offered on campus and where to find them.
