WHY WE ARE GLUTEN FREE | DAIRY FREE | NO MSG | NON GMO | NO HFCS
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye, which is not a bad thing, BUT it is for anyone with Celiac. We are gluten free because Celiac disease is far more common today than it was 50 years ago. Life with celiac is difficult and we wanted to create a stress free eatery where you do not have to worry about gluten being an issue. Gluten it is no where in our menu!
We are DAIRY FREE because millions of Americans can’t digest a certain sugar in milk. If you’re one of them, you have lactose intolerance. The damage that gluten causes in the small intestine is the main factor in the lack of lactase for people with celiac disease.
We do not use MSG in our foods due to how it can effect some individuals digestion system. It is also known to cause asthma attacks in others.
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering.Currently, there is no clear and definite proof of the full effects of what GMOs do to the human body, and that's scary!
We do not use HFCS(high fructose corn syrup) because it is a rich source of fructose that adds an unnatural amount of fructose to your diet. HFCS is linked to other serious health issues including diabetes, and heart disease.
