Celiac.com 03/15/2013 - The website GlutenFreeTravelSite.com has named Pennsylvania as the most celiac-friendly destination in the world.
Each year, the site chooses winners based on the highest number of positive reviews received over the previous twelve months. Previous winners include New York, Florida, Washington D.C. and California.
According to the travel site, Pennsylvania won this year “due in large part to the many, many Philadelphia-area restaurants that have undergone training through the GREAT Kitchens program run by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness [NFCA]."
Through its GREAT Kitchens program, the NFCA focuses on training restaurants in safely preparing gluten-free meals. It also offers training for chefs and food-service managers on safely handling gluten-free food.
According to their website, glutenfreetravel.com offers resources, tips and other information devoted to helping people with celiac disease to travel freely, without being inhibited by their celiac disease. The company has its headquarters in Pennsylvania.
