University of Arizona Gets New Gluten-free Dining Options

Celiac.com 04/19/2013 - The University of Arizona (U of A) has announced plans to add an exclusive gluten-free space as part of their remodeling of the Student Unions' On Deck Deli.

Fueled in part by increased diagnosis and awareness of gluten-intolerance or celiac disease, and in part by the recent settlement of a lawsuit between L college and the Department of Justice, more and more colleges and universities are taking strong and rapid steps to provide reliable gluten-free food options for students who need them.

U of A had already planned to remodel the deli in order to combat an outdated look and falling sales. As part of that process, the university decided to incorporate a strong gluten-free presence in the space, according to Todd Millay, marketing manager of Arizona Student Unions.

“What drove it was the gluten-free and the grab and go. We’re responding to a couple of student patterns and we had the opportunity to integrate those at On Deck Deli," Millay said.

Gluten-free and to-go food options were incorporated in the new design, as well as new signs, new food cases, better lighting and the elimination of order slips. Most of the renovation was in electrical work and cost a little more than $6,000, according to Millay.

Millay said that the University wants gluten-free students to know that they now have a place designed with them in mind.

Thanks for sharing the info! My son has celiac disease and goes to the UofA, and that's exciting to hear he'll have more gluten-free options for eating on campus!

I think you should seriously consider consulting with a nutritionist or dietician who works with autoimmune patients.

Fine to get the shots, but why are you not absorbing the B-12? What is the root cause? Are you Vegan, take antacids, had weight loss surgery, or is your celiac disease active?

I just wanted to check back in, in case anyone happens upon this with similar symptoms. I didn't mention this in the original post, but I've been taking 5000 mcg of Methyl B12 sublingually daily for at least a year. I had my doctor test my HoloTC and it turns out that even though I was takin...

I have what I believe is or are hemorrhoids and my chronic joint pain seemed to come about at around the same time. These symptoms all came about immediately after the birth of my daughter.

Wheat starch can be gluten-free. The amount in a cough drop is very very small.
