Elite Colleges Treat Gluten-free Students to Exclusive Eateries

Celiac.com 07/13/2015 - Gluten-free students at two elite liberal arts colleges in suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, are now able to enjoy exclusive gluten-free dining areas.

Photo: CC--Montgomery County PlanningBoth Haverford College and Bryn Mawr College have created dedicated, exclusively gluten-free dining areas for their students with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, according to a report by Campus Reform.

Bryn Mawr opened their gluten-free dining area in 2013, and Haverford followed in 2014.

The exclusive eating areas are the brainchild of Bernie Chung-Templeton, executive director of dining services at both schools.

Each of the gluten-free dining areas has signage clearly warning students to refrain from bringing in food from outside, including the main school cafeteria.

What do you think? Do students with celiac disease or gluten intolerance deserve dedicated, exclusively gluten-free dining options?

A team of researchers recently set out to identify celiac disease pa...

Having had a horrid time with a sore tongue recently, I can pass on a bit of advice from one consultant. It is good to ensure that one's ferritin is up to at least 40 to deal with sore areas in the mouth. Might be worth getting a blood test. Also, B12 is another one to watch.

I would trust the label over what some customer rep said on the phone but consider calling back and talk to a supervisor. I looked up the product and confirmed there was no gluten. I can not imagine gluten being added. The rep might think ?stuffed? is the same as ?stuffing? as in turkey. ? ...
