Low Gluten Meal (Really?)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am booked on a Japan Airlines flight from Tokyo to LAX in a few days. I called to book gluten free meal. I have no intention of eating whatever they provide, but I figured I'd rather have gluten-free sitting in front of me than a gluten meal. Anyway, JAL doesn't offer gluten free. They have a "low gluten" meal. I told the agent that was ridiculous. Of course he couldn't do anything about it and probably he doesn't even know what gluten is. I booked it and will see what it is exactly then maybe I can write a letter to the airline after the trip explaining that low gluten is like giving someone with a strawberry allergy "just" 2 strawberries instead of 5!

I've returned from my trip. The flight attendants asked me if I ordered a gluten free meal. That was the terminology they used. At any rate, I ate the fruit and the yogurt and what I brought on the plane. The "main dish" was some sort of fish in sauce. No way was I going to touch that! Both flights I brought way more food than I needed. No problems with airport security at all.

I've noticed that 'low-gluten' food is becoming very common throughout the world. I do believe it's because of a lot of people going, 'gluten-free'. While this diet craze has been beneficial in many ways, making more gluten-free products available, it seems now that it's beginning to backfire on those of us who actually suffer from celiac disease.
