Dr. Paul Aoun, GRILLiT's senior medical advisor wrote, "Gluten is a protein found in grains such as wheat, barley, or rye, or it may be 'hidden' in various food items. It is sometimes used to thicken soups, sauces, and salad dressings. Recent data suggests that gluten intolerance is more prevalent than previously thought, and may cause digestive issues or other ailments for individuals who may be gluten sensitive. These symptoms appear to subside significantly when they cut back on gluten-containing products from their diet. As a result, more people are paying closer attention to the gluten content of their meals."
"GRILLiT is a fast-casual, health-conscious restaurant concept," said CEO Ghazi Hajj. "We continue to monitor the gluten and MSG content of products purchased from our vendors and distributors to ensure that our menu meets the highest standards of quality, is MSG free, and maintains well over 90% gluten-free menu items."
