Gluten-Free Connecticut, LLC announces the launch of www.glutenfreeconnecticut.com, the state’s most comprehensive and up-to-date gluten-free resource. Abby Helman Kelly, a Simsbury mom of four who has been gluten free for many years, created the site after noting the lack of a comprehensive and up-to-date resource for gluten-free living in Connecticut.
A third of the American population is currently trying to avoid gluten at some level. As a result, demand for gluten-free products has grown, and the food industry has responded. In Connecticut, restaurants, bakeries, markets and even food trucks now offer gluten-free options. However, sifting through this growing number of dining choices can be daunting. Kelly has created a directory of over 700 gluten-friendly eateries and businesses in the state, with new listings added weekly. Users can easily browse through restaurants, filtering results by location, cuisine, or food item. Business owners and users are encouraged to submit listings for inclusion in the directory, at no cost. The site also offers informative articles on healthy eating and wellness, written by Connecticut-based health and wellness experts, as well as gluten-free news, restaurant visits, recipes, and dining hints from around the state.
Kelly states, “I was always searching for restaurants where I could safely eat the french fries and have something other than lemon sorbet for dessert. Now, there are lots of places to do that, and it’s really exciting. My goal is to connect gluten-free consumers with businesses that are working hard to accommodate us.”
