Restaurants Adding Gluten-Free Menu Items Avoid Rising Wheat Costs and Attract Health-Conscious Customers
4-minute read ---
You may have noticed the growing number of restaurants adding gluten-free menu options to their menus. This comes in response to growing customer demand for wheat-free items, usually from health-conscious customers allergic to wheat-based products.
In addition, recently many restaurants have begun moving away from wheat-based items as they face higher costs due to supply chain shortages, caused in part by droughts in U.S. regions where wheat is grown and harvested.
