About this app

WHAT'S NEW
Let’s Fly! Find gluten-free options at airports around the world. Every eatery in each airport is listed, along with the location within that airport, a short description, your safest option and an overall rating. Never fly hungry again (but pack some snacks just in case!)

QUICK OVERVIEW
Find over 5,000 vetted restaurants (more added daily), GF options at airports and stadiums, 50 coupons to online companies, the best vacation spots, and lots more.

DETAILED OVERVIEW
Living a 100% gluten-free life has its challenges. Which restaurants can I eat at and not get sick? How do I save money on gluten-free food? Where can I find safe food at airports? Where do I get answers to my questions about dealing with celiac disease? How do I connect with others who understand? The Gluten Dude alleviates these challenges and more.

CHALLENGE: EATING OUT SAFELY
Eating out is one of the more stressful parts of having celiac disease. Everything that is fun and spontaneous about eating out can be overshadowed by the anxiety of whether you can get through your meal unscathed.

SOLUTION: A directory of 100% gluten-free restaurants, guaranteeing you a safe meal.

The app also includes restaurants that are not 100% GF but 1) have been recommended by someone in the celiac community; 2) have been personally vetted by the Gluten Dude team; and 3) take precautions to minimize the possibility of cross-contamination. NEW RESTAURANTS ADDED EVERY DAY.

CHALLENGE: SAVING MONEY ON GLUTEN-FREE FOOD
Quality gluten-free food is expensive and hard to find. Did you know there are over 150 awesome GF companies that will ship right to your doorstep?

SOLUTION: A directory of every one of these online companies, with a description of who they are and what they sell. Over 50 of these companies are offering online coupons just for app users!!!

-----

CHALLENGE: FINDING GLUTEN-FREE FOOD AT AIRPORTS
Flying can be such a pain if you have celiac disease. What if your flight is delayed? What if you forgot to pack snacks?

SOLUTION: A directory of hundreds of airports with a list of every eatery at those airports and your best bet for finding gluten-free food at each.

-----


CHALLENGE: GETTING THE RIGHT INFORMATION ABOUT LIVING WITH CELIAC DISEASE
Getting diagnosed with celiac disease is overwhelming. The internet is littered with falsehoods and dangerous info regarding celiac disease & living gluten-free. People are looking for answers to their problems and they are not sure where to turn.

SOLUTION: The Gluten Dude app has a forum with hundreds of ongoing discussions. Ask a question and get the right answers from people who have been in your shoes.

-----

CHALLENGE: CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE WHO ‘GET IT’
Celiac disease is a very misunderstood disease and can be quite isolating. I've received hundreds of emails over the years from people whose own friends and family don't take their disease seriously; who don't get invited out because they're "too difficult"; who are bullied at school simply because they can't eat gluten. And most of the time, there is no one there to turn to, to listen to you, to understand you.

SOLUTION: The Gluten Dude app allows you to privately connect with others who have celiac disease thru private one on one chat

-----

CHALLENGE: FINDING GLUTEN-FREE BEER
Beer is not gluten-free. The most popular "gluten-free" beers on the market today are actually "gluten-removed" and are not safe to drink. There are a handful of amazing 100% gluten-free beers out there, but they can be difficult to find.

SOLUTION: The Gluten Dude app shows thousands of stores, bars and restaurants where people can purchase gluten-free beer.

Not many options in my area, but so much useful information. If I ever travel anywhere this app will be incredibly helpful... or if my city steps it up. I highly recommend the lifetime membership for anyone with Celiac Disease.

Thanks for the kind review. We vet/add restaurants daily so keep the faith that some will be added in your area soon enough. Please contact me and let me know what city you live in.

I travel for work and was in Denver CO. I went to Ted's Montana Grill and got take out. Not only was the food fantastic (best burger ever!!), but the bartender treated me as if I was a regular and had been sitting at the bar for hours. Offered me water while I waited for my food and asked if I needed utensils which I didn't even think about. I would not have found this place if not for the app. Thank you sooooo much!!!

Excellent app that is worth the money. I've tried so many free apps and services to help find places to eat, and they are always hit or miss with being actually gluten free or accomodating it. I have gone to a dozen restaurants recommended on this app and every one has been fantastic.
