Market News Developments and updates for 2013's Top Food Companies : GRILLiT, Inc. (OTC: GRLT), Whole Foods Market, Inc. (NASDAQ: WFM), The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAIN), The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) and The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE: KO).
GRILLiT, Inc. (OTC: GRLT) today announced that over 90% of their menu options are gluten-free. The Latin-Caribbean fusion fast-casual restaurant chain sees its gluten-free menu options as part of its commitment to providing its customers with healthy, fresh and tasty options.
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."
