The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) will address the importance of offering gluten-free options in restaurants and tackle the "Top 8 Myths about Gluten-Free Menus" during an informational session at the 2013 National Restaurant Association Show on May 21.

Joining the presentation will be Chef Jehangir Mehta, a two-time contestant on Food Network's "The Next Iron Chef" and one of NFCA's chef ambassadors. Chef Mehta is the chef/owner of three restaurants: Graffiti Food & Wine Bar, Mehtaphor and Graffiti Me – all based in New York City.

"In the rush to introduce gluten-free options, many restaurants have neglected the due diligence and staff training that are so essential in protecting the health of celiac and gluten sensitive consumers. Our community is getting sick, and it all could be avoided with a few changes in protocols," says Beckee Moreland, director of gluten-free industry initiatives at NFCA, who will be leading the presentation with Chef Mehta.

The "Top 8 Myths about Gluten-Free Menus" will take place May 21 at McCormick Place in Chicago. NRA Show attendees can also visit NFCA at Booth #9336.
