Is there anything nicer than a back garden BBQ in the summer sun?
For people living with coeliac disease, hosting or attending a BBQ can be a little nerve wracking. With the relaxed atmosphere and some unfamiliar foods, they may worry about accidently eating gluten. We’ve teamed up with Aldi to bring you some simple gluten free summer recipes plus our top tips on avoiding cross contamination.
- Remember all fresh fruit and vegetables are naturally gluten free. Make some colourful salads and side dishes all guests can enjoy.
- Watch out for foods that contain unexpected or hidden gluten such as breadcrumbs used to make burgers or sauces, condiments, and alcohol. Check the Coeliac Society Food List for suitable brands.
- If you’re a guest, let the host know which foods you can and cannot eat. Lots of barbeque favourites are gluten free such as fresh meat and fish (without fillings or marinades).
