MIAMI, December 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
GRILLiT, Inc. ("GRILLiT" or the "Company") (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."
"GRILLiT is a fast-casual, health-conscious restaurant concept," said CEO Ghazi Hajj. "We continue to monitor the gluten and MSG content of products purchased from our vendors and distributors to ensure that our menu meets the highest standards of quality, is MSG free, and maintains well over 90% gluten-free menu items."
GRILLiT (GRLT) is a growing Latin-Caribbean fusion restaurant concept that marries fast casual to nutritious and healthy food. The company opened its first location in Miami in 2011 and specializes in chef-inspired custom crafted rice bowls, pasta and wraps as well as salads.
