Gluten Free Eateries in Norfolk

1 in 100 people in the UK has coeliac disease and following a strict gluten free diet is essential; even a tiny amount of gluten could be very harmful to their health. There are also a large number of people who don’t have coeliac disease but choose to eat foods free from gluten and/or wheat for various reasons, so all restaurants and cafés really should be catering for these groups. Over the past 15 years awareness of the disease has greatly improved, with more and more people being diagnosed. Finding eateries that offer gluten free alternatives is definitely becoming easier, but there is still room for improvement.
