Usage Example: “Do you offer a gluten-free menu at this Golden Corral?”
Background: Gluten is a protein composite with a massive public relations problem.
Gluten is found in wheat and related grains, and is perceived by a segment of the global population as the root of all evil. While the history of the gluten-free diet is hazy, it appears to have been invented in actress Gwyneth Paltrow’s diet lab in 2003.
Due to the popularity of the gluten-free diet, a growing number of food manufacturers are offering strange and disturbing gluten-free versions of once great foods.
The gluten-free diet should not be confused with the “free-gluten diet” (comprised mostly of Olive Garden bread sticks) which is awesome.
