(special to cleveland.com) By Hannah Drown, cleveland.com [email protected] CLEVELAND, Ohio - News on the gluten-free world used to be something I had to intentionally search for. But lately it's been showing up in my inbox and on my news feed without any intent. It's great, as knowledge is power as we try to navigate life with a restricted diet. Here's some interesting news to share from the past few weeks: Insensitive Super Bowl ad: If you paid attention to the Super Bowl ads this year you may have seen one you found insulting. Party City aired an ad that called people who eat a gluten-free diet gross and the backlash was immediate. The company issued an apology, has since pulled the ad online and plans to make a donation for celiac disease research. Looking for some sweet treats?: Valentine's Day is Wednesday. If you haven't figured out what to give to your Valentine and his or her sweet tooth you're in luck. Here's a compilation of local businesses offering gluten-free treats I put together for the holiday last year. A new dedicated menu: I've always been impressed by the attention management at Melt Bar & Grilled gives to ensuring gluten-free diners can eat risk-free. I mean, it's a grilled cheese restaurant. They've made it even better, with a dedicated menu listing only the gluten-free options making for an easier dining experience. King Cake recipe: If you weren't aware, today is Fat Tuesday. Chances are you haven't had the opportunity to indulge in a King Cake yet but it's not too late. Check out this recipe for a gluten-free version that looks as tasty as it does colorful. Gluten-free food cost more: This is probably not news for the majority of readers but the statistics are staggering. This article details some interesting study findings, such as the fact that gluten-free foods were found to be 159 percent more expensive than gluten-containing options. It also touches on the nutritional deficiencies that arise from the modifications needed to make items gluten-free. Have you found any interesting gluten-free food news? Let me know in the comments.
