Ed’s Easy Diner has announced that its kitchens are now set up to produce a separate gluten-free menu.
The brand also says it has become the first burger chain in the UK to be accredited by Coeliac UK, the national charity for people with coeliac disease.
The gluten-free menu will be available across all the company’s 35 diners, offering approximately 85% of the same dishes as on the regular menu.
Ed’s will serve the menu from breakfast to dinner, with gluten-free buns for burgers and hot dogs, both served with the option of fries as well as a selection of malt-free milkshakes and three gluten-free desserts.
Andrew Guy, chief executive of Ed’s Easy Diner, said: “We’re proud to offer an industry benchmark for gluten-free dining. As one of the UK’s fastest-growing restaurant chains, it’s important to us to keep our diners’ needs in mind and work to provide as many options for our customers with specific dietary requirements as we can.”
Coeliac UK is continuing to work with the catering industry to encourage the development of good quality menu choices for people with coeliac disease.
