Discount on the Nima gluten testing device for Wheat Belly followers

Nima testing for cross-contamination: “Gluten-free” is not always gluten-free

When a restaurant labels a dish “gluten-free,” can you count on that being true?

Sometimes you can. If they have a segregated area of the kitchen with separate cooking utensils, separate preparation and cooking surfaces, as well as ingredients that are gluten-free, then you can have pretty good confidence that the dish you order is safe. But if there is no such segregation you can never be entirely certain even if the food is not breaded, does not contain breadcrumbs, or is not served on wheat or rye bread. For some people, this can be a real problem.
