BIBIBOP Asian Grill is all about well-being and that focus includes providing guests with a healthy, delicious, and safe menu. In 2018, BIBIBOP set a goal to become a 100% Gluten-Free restaurant and today the brand announced that all BIBIBOP Asian Grill restaurants have been certified as gluten-free.
“We want to take care of gluten-free guests by offering a safe place to eat and an entire menu of food choices that focus on their health,” said BIBIBOP Senior Director of Marketing Henry Yonky.
The gluten-free diet is a necessity for the nearly three-million Americans living with celiac disease, while many others have chosen to eat gluten-free as part of a healthier lifestyle. According to the FDA, gluten-free foods have less than 20 parts per million of gluten, a mixture of proteins that occur naturally in wheat, rye, and barley. A gluten-free diet may help with weight loss, improved gastrointestinal health, and increased energy levels.
As part of their effort to become 100% Gluten-Free, BIBIBOP worked with the Gluten Intolerance Group to earn their Gluten Free Food Service certification as a Validated Gluten-Free Safe Spot.
“At the Gluten Intolerance Group, our mission is to make life easier for everyone living gluten-free, which is why we are thrilled to welcome BIBIBOP as a Validated Gluten-Free Safe Spot,” said GFFS Program Manager Lindsey Yeakle. “The gluten-free community has many challenges when dining away from home, but with Safe Spots, like BIBIBOP, offering balanced and healthy Asian cuisine, gluten-free consumers can dine out with confidence.”
According to GFFS research, 98% of gluten-free diners surveyed felt safer eating at a Validated Gluten-Free Safe Spot.
“It’s important that guests know we are here to take care of them,” said Yonky. “If they are gluten-sensitive, or even just focused on eating better, we want them to know that BIBIBOP is all about their well-being.”
