Top iPhone apps for finding the nearest gluten-free restaurants or bakeries are great for celiac disease or food allergy diets, on iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad.



Eating Gluten Free just got Easier

Let’s face it- celiac disease diets don’t lend themselves to spontaneous eating. If you’re trying to cut out gluten, nuts, dairy, or any other allergens from your diet, then you need to read food product ingredient lists carefully while shopping for groceries and preparing gluten-free meals.

But if you have an iPhone, iPod, or iPad, then you have a wealth of gluten-free information at your fingertips!  With the latest iPhone apps on iTunes, you can easily look up gluten-free recipes, the nearest gluten-free restaurants, gluten-free bakeries, and thousands of other eating establishments that serve specially prepared pizza, bread, cakes, and other baked goods for people with celiac disease or other gluten intolerance.

Here is the first part of our list, the 10 Best iPhone Apps for Celiac Disease.  Stay tuned for the second part, including list items #6-10, tomorrow!
