Sorry but this is just bothering the heck out of me. If you are plugged into the GF community you have probably heard by now that Domino's is offering a gluten free pizza crust with a huge disclaimer:
I am not bothered by the fact that Domino's is trying to jump into the GF market, what I am bothered by is the involvement of the National Foundation for CELIAC Awareness. If you watch closely, the NFCA has said the pre-packaged pizza crust is GF but has given Domino's an Amber Designation because of cross-contamination, "meaning those with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity should ask questions and exercise judgment when dining at an establishment with an Amber Designation."
I try to understand the whole gluten intolerant issue and why some think a little gluten is ok for those people, but the fact the NFCA (which is supposed to be for those of us with Celiac and if it is not then they should change their title) is involved really rubs me the wrong way.
Instead of certifying the pre-packaged pizza crust as GF and then offering a HUGE disclaimer, the NFCA should have said NO to this and then warned everyone with Celiac Disease not to eat the pizza.
It is already so hard for us that have Celiac Disease to figure out all of the ins and outs of cross-contamination. For a National Foundation that is supposed to be on our side to endorse this move by Domino's is really just wrong.
