A few wise words from Jordan Brown, the owner of Hu Kitchen;
"The only items at Hu that have gluten are the beers. Prior to our being entirely gluten-free with our food options, the only gluten we had existed in two sandwich breads. The plan was always to go gluten-free once we had perfected our own grain-free/paleo bread. We think we did that, so we eliminated the two grain breads.
We approach gluten-free as a necessity - not because it is a fad. Many companies are exploiting "gluten-free" so they can stick it on the label and exploit the customer perception that it is healthy. We've seen iced tea bottles and highly-processed mac-n-cheese items with "Gluten-Free" on it. Duh. We actually think that gluten is toxic - for ALL human beings. We see gluten sensitivity as a continuum - celiac on one end, and asymptomatic on the other. We believe that everybody is affected by gluten for the worse and is drastically better off (and feel and look better!) when it is eliminated from the diet.
We take a different approach to cooking gluten-free. We don't use bizarre "natural" ingredients and inundate recipes with sugar to re-create/replicate gluten. For example, our bread approach was to start with vegetables, and create a bread from that instead of grains. Same idea for our grain-free muffins - we started with coconut flour and spent time perfecting a gluten-free and grain-free masterpiece (we think!)."
