Chick-fil-A Announces A Gluten-Free Option

Chick-fil-A just announced a new gluten-free bun, made with quinoa and amaranth, flavored with molasses and raisins, and dusted with cornmeal on top. 

The bun was tested in three cities across the U.S. last year and is now being rolled out to all stores.

Chick-fil-A's senior consultant of menu development, Leslie Nesage says, "The texture of the bun is not too heavy and most similar to a muffin...soft and springy, not crumbly or dry. It tastes good eaten right out of the package and does not require toasting."

The bun would most likely be ordered with grilled chicken, since the fried chicken contains bread crumbs.

However, if you order gluten-free, everything comes pre-packaged and YOU have to assemble it. 

That's because kitchens at Chick-fil-A are not gluten-free and they want to make sure your food doesn't accidentally get contaminated. 

Each part of the new sandwich is certified to be free of gluten, but it does cost an extra $1.15 on top of your normal sandwich.
