NY Bagel Cafe & Deli, the breakfast and lunch franchise, announced today that it will begin serving gluten free bagels and breads in its locations. With the recent increase in people being diagnosed with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, gluten free diets have been researched by doctors from all avenues of the nutritional spectrum. Gluten free diets can have a variety of health benefits such as improving cholesterol levels, promoting digestive health, and an increase in energy levels if you have a gluten intolerance.
What is Gluten?
Gluten is a protein that is found in food such as cereals, certain grains and wheat.The main purpose of gluten is to keep the elasticity intact in dough during the fermentation process helping it rise
and keep its shape. Gluten makes bread chewy and prevents other foods from having a sticky, dough-like texture.
True gluten is a composite of gliadin and glutenin which is conjoined with starch in the endosperm of various grass related grains. The stored proteins of rice and corn are sometimes referred to as glutens, but their proteins differ from true gluten.
About 1 in 133 people in developed nations have intolerance to gluten. Gluten sensitivity is classified as an “intolerance”, not an “allergy”. Between 0.5 and 1 percent of people in the US and UK are sensitive to gluten due to celiac disease which constitutes an abnormal immune reaction to partially digested gliadin.
What products will be Gluten-Free?
NY Bagel Cafe will have an extensive line of gluten free products including:
The gluten free items require special manufacturing procedures and ingredients in their production. Because of this, the roll out may take some time reach all franchise locations. NY Bagel Cafe is committed to making sure all franchise locations offer the new gluten free products.
About NY Bagel Cafe & Deli
NY Bagel Cafe & Deli is the brainchild of Joseph Smith, an enterprising upstate New Yorker who saw the opportunities back in 1994 for making inroads in the franchise fast-food market. Take a proven commodity – everyone’s favorite “light” meal, the bagel – and then take it one step further. Offer the original New York bagel, and create a cornerstone for a bagel franchise … without the typical franchise bagel taste. Then structure the business for ease of investment and operation, and “spread the wealth” with other motivated self-starters.
You’ll find that NY Bagel Cafe & Deli runs rings around other bagel shops with a delicious array of complementary foods. Like popular Boar’s Head deli meats and cheeses, the smoothest flavored cream cheeses, succulent smoked salmon and richly brewed gourmet coffees. How about Panini sandwiches, popular wrap sandwiches, freshly prepared salads and fresh baked goods? We feature REAL NY Water Bagels and Bialys baked fresh every day.
Franchise opportunities are available nationwide. Come join us. We’re looking to “Spread the Wealth!”
