Gluten Free Awareness Training

Gluten Free Awareness Training 

Food & Beverage Course

Gluten Free Singapore and Phoon Huat are pleased to announce an educational collaboration for Food and Beverage professionals in Singapore.

The specialty diet market in Singapore continues to grow and the number of gluten-free requests at restaurants, hotels and cafes are increasing for both Singapore guests and foreign travelers. 

Is your staff comfortable to serve guests with dietary restrictions? Accommodating gluten-free guests goes beyond omitting bread or just adding a few options to the menu; the whole team needs to understand gluten and work together to serve a safe meal.

  • Who are your gluten-free guests and why accommodating them is beneficial for your business.
  • Gluten basics: what is gluten, where is it be found, and what is gluten-free.
  • Cross contamination and keeping gluten out of gluten-free meals
  • Protocol for minimizing the possibility of mistakes and best practices for how to fix problems.
  • Bringing in gluten-free supplies and proper storage & handling
  • Menu planning, simple substitutions, adaptions and steps to easily prepare gluten-free meals
