Hot dog! Coors Field offers gluten-free food
July 23, 2009
DENVER – Buy me some peanuts and gluten-free hot dogs? Yes, at Coors Field in Denver.
Food vendor Aramark said Thursday it is opening a gluten-free concession stand at the home of the Colorado Rockies.
Aramark says it’s believed to be the first such stand in the major leagues.
Gluten is a protein particle in wheat, barley, rye and their derivatives. It can trigger reactions in people with celiac disease.
In addition to hot dogs, the new stand’s gluten-free offerings include burgers, chicken sandwiches, brownies and, yes, beer.
