Gluten Free Kitchen Tips
Following these gluten free kitchen tips to keep your kitchen safe:
Tip 1: Label. Labeling refrigerator and pantry shelves in your gluten free kitchen or gluten aware kitchen so others can easily identify foods as their foods gluten- free. The simple act of marking gluten-free foods, items, and spaces with these visible, easy-to-use labels and tags ensures that the home is a safer space for someone diagnosed with Celiac Disease.
Tip 3: Educate your house guests on gluten and gluten cross-contamination possibilities. A quick gluten 101 lesson could go a long way in keepingyour gluten free kitchen safe.
Tip 4: Purchase a second, gluten free toaster. Place the silicon tag (oven safe) around the lever to designate it as gluten free territory in your gluten free kitchen.
Tip 5: Buy a second, gluten free strainer. Attach a gluten free tag to it.
Tip 6: Label your condiment jars or containers (so a gluten contaminated utensil doesn’t get dipped into your mustard, jam, cream cheese, or peanut butter). The circle labels work especially well for the tops of jars!
Tip 8: Purchase separate sets of utensils for gluten free food preparation. Place these utensils in a separate drawer marked with a gluten free label.
Tip 9: Dedicate a separate set of baking equipment (serving spoons, wooden spoons, and sifter) for gluten free baking. Attach a gluten free tag to the sifter and stick all utensils in your gluten free-labeled drawer.
Tip 10: Use separate pots and pans for gluten free cooking. Attach gluten free tags to these. They are oven safe!
