No, but the OP was asking for cities with the most options...not any options.

I don't think a city has to be "progressive" to have grocers or restaurants with gluten free options. I've been to small towns and have seen gluten free products on store shelves.

More and more people are being diagnosed with Celiac disease https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/un...eliac-disease/ and need to have access to gluten free food no matter what size their city is or how hip their city may be.

This video is hilarious. Jimmy Kimmel Show asking people on the street if they eat gluten, and then asking if they know what it is.

Just don't eat wheat. Gluten is only in wheat.

I've never tasted or eaten any city, so I don't know which are gluten free.

Not hardly. This isn't even a complete list.

So, just don't eat what's on the list.

Whatever you don't want to eat, you can find those options wherever you live.

I am just curious what the OP expects in a gluten-free friendly city? Even in my po-dunk tiny town in the middle of nowhere, there is a health food store with paleo wraps, for instance.

So, just don't buy anything with wheat or corn or whatever. Seriously, this is just so silly.

Just to clarify a few posts in this thread - there are reasons some may want to avoid corn, but it does not contain gluten. There are plenty of gluten-free food options virtually everywhere, but in some small communities the choices when dining out can be limited. Most items on the periphery of grocery stores are naturally gluten free, and are the best source for most of our caloric intake.

Not addressing you, boney89, as I don't know your circumstances, but I've worked in the health field, and eating gluten-free has become somewhat of a "fad." There have been many studies done, and for the most part, there are no health benefits for those who choose to eat this way, as opposed to those that should eat this way. Here's an interesting article...one of many, many that can be found on the Internet.

5 things you didn
Thank you. People have been eating gluten since the beginning of time without any negative effects. The people who have real problems with gluten are those with celiac disease, and that is very rare.

When you are with a normal person who demands to eat gluten-free food, realize that you are dealing with an idiot.
