Is there a coeliac organisation?

World wide, there are many, however in Australia we have the Coeliac Australia organisation.

They support people with medically diagnosed Coeliac Disease or gluten intolerance.

They offer great advocacy toward food labelling laws, unprofessional food service and the rights of their members.

You can learn more by visiting their website (http://www.coeliac.org.au/) or looking at their FaceBook page (https://www.facebook.com/CoeliacAust/). @CoeliacAust

 

Will there be employment opportunities with Kiss My Gluten Free in the future?

We need to grow our business a little before we consider additional staff.

This depends entirely on how much people use our services.

Is there a Maps for Coeliacs App yet?

No, not at this point in time.    There are plans to publish a service that will be easily consumed by mobile devices in the future.  In the mean time, the best experience with Maps for Coeliacs is on a desktop computer.

What can I do with Maps for Coeliacs?

You can search for:

  • gluten free food outlets that are in our database,
  • locations and towns around the world,
  • View food outlets that are categorised by level of cross contamination risk. These are:
    • 100% Gluten Free
    • Gluten Safe, and
    • Gluten Aware.
  • Filter out the Categories you do not want to see on the map.  If you are a coeliac, you may be looking for 100% gluten free food outlets only, so you click the green button on the left.
  • Search within a distance of a known location to find outlets close to you.
  • Get directions from a known point to a selected restaurant, cafe or other type of food outlet.  This includes types of travel such as walking, driving and public transport.

An example of this may be if you are visiting London and you would like to know which GF outlets are within 30 minutes transit ride (public transport) of the British Museum.

This is great if you are unfamiliar with the place your are visiting and takes some of the stress away from eating safely.

Please refer to our video tutorial to learn more.

What do the different map markers mean?

There are four map markers used in Maps for Coeliacs.

These are:

  • 100% Gluten Free:  Food outlets assigned this category do not have any gluten on site.  They are safe for coeliacs.  This category carries no risk of cross contamination.
  • Gluten Safe:  A ‘mixed’ site.  They serve both gluten free and ‘gluten’ based foods.  They have, however been certified by Coeliac Australia or an equal national body in their country and will provide a coeliac safe meal.  This category carries next to no risk of cross contamination.
  • Gluten Aware:  The majority of food outlets provide gluten aware meals.  Most meals provided by this type of food outlet are not gluten free, but they can convert existing menu items or have a limited number of gluten free options on the menu.  This category carries the most risk of cross contamination.
  • Yet to be Classified:  Used then it is not known which of the three primary categories should be assigned to a food outlet.  If you see this map marker it implies that research is currently underway and it’s category is temporarily outstanding.

The information that is presented when you click on a food outlet marker has been obtained from potentially several different sources.  These may include:

  • A member of the the gluten free community,
  • Food outlet websites,
  • Food outlet Facebook pages,
  • Direct contact with the food outlets themselves (to confirm details or seek more information),
  • Third party reviewers, and
  • Google searches.
Where has the information come from that is presented in Maps for Coeliacs?

The information that is presented when you click on a GF map marker has been obtained from potentially several different sources.  These may include:

  • Google Searches,
  • Food outlet websites,
  • Food outlet Facebook pages,
  • Direct contact with the food outlets themselves (to confirm details or seek more information),
  • Third Party reviewers, and
  • You, the Gluten Free public.
In the future, will you have the ability to recommend food outlets?

Our Maps for Coeliacs provides a location, a description, contact information and links as well as review information (in the future) so that you can make your own mind up about whether to eat there or not.

You are also provided with a research portal for you to compare choices and decide for yourself.

We will not be specifically recommending food outlets.  Our role is to make you aware that they exist and provide you with as much information as you need to make an informed decision.

Will there be medical advice available on this site?

No.  If you require dietary advice or would like to discuss medical issues, please speak directly with your medical practitioners or dietitian.

In the future, will you be able to provide dietary advice for newbies?

We won’t be providing dietary advice, however we will have many recipes that you can choose from in our planned Recipe Library.

If you need specific dietary advice, we suggest you talk with your dietitian who will be more than capable of providing you with specific and tailored advice.

Is your recipe base tested?

We do not test the recipes ourselves.

They are provided by people like you who have found them to be successful.

For each recipe, we will be introducing and encouraging discussion and questions about how they worked for you and any tweaks you may have done to make them better.

How do I just view 100% Gluten Free places in Maps for Coeliacs?

By using the five buttons on the left of the Map View, you can filter out all those food outlets you do not want to see.

To view only 100% Gluten Free outlets, choose the top most button (with the green GF map marker) and all the other map markers from the other categories will disappear.

To make them all re-appear again, click on the bottom button that shows three different coloured map markers.
