ASK Italian has become the latest restaurant chain to receive the official No Gluten Containing Ingredients (NGCI) accreditation from Coeliac UK for its gluten-free range. 

The accreditation, given to Pizza Express​ last month, is given to restaurants who not only offer gluten-free dishes but also ensure that there are appropriate controls in place to avoid contamination when preparing food.

ASK Italian said it had worked closely with the charity for the last year to come up with a wide selection of gluten-free dishes. As well as offering gluten-free pizza bases and pasta, the chain offers a range of other options such as Insalata Caprese, Risotto Con Gamberoni and a flour-less chocolate cake. 

Steve Holmes, managing director for ASK Italian said: “Eating away from home is a huge challenge for people with coeliac disease and we have seen a growing demand from customers looking for safe and delicious choices when trying to avoid gluten. To be able to offer a full and varied menu stands us apart from other high street restaurants”.

Coeliac UK chief executive, Sarah Sleet, who added: "We are working with the catering industry to help them deliver good quality menu choices for people with coeliac disease and are delighted that Ask Italian is recognising the importance of catering for this market.”
