If you’re avoiding gluten, Chick-fil-A has your back: The new Gluten-Free Bun will have you ditching the fork for a sandwich. Made with ancient grains instead of rice flour and sweetened with molasses and raisins, “what it lacks in gluten, the new bun makes up for in flavor,” says Christy Cook, Chick-fil-A chef and Dietician.
“I don’t have a gluten sensitivity, but I swap out the regular bun for a Gluten-Free one every once in a while,” she says.
While the new bun is the only certified “gluten-free” option on the menu (Chick-fil-A kitchens are not considered to be gluten-free for anyone with Celiac or a greater sensitivity), there are a lot of options that do not include wheat-based ingredients.
