A year or more ago, we started a petition on Spark for a gluten free menu.
Spark took a consensus of opinion from the general population of Spark.
The response was that those who didn't have a gluten problem, thought its wasn't a worthy idea... wasn't needed.
So a gluten free menu was nixed on the grounds that it was too difficult for Spark to come up with a balanced nutritional menu (which was why we wanted one in the first place) for such a small segment of the larger Spark membership.
And that an insufficient number of people who don't have gluten issues, supported the idea in their Polls.
The work around Spark suggested is that we create our own menus, substituting things like quinoa and rice, for wheat, rye, barley. The Spark Library has quite a few commercial prepared gluten free items on in their food library, and you're free to create your own food list as well as take from the foods shared by other Sparkers.
Not a bad deal when you get right down to it... I understand why Spark wouldn't want to devote its resources for such a small segment of its membership. But it was a disappointment.
Good health to you!
