Rice on the Menu
The number of people living a gluten-free lifestyle is on the rise, and providing more gluten-free meal options on your menu can help drive new and repeat traffic. U.S.-grown rice, naturally gluten-free and the least allergenic of all grains, is the perfect foundation for creating a variety of gluten-free meals that are nutritious, global and on trend.
