Chick-fil-A adds gluten-free bun

According to a news release, the gluten-free bun comes individually packaged and can be ordered with any of the chain’s sandwiches.

Chick-fil-A says it’s of the few quick-service restaurants to offer a gluten-free bun.

“The Gluten-Free Bun is made with premium ingredients, including ancient grains quinoa and amaranth. It is enriched with vitamins and minerals and is lightly sweetened with molasses and raisins,” according to Chick-fil-A’s website.

Since the gluten-free buns are individually packaged, guests must assemble their own sandwiches to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. Chick-fil-A kitchens are not gluten-free.

The new bun has 150 calories and costs an extra $1.15.
