For people with a hectic lifestyle and no time to cook, a meal delivery service provides an opportunity to eat hot, fresh meals at home in just minutes. People following specific diets or suffering from food allergies must carefully select a meal delivery service that meets their specific dietary needs. In fact, there are just a few nationwide diet delivery plans for gluten-free food.


Defined as a "protein found in wheat, rye and barley" by USA Today, gluten can be found in a wide variety of foods. In fact, gluten is the main substance that gives wheat and other foods their chewy texture. Gluten is also found in a wide variety of non-food products, including vitamins, lip balms and medications.

Gluten-Free Diet

People following a gluten-free diet must eliminate gluten from their diets. A gluten-free diet eliminates wheat, rye, barley, flour, grains, cereals, pastas and processed foods, among several others. Most meats, rice, fruits and vegetables are safe to eat. However, people following a gluten-free diet should carefully inspect the ingredient list of any food they wish to consume.

Celiac Disease

Commonly referred to as a "gluten intolerance," celiac disease is defined by the Mayo Clinic as "a digestive condition triggered by consumption of the protein gluten." When a person with celiac disease consumes gluten-containing products, his immune system reacts to the substance by damaging the inner lining of the small intestine. Since most of the body's nutrient absorption takes place in the small intestine, these nutrients are often unable to be absorbed. As a result, the person becomes malnourished. After consuming gluten, a person with celiac disease experiences symptoms of abdominal bloating, pain, diarrhea, constipation and vomiting. If left untreated, celiac disease can lead to permanent intestinal damage and serious illness.
