Aberdeen Royal Infirmary’s hospital kitchen is now the first in Scotland to be certified gluten free – by preparing food separately at night.
The hospital was previously buying in gluten-free meals but now the dishes are being made on site. It is made at night to avoid risk of contamination from certain ingredients being used during the day.
ARI is the first hospital kitchen in Scotland to achieve the Coeliac UK accreditation.
