Our Registered Dietitians and Culinary team review each ingredient carefully to ensure that it can be used to create flavorful gluten-free dishes. From there, we work with our training team to teach the importance of understanding what gluten is, how to prepare gluten-free menu items, and best ways to serve the needs of our gluten-free guests. It’s important that we execute our gluten-free menu items flawlessly and understand the needs of our gluten-free guests from the minute they walk in the door to when they take their last bite.
Yes. All Outback seasonings are gluten-free.
We strive to offer gluten-free menu options, but do not have gluten-free kitchens. Because our dishes are prepared-to-order, during normal kitchen operations, individual foods may come into contact with one another due to shared cooking and preparation areas. Thus, we cannot guarantee that cross-contact with foods containing gluten will not occur; however, we take every step possible to prevent this.
Outback provides gluten-free education to all of its employees and has a protocol for each time a gluten-free menu item is ordered. This includes: hand washing, glove changing, using clean cooking equipment and utensils, and special ordering instructions for our chefs.
Outback works with a third party expert to oversee and validate our Gluten-Free Menu and processes, but the menu items do not have a gluten-free certification. We also have strong ties with the Gluten Intolerance Group. Their gluten experts help guide us in the right direction and keep us on top of gluten-related topics, consumer needs and scientific research.
