There’s a lot of talk lately about gluten-free food and for good reason. Gluten is a composite of the proteins gliadin and glutenin and it’s most commonly found in wheat and other types of grains.

The gliadin part of gluten is the part people typically react badly to. When you eat it and it arrives in your digestive tract, the cells of your immune system may treat it as if it’s a foreign invader—as if it’s bacteria.

This is particularly true for people who have Celiac Disease—who are allergic to gluten—and for people who are not necessarily allergic to gluten, but are sensitive to it. Cocina Azul in Albuquerque provides a number of gluten-free options to meet your dietary needs and concerns.

Gluten-Free in Albuquerque

Eating foods containing gluten when you have a gluten allergy or even just gluten sensitivity can cause your intestinal wall to degenerate, leading to anemia, digestive issues, fatigue, nutrient deficiencies and other maladies.

For this reason and others, Cocina Azul offers its patrons some of Albuquerque’s best gluten-free Mexican food.

Many of our delicious menu items can be ordered as gluten-free—from chips and salsa, to guacamole salad, to any of our delicious platters served with corn instead of flour tortillas.

It should be noted, however, that while we do offer gluten-free items, our kitchen is not gluten-free. If you have an extreme allergy, please let your server know so that we can take extra precautions in the preparation of your food.

Let us help you eat well while still eating for your health, here in Albuquerque. Gluten-free Mexican food doesn’t have to taste less amazing that Mexican food that contains gluten.
