Dunkin’ Donuts prepares gluten-free bakery items

Canton, Mass. – Dunkin’ Donuts plans to start offering gluten-free bakery items by the end of this year. Participating U.S. Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants will have the option to offer certified gluten-free bakery products, including a new gluten-free cinnamon sugar donut and a gluten-free blueberry muffin. Both items are certified gluten-free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization, prepared in a dedicated facility and individually packaged. The suggested retail price for the gluten-free cinnamon sugar donut will be $1.89 and $2.39 for the gluten-free blueberry muffin.

“Our culinary and commercialization teams have worked very hard to create these new gluten-free menu items to be just as delicious as all of our product offerings,” said Stan Frankenthaler, executive chef and VP of product information for Dunkin’ Brands in a statement on the Dunkin’ Donuts website. “It took a great deal of experimentation to come up with the correct, unique blend of rice flours and certain starches such as potato and tapioca to replace traditional wheat flour.”
