Convenience is sometimes a necessity, and apps have made the process of ordering food from restaurants much simpler. Now, more apps are recognizing the need to filter options for celiac disease, so gluten-free food is easier to find. Although it is still important to verify the gluten content at each restaurant, having a meal delivered to your door eliminates one item from the to-do list.


App developers are making online ordering a better process by allowing users to specifically search for food that meets their dietary restrictions. This saves time for people who are simply interested in getting their food delivered quickly. There are multiple apps that provide this service, and many of them go beyond gluten-free options by including paleo, dairy-free and other diets. You may want to consider apps from FindmeGlutenFree and GlutenFreePassport along with other options below.

Seamless offers user the ability to order through an app or through the website, and its services are free.

It is possible to search for multiple diet needs, or you can use the favorite foods ordered on Seamless option to see what others have liked.
