UConn opens gluten-free bakery

The University of Connecticut has opened a new gluten-free bakery, which officials say they hope will eventually provide all cafes, residential dining halls and catering services with alternative baked goods.

The new facility, located in Trumbull House of the Towers Residence Halls complex, is the first ever gluten-free bakery on a college campus, according to a release. The bakery will make cookies, muffins, cakes, pies, brownies and rice crispy treats that will ultimately replace all gluten-free items currently sold on campus.

“We are going to start off with our versions of the stuff we are doing now,” Rob Landolphi—culinary manager at the Storrs, Conn., university—said in a statement. “We will put the stuff in the gluten-free galley fridges and see how it goes from there.”
