Navigating a Super Bowl Celebration When Gluten-Free
If you're gluten-free, attending a Super Bowl party can be a little tricky, but with a few tips, you can ensure you still have a great time and enjoy delicious food. Here are a few suggestions to help you out:
- Offer to bring a dish: Bring a dish that you know is gluten-free, so you have something to eat and can share it with others. Consider bringing a pasta salad, a dip, or some gluten-free appetizers.
- Communicate with the host: Let the host know about your dietary restrictions and ask if they can accommodate your needs. They may have some gluten-free options or be willing to prepare something special for you.
- Try to go first in line and avoid seconds: Food can easily succumb to gluten cross-contact to be mindful of this if food is on a buffet.
- Read labels carefully: If you're unsure if a food item is gluten-free, check the label or ingredients list. Be mindful of hidden sources of gluten, such as soy sauce, malt vinegar, and seasonings.
- Bring your own snacks: It's always a good idea to have a backup plan, so bring some gluten-free snacks with you, just in case.
- Have a drink: Many alcoholic drinks, such as beer, contain gluten, so opt for gluten-free alternatives, such as wine, spirits, or gluten-free beer.
With these tips, you'll be able to enjoy the Super Bowl festivities while still sticking to your gluten-free diet and avoiding getting sick.

It depends on the party and if the host knows about your dietary restrictions. If you're unsure, plan on bringing some food for yourself or to share that is safe for you to eat.
Ask the host, or person who prepared the dish, specific questions about the recipe. If there are ingredient labels available, ask to see them. Ask about any hidden gluten ingredients, like soy sauce, malt vinegar, seasonings, etc.
Yes, of course! If you have a dietary restriction, any good host will be accommodating to this. You can let the host know you will bring a dish to pass or that you will be packing your own meal due to your dietary needs.
