GARCIA SOTO, Laura; MARTIN-MASOT, Rafael; NESTARES, Teresa  e  MALDONADO, José. Analysis of the gluten-free menus served in school canteens: are they balanced?. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2019, vol.36, n.4, pp.912-918.  Epub 17-Fev-2020. ISSN 1699-5198.

Introduction and objectives:

the alimentary profile and the nutritional value of the menus adapted for coeliacs in the dining halls of the schools of Granada capital and Metropolitan Area.

Material and methods:

descriptive study in which we analyzed the menus adapted for children from 41 schools, 5 with their own kitchen and 36 supplied by catering. The information is recognized through the technical sheets of the dishes made with the quantity of each food, in addition to the brands of the gluten-free products. The four-week menus will be analyzed in terms of the distribution of rations, energy, macro and micronutrients for the age group of 10 to 12 years, obtaining average values and standard deviation of 31 parameters. The Odimet program and the CeliacBase database are used. The data will be analyzed using the IBM SPSS 22.0 statistical program.


gluten-free pasta was the basis of the first course in 31.7% of the menus analyzed. In the second dish, the meat was the main constituent. In all the menus, at least one daily vegetable ration was offered. 80% of the menus did not reach the recommended energy intake, although the distribution of macronutrients was adequate. The average amount of fiber and total carbohydrates was higher than recommended. The amount of calcium and vitamin has not been recommended. It emphasizes a high consumption of sodium, which doubles the amount recommended for the midday meal.


school menus adapted for children conform to the recommendations, although they should be limited to intake.
