United Airlines announced it will introduce new items to its in-flight menu, including various gluten-free products, beginning March 1.

The airline will switch to gluten-free salad dressing in first class on flights from the United States to various destinations in North and Central America. The carrier already offers gluten-free soup on most of these flights.

United also added items to its Classic, Savory, and Tapas snack boxes. At least half of the items in each box are now gluten-free, and beginning this spring, the Tapas snack box will be completely gluten-free.

The airline also switched from regular yogurt to Greek yogurt in first-class on flights from the United States to various cities in North and Central America. In addition, United’s p.s. flights between New York’s JohnF.KennedyInternationalAirport and Los Angeles, as well as between JFK and San Francisco, will begin offering Chobani Flip Greek yogurt this spring.

United expanded its wine offerings in economy class on flights between the United States and Europe. Passengers now have the option of purchasing two different wines, Meiomi Pinot Noir 2012 and Murphy-Goode North Coast 2012 Sauvignon Blanc.
