And they said it wouldn’t last…..that the gluten-free market was going to implode…thank goodness they were wrong. Gluten-free products are being rolled out by many companies these days and our community is right there supporting their incredible efforts.
Expo West is coming up in just a couple of weeks where many companies will debut their new gluten-free products. This Examiner can’t wait to one of many to get to taste and blog about them.
Listed below is what this Examiner learned over the past two weeks
- AtlantaFresh Artisan Creamery has added a new flavor to its line of yogurt flavors: Chocolate Rocket, which is a Mexico City style chocolate
- Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse just added gluten-free beer to their already impressive gluten-free offering. They are selling Daura, which is a gluten-free beer that is being imported from Spain.
- Kellogg’s is getting into the gluten-free market soon by introducing gluten-free brown rice krispies. This new was broke by Gluten Free Appetite and more details can be found on their site.
- Late July’s line of organic, gluten-free chips in three flavors can be found locally at Return to Eden. Late July doesn’t make any other gluten-free products, so it is good to know these chips are certified gluten free and contain 100% whole grains. This Examiner tried the Sea Salt version and liked them, but thought they could use more salt.
- Moe’s Southwest Grill has added a gluten-free corn tortilla to its menu in certain locations. The tortilla is quite small, but you can now order fajitas and request corn tortillas and order your burrito fillings separate and make your own burrito at your table. More details on the new corn tortilla can be found from Gluten Free Glutton. It isn’t clear if they are making the tortilla, or bringing it in from another company. There aren’t a lot of details on how the corn tortilla is being heated and kept free of cross contamination either.
- Nature’s Path has just released Mesa Sunrise with Raisins in an Eco Pack – ingredients: Corn meal*, yellow corn flour*, raisins* (coated with sunflower oil*), evaporated cane juice*, flax*, buckwheat flour*, quinoa*, amaranth*, sea salt, tocopherols (natural Vitamin E). *Organic. Produced in a facility that uses peanuts, tree nuts and soy. Also, the Eco Packs have changed sizes are now smaller and easier to store. This new flavor can be purchased locally at Return to Eden and other stores.
- Olde World Artisan Bread Company’s gluten-free bread products can be found locally at Return to Eden and now at Atlantis Natural Foods. The company just launched a website too, so you can learn more about the types of gluten-free bread being made by Thomas
