Gluten Free Product Reviews
There are companies popping up all the time who manufacture gluten free food products. There are also those foods that are not labelled gluten free, however by reading the ingredients on the labels you will find that they are in fact gluten free friendly.
Want to know what brand of baked beans are gluten free, which is the best flour mix or which gluten free bread tastes the least like cardboard?
Then look no further as below you will find a number of reviews of gluten free food products. Be sure to let me know if you agree or not and if you have found a great product you want to share.
There are a number of products I eat/trial on a regular basis that don’t really warrant an entire blog post so I have decided to have a monthly product wrap-up.
This month I thought I’d run through a couple of products that I eat on a daily basis.
1. Country Life Low GI bread
Bread is one thing that never seems to be the same when it is gluten free, however luckily for all the coeliacs and gluten intolerant people out there, there are a couple of companies that have produced some breads which are getting closer. One of More >
I was recently introduced to the company Syndian, a company who produce completely natural products, meaning no additives, supplements, enhancers, emulsifiers, flavorings, binders, preservatives coloring or boosters! Now it wasn’t this that attracted me to their products, it was the fact that because their products are natural it means that they are gluten free. They are also vegetarian and mostly dairy free and vegan.
I stocked up on some of the burger patties and bites when I visited their factory shop in Mulgrave, NSW to store in the freezer for quick and easy More >
I had a bit of free time on the weekend and decided I wanted to do some baking. Mum suggested that I bake something that could be put in the freezer for Christmas time as she is starting to freak out a little with all the baking she has to do as we are hosting Christmas this year, and with all the family in NZ they wont be able to bring any baking with them!
I also liked this idea as it meant that it would be gluten free – as not all of the Christmas baking is going to be More >
I was recently introduced to pilpel dips during our Melbourne Cup lunch at work. Having coeliac and gluten and dairy intolerant employees always makes these kind of work functions a challenge, however we always manage to have an amazing spread of food. Our Melbourne Cup lunch was no different with bread (gluten free and glutenous), crackers, antipasto items including sundried tomatoes, ham, salami and olives, prawns and a selection of pilpel dips.
pilpel dips are all gluten and dairy free simply because the chef believes that you shouldn’t add anything to food that’s not essential to the flavour. At our More >
My work colleague and I recently went on a road trip to a new business presentation for a company, which among their own range of products, also distribute a number of gluten free products. As the trip takes an hour or so we decided to purchase a snack from their factory outlet for the way home. We chose Simply Wize’s Corn Crunch, lightly salted crunchy corn kernels, as we thought they would be the easiest to eat without making a mess.
The corn is very tasty and crunchy and it didn’t take long for my work colleague and I to finish More >
For those of you who know me well I am a bit of a fitness freak, riding to and from work (16 very hilly km’s) three days a week among many other outdoor activities. I found that I was hungry all the time and therefore decided, as a start, to revisit what I was having for breakfast. My nutritionist suggested that I try having a Body for Women protein shake before I started off on my bike ride to work.
The shakes, which clearly state they are gluten free, come in five different flavours; Summer Berries, Banana Smoothie, More >
