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.
Once of my New Year’s resolutions this year was to try and avoid foods with preservatives, thickeners and artificial colours, flavours and sweeteners. Generally this means going back to basics and making things yourself. However if you look around there are a number of these products available.
I was looking for a healthy afternoon snack one day and decided on a carrot with hummus. I was going to make hummus from scratch until I worked out it was going to cost me just as much if not more to make it myself. I therefore started having a look at the hummus More >
Ever since I can remember my Mum has had an Easiyo yoghurt maker. As a kid I have to say I didn’t really like the yoghurt she made as I have always had a sweet tooth and Mum always made the Natural unsweetened one.
However, more recently I have been buying Jalna’s Fat Free Natural yoghurt to eat with frozen berries as suggested by my dietitian. While I enjoy the Jalna yoghurt I have found it rather expensive to be eating 200g every day.
The other day when I saw Mum making Easiyo yoghurt I suddenly wondered whether Easiyo had a fat free More >
One day during the holidays we decided to have people over for brunch. We were having bacon and eggs but Mum also made some apple and oat muffins which weren’t gluten free. I therefore decided to make up the Vitarium Crumpet Mix I had in the cupboard.
I made the crumpets the night before because you have to let them sit for 90mins. However you are supposed to toast them before you eat them so it didn’t matter.
The crumpets were amazing, even the non coeliacs of the family said they tasted like crumpets. To prove how good they are More >
All those that have to follow a gluten free diet (and probably most of their family and friends) know that finding a good gluten free bread is pretty much impossible. I was under this impression until yesterday at lunch, when I decided to make a sandwich using the Chia Seed loaf Lifestyle Bakery sent me.
As I always do (with gluten free bread) I went to toast the bread for my sandwich. I find this makes gluten free bread bearable to eat. However, just as I was about to do so, I thought I might just try a bit of the More >
I recently received a package in the mail from Lifestyle Bakery, who have a number (20 to be exact) of gluten free products including bread, muffins, pizza bases, and seasonal products. They cater for a number of dietary requirements and therefore also have dairy free, soy free, yeast free, egg free etc products (you can search products on their website by dietary need here). The package I received contained a pack of Christmas puddings, bread crumbs and a loaf of their Chia Seed bread.
I was very excited to try the Christmas puddings having recently just made two Christmas cakes, a More >
I vividly remember on my very first trip to Australia (I lived in New Zealand for 16 years before moving to Sydney for those of you don’t know!) discovering Jelly Belly jellybeans. We were not lucky enough to have them in New Zealand at the time (or if we did they were stocked very sparsely) although from memory we got them a couple of years later.
My favourite flavour at the time was buttered popcorn and I also loved the toasted marshmellow, tutti frutti and liquorice flavours. I also loved trying the Jelly Belly Bean recipes.
I don’t often buy Jelly Belly More >
