Food Allergy Information: Gluten

You’ve probably heard quite a bit about gluten free diets and gluten lately.

First, what is gluten? Gluten is a protein found in rye, wheat and barley.  Gluten is found in more than just breads, pastas, and wheat products.  In fact, gluten is often times used as a binder in sauces, dressings and more!

Are you interested in cooking for someone with gluten sensitivity or Celiac Disease? Here are some of our favorite recipes:

Gluten Free Dairy Free Chocolate Peppermint Squares from GlutenFreeda.com. For instructions click here.

Chocolate Biscuit and Strawberries from Gluten Free Mommy. Click here for instructions.

Wondering how to make one of our meals gluten free?  Many of the meals within our Mexican Cookbook kit are gluten free by nature.  For some of our Chinese Cookbook kit meals, substitute Tamari (gluten free soy sauce) for your typical soy sauce. With our Italian recipes, substitute quinoa pastas and gluten free breads! Be sure to check all ingredients in our recipes and find a gluten free substitute to be sure your meal is 100% gluten free!

If you have more questions on which of our meals are already gluten free or how to make one of our recipes gluten free, post it on our facebook wall.

Happy cooking!
