Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
In the midst of increased awareness of celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, the new All But Gluten™ line of baked goods is reaching out to consumers who must avoid gluten for health reasons at the upcoming EAT Vancouver world-class Food and Cooking Festival. “Vancouver is known for its health-conscious population and progressive lifestyles, so EAT Vancouver is the ideal venue for the All But Gluten™ début,” says Sumit Luthra, Vice President Innovation with Weston Bakeries Limited.
All But Gluten™ is Weston Bakeries’ new brand of gluten-free baked goods that are sold fresh, not frozen, in the fresh bakery section. These great tasting and nutritious products were developed in consultation with international gluten-free nutrition expert and brand spokesperson Shelley Case, RD. All But Gluten™ product offerings include a hearty whole grain loaf, a delicious cinnamon raisin loaf, traditional white sliced loaf, savoury focaccia breads, tasty pizza shells, carrot raisin morning muffins, rich and moist chocolate brownies and perfectly baked coconut macaroons. Most of these baked goods are a source of fibre and are enriched with vitamins and minerals. The products are among the first to be certified by the Canadian Celiac Association’s Gluten-Free Certification Program.
