Still searching for great tasting gluten-free food options? They can be difficult to find to say the least – you’d be surprised at how many people this affects. With one in 133 Americans living with celiac disease and gluten-free sales estimated to exceed more than $5 billion by 2015, it’s important that we provide our customers with as many options as possible.
We’re now offering Down in the Valley Bakehouse products for our customers seeking delicious, gluten-free baked good options. (Of course you still want those tasty treats!) We’re excited to partner with this delicious, local bakery that many of our customers are already familiar with.
Chocolate chip cookies, double chocolate brownies, marble chiffon cake slices, pound cake mini loaves and blueberry muffins are just some of the products you’ll find.
All Down in the Valley Bakehouse products are made locally in a dedicated gluten-free commercial kitchen. All products are 100% gluten-free, trans fat-free and peanut-free. These baked goods are also all natural, non-GMO and are organic when possible.
The Bakehouse adds nutritional ingredients to its products using flax seed and other proteins. While most of the items are dairy-free, the dairy products used in some of the baked goods contain no hormones or antibiotics. Palm shortening, which is trans-fat free, is used as a more earth-friendly baking staple.
We hope you enjoy these new and delightfully tasty treats! We’re working toward meeting your needs – visit our gluten-free shopping guide for additional shopping tips.
