Living Without's Favorites: Natural Choice
No time to bake? Mixes from Gluten-Free Naturals Foods, LLC, bake up impressive alternatives to made-from-scratch recipes. Founded in 2004 by the Graven family in response to a relative’s celiac diagnosis, GFN tests its bakery items on celiacs and non-celiacs alike to assure universal appeal. The products taste great with no gritty, grainy mouth-feel. The company offers mixes for brownies, pancakes, cookies, corn bread, pizza crusts, cakes—and its newest item, Sandwich Bread Flour, contains no gluten, casein or soy. With a soft, springy texture and a mild flavor that doesn’t require toasting, this bread gets rave reviews. It stays moist and fresh-tasting for four days. Each package makes two one-pound loaves.
