I love to do research! And in the gluten free industry that means sampling gluten free food.
Today I am particularly happy to be sampling Joan’s GF Great Bakes products recently introduced to the market; specifically the multi-grain English muffins. She is updating her delicious line, which includes bialy’s, Italian bread, bagels, English muffins, Scicilian pizza, corn toaster muffins, chocolate chip cookies and calzone, by adding double chocolate muffins, crumb cake, and multi-grain English muffins.
And Joan has really has done it again. I am a proponent of healthy gluten free living and in large part those of us that are gluten intolerant (Celiac Disease, gluten sensitivity) have taken whole wheat out of our diets and are left with low-fiber, low-nutrient, dense food. Joan’s multi-grain English muffins are made with 3 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber (amaranth, flax seed meal, organic buckwheat, and fortified with iron, vitamins A, B2, B6, B12, and D3, Calcium, Folic Acid) and many more.
At first glance, taste and smell I knew that I was in for a treat. First off, the package of 4 muffins comes in a resealable plastic bag that is compact for the freezer. I defrosted the muffin for 30 seconds; the smell was very inticing. I then toasted the muffins for a crunchy texture. I ate them plain with a bowl of soup so I could savor the flavor of the muffin.
Joan’s GF Greatbakes is a dedicated gluten free facility. They are also peanut, tree nut and soy free. They have many products that are dairy and gluten free and some that are gluten, egg and dairy free. You can order Joan’s product on-line or find them in select stores nationally.
