Gluten is a protein found in these grains – wheat, barley, rye, spelt and some others. If you study packaged food labels, it seems like wheat or gluten is added to everything - wheat starch in salad dressings, wheat in soy sauce! Some food-thickeners, modified starches and most hydrolyzed anything are all mystery ingredients that could spell trouble for people who avoid gluten.
Zen Cat Bakery uses alternative flours that are gluten-free,and made out of grains, legumes and even edible grasses that bring protein and nutrition to gluten-free products – there’s even some chewiness and texture that mimic the foods you’ve left behind. Our main flour blend has sorghum, millet and tapioca flours. We also employ brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa, coconut and almond flours.
Zen Cat Bakery is a dedicated Gluten-Free kitchen. Offering this to you will ensure that you are eating quality gluten-free foods. Contact us if you have a question about ingredients.
There is an estimated 1% of the population of the United States that has been diagnosed with Celiac Disease (that’s approximately 1 out of every 133 people) and an unknown number of people that go undiagnosed. A popular health blog quotes a doctor on this: for every 1 person diagnosed with Celiac, there are 30 people without a diagnosis. These figures do not take into account people who have a gluten allergy or wheat sensitivity. For these people, there are a range of symptoms and diseases that can occur if left undiagnosed or untreated. The good news is that Celiac Disease and gluten intolerances are managed by simply avoiding gluten! We are not diagnosing you, and we are not replacing your doctor’s advice – ask your doctor about your specific health concerns.
