OUR GLUTEN FREE KITCHEN
There is a huge difference between choosing to live a gluten free lifestyle and having to live a gluten free lifestyle. Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disease caused by eating the gluten found in wheat, barley, oats, and rye. The gluten causes cumulative damage to the gut, which makes the patient very ill and if left untreated can even be fatal. The treatment sounds simple, just don’t eat wheat, barley, oats, or rye. The practicality of that decision is more difficult.
First, you have to read labels religiously because it is common for companies to change their products. Even items labeled gluten free may be off limits if they are made in a facility that also makes products that contain gluten or other allergens because of cross contamination.
When eating out, you must be careful to let your server know your dietary needs and ask if they have a gluten free menu. It is also necessary to ask how the food is prepared. Many restaurants offer gluten free food items, but prepare them on equipment where they cook gluten containing foods; or cook an item in oil where gluten containing foods were also cooked; or store gluten free items with their gluten containing counterparts. All causes cross contamination.
Grandmas Gluten Free Goodies are made specially for you in our home kitchen located in Hendersonville, TN. While my grandson, David, is the only one in the family who has Celiac Disease, our family adheres to a gluten free lifestyle and maintain a gluten free kitchen.

We were having Thanksgiving in our new home with all our family, so we got an apple pie for dessert. The whole family claimed it was the absolutely best apple pie they had ever eaten!
Thank you for the Special cake you made for our school's baked goods auction. I have to tell you, that cake was the most beautiful cake I have ever seen, and it brought a handsome price.
Our special needs daughter is the only one in our family who has to eat gluten free. Her brothers do not like gluten free foods, but they didn't know the cupcakes I got were from Grandmas Gluten Free Goodies so my oldest son grabbed one and raved about how great it was. I told him it was gluten free, and he grabbed a second one.
