Celiac.com 09/04/2013 - Just in, this little gem from thedailymeal.com: News that one in three Americans are avoiding or reducing gluten in their diets seems to have gotten through to major American dough manufacturer Pillsbury, which says it will be releasing a line of refrigerated gluten-free items, including pie and pastry dough, chocolate chip cookie dough, and thin crust pizza.
Pillsbury will make these allergen-free items available at mass scale in local and chain grocers this month. Among other groups, these products are likely aimed at regaining many of the folks who love Pillsbury's croissants and biscuits, but who are now gluten-free.
Additionally, the company is also partnering with chef Cat Cora, and Gluten-free advocate Danna Korn to develop gluten-free recipes that highlight Pillsbury's products.
When asked by reporters for The Daily Meal if she had any plans to release a gluten-free cookbook, Cora said, “Maybe I will! She says her media team is always on the lookout for vegan and gluten-free recipe opportunities and that she hasn't seen many gluten-free cookbooks out there.
