Fantastic gluten-free Cake From Ikea

The "Almondy" Original Swedish Almond TOrte with DAIM from IKEA is unbelievably good--and it's gluten-free!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can eat it by the slice in their restaurant, but it's quite inexpensive to buy the whole thing frozen and bring it home.

I wonder how many more IKEA products are gluten-free? I had actually bought this before I knew I had a problem with gluten, just because it tastes so good.

I was there last weekend and looked those things over--they looked good! Alas, I didn't buy one though, I am dairy-free too...

You mean like desks and coffee tables and stuff like that? :lol:

You don't know how right you are. A "proper" torte, according to a Martha Stewart Living rerun I was watching recently, is made with nut flour. They aren't meant to contain any wheat flour at all. So what's really good about these tortes is that they aren't gluten-free because someone made them for a specific dietary market, they're gluten free because they're better that way.

I have two of those in my freezer! Thet are very good. I think you can get them at either Sunnybridge or Whole foods. I can't remember where I purchased them at but they might be cheaper than at Ikea. I also bought a choc.decent dessert at Trader Joe's in Ohio when I was there. I'm not a choc. person but it looked so good...I will get the name of it of the box if anyone wants it.....

Visited Ikea, today. YUM!! Three varieties of the torte -- chocolate, caramel(more like toffee), and almond. All free of gluten. Guy behind the counter showed me the box so I could read the ingredients and saw website almondy.com I haven't checked it out yet. Also box indicated they were connected w/ Kraft foods.

Very yummy, I thought a small amount went a long way. I might break mine into mini - bite size pieces and freeze them.

Lucky me, Mom decided to serve it for dessert on Easter -- it was that yummy! (I'm the only gluten-free one in the bunch!)

I know this is an old post and I hate to be the bearer of bad news...but...I recently was at IKEA and looked at their nutrition binder for something there that I could eat (it is available upon request) and the almond tortes contain WHEAT STARCH! I was very upset because they prominently display that they are GLUTEN FREE! I pointed it out to the cashier who suggested I ask for the binder, but I'm sure it won't go much further than that. My only supposition is that since its a European company, their standards must be different for classifying 'gluten free' and I think I read somewhere that in Europe, wheat starch is considered gluten free.

Pure wheat starch is inherently gluten-free, but there is a risk of cross-contamination during its extraction. I believe that in Europe, some wheat starch is produced with the intent of using it in gluten-free products, and this wheat starch is tested for gluten content. Many cakes and cookies labeled as gluten-free in Europe include wheat starch as an ingredient. There must be many people on the gluten-free diet in Europe who consume these (and when I visit Europe, I am among them), but you'll need to decide for yourself whether you feel safe.

Watch out for the Blueberry or Strawberry Cheesecakes in the Freezer Cabinets (can't remember the name, Swedish of course) it's also Gluten Free. They Normally have a list at the food checkout which lists Gluten Free items maybe also other allergies.

I'm slightly confused. I went to the website of the company that at least used to make them (almondy) and I don't even see wheat starch listed as an ingredient. Did the manufacturer they use change? Because these are the ingredients I see on the website:

Sugar, egg white, water, vegetable fat, glucose syrup, cream, almonds, apricot kernels, egg yolk, condensed milk, cocoa butter, skimmed milk powder, buttermilk powder, cocoa mass, butter, whey powder, stabilizer (sorbitol, carboxy methyl cellulose, pectin, gellan gum), cocoa powder, emulsifier (soy lecithin, lactic acid esters of mono- and diglycerides, mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids), salt, freeze-dried coffee, flavouring.

Contains milk, egg, soy lecithin, almonds.

May contain traces of peanuts.

Contains Marabou milk chocolate (12%)

and meringues (6%).
