Foods By George

15 posts in this topic

For anyone who hasn't already heard me go crazy over Foods By George.....they're the best! :D

The brownies taste better than the "real" thing. The blueberry and corn muffins taste just as good as or better than the "real" thing. But I just found out that they are not famous for either the brownies or muffins -- but rather for their english muffins! The eng. muffins are soooooooo good....100 times better than the old kind. This company has such a high standard for food and I just wanted to praise them for that--I heard that they had a gluten-free ravioli that was so popular that they couldn't keep up with the demand--they would've had to get a bigger factory--so unfortunately they stopped making it......kinda stupid in my opinion, but whatever.

I just wanted to HIGHLY recommend that brand to anyone who sees it somewhere....they have such high-quality products. Oh, I forgot to mention: the corn/blueberry muffins are gluten-free, but the brownies are gluten-free, soy free, dairy free, lactose free, casein free. Finally, the english muffins are gluten-free, dairy free, lactose free, casein free, and corn free.....they're so "free" that they're fine for just about anyone to eat :D . I just wanted to make this post in hopes that someone will try their products and realize that this is such a great brand. Their products are expensive, but well-worth it.

Here's their website: not much to it, but they have a pic. of their eng. muffins on the left.......and a # to call--maybe if you can't get them at a health food store near you, they'll ship you their products: http://www.foodsbygeorge.com

I've found their products at health food stores, and normal grocier stores, that have a health food section. They're stuff is normal in a freezer or fridge though (least in my experience).

celiac3270 -> I totally agree about their brownies.. but, the english muffin.. I dunno, I just found it real icky! To me didn't have much taste, and it really had that rice flour texture to it. Great you enjoy it though. And think Molly has it easy sorta? Just because she's never had wheat flour, I'm guessing? I still miss it! LOL

Though, I just microwaved mine, because we don't have a gluten-free toaster here, maybe that makes it better?

And hearing you rave about the blueberry/corn muffins makes me wish they were Gluten-free Casein-free! LOL

The blueberry muffins weren't quite as "realistic" as the corn.

Also, if you didn't toast the english muffin, that's why--no eng. muffin is good before toasting :D ......it's definitely thicker than most eng. muffins, but once toasted, it tastes the same to me and it's actually nicer to have a thick eng. muffin cause it doesn't get burnt as easily. My brother actually prefers mine to his and often asks for a piece :)

Yeah....they're not a huge, well-known company like Ener-G or Kinnickinnick (sp.)........

I like that they don't introduce new products cause they're mediocre and might sell---they seem to wait until they have something really great and as good as it can get and THEN put it on the shelves.

Actually I didn't mind wheat ones if they weren't toasted, true they were better toasted. And thanks! Too bad I already threw the rest out, lol.. oops. Though without a toaster.. hmm.. maybe I could have broiled them in the oven? LOL

Molly, here's their website: http://www.foodsbygeorge.com/

They actually have a form you can download to bring to a health food store manager, to try and get them to use their products, lol. Also shows all their products if you were curious. =)

Hey, I bought a toaster at either Target or ShopKo for like $5 not too long ago. It's a great investment, since I've found all gluten-free breads I've yet tried are great toasted!

PS: thrift stores rip you off selling you an old crappy caked non-polarised toaster that will bite the dust in 3 days for $15 :D

Any gluten-free breads you would recommend? Ones I have tried, have been awful! LOL

I use Ener-G, but it's not nearly as light as the old stuff was.....it's too dense, but the best I have found

Foods By George: I just tried their crumb cake........REALLY EXPENSIVE, though......$10.99 for a package the same size as their brownies....small! If you like crumb cake, though, this one is better than the real thing, in my opinion.

Oh, by the way, I had been looking for a long time, where I could get Foods By George products online....couldn't find anywhere......Gretchen (GEF) found this website, so if you can't get them at a local store (as is likely) you can try them by buying them here--the prices are about the same as in the store--just not sure if they charge shipping......here's the site, and thanks again, Gretchen :D :

;) Hi All, I found that Whole foods carries them by me and I tried the pound cake. I didn't think it was all that great. It was pretty expensive too. I called my local health food store and asked them to carry Foods by George so I could try something else, and now they carry almost the complete line. For all of you that can't find it available in your area, I would ask the manager at any of your local health food stores to try and get it for you.

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

    • Gardasil And Celiac
      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
