Bulk Barn - Ontario

But then she emailed me and said that her bread maker's user guide suggested that she would need some xanthan gum, so she went back to the Bulk Barn and saw the price of it and said "nope, Becky can make her own bread!" So, she gave me the bag of bulk gluten free all purpose flour. Which I am deathly afraid of! I have avoided the Bulk Barn entirely since my diagnosis!
Has anyone used the gluten-free bulk products from the Bulk Barn and been ok? Or should I just give it to someone who isn't afraid of it? (plus, I'm also a low-carber, so not only does the cross contamination issue scare me, but the carb count of these flours is frightening!)

I was in one recently, and all of the gluten-free flours were together in a section which contained nothing else, and which was at the front of the store separated from everything else. But, I have been in other locations where that was not true. The layout and awareness level varies.
We were actually looking for chickpea flour, but did not buy any because it was in the general flour section close to the barley.

It's much cheaper that anywhere else I can find.
Maybe you can find out which store?

I feel a little bit better, but I still think I will give it to my Celiac friend who isn't afraid of carbs
