Whole Foods Gluten-Free Bakery
0

9 posts in this topic

I discovered a new treat in the Whole Foods Gluten Free Bakery line, in the freezer section. They have developed an Apple FrangiPani Tart. The correct way to make this is using almond paste but that is extremely expensive to use in baking so they use almond flour instead and I have to say....it's very, very good!

It's not a single serving but a regular size tart and I think it was around $12.99. I really like almond paste but this is delicious and would make a good

dessert for guests. So go out and buy this now.....it's pretty darn good. :)

The gluten-free bakery items are located in the freezer section...they do not have an in store gluten-free bakery. They are shipped up from their dedicated facility in North Carolina. I only buy a few of their items as the other stuff they carry I can generally make at home easily enough. Their pie crusts are fantastic and the tart is quite good for a frozen item. Just keep it in the fridge and take it out to warm up when you want to eat them.

I can vouch for the Pecan Pie, Apple Pie, Cupcakes and the soooo good Almond Scones.

Haven't tried the other items.

I went into Whole Foods today!!!! (yay) for the first time this summer (well, fall now!) and was so thrilled to find their frozen pie crusts (couldn't find those last year) so I am busily planning what kinds of pies I am going to make. :) Did not look at all the other goodies, because I already have a sin.... I found some gluten free root beer, and rediscovered the absolute yumminess of root beer floats. Every time I have one I imagine I am at a diner and being served by winsome lasses on roller skates (never personally experienced, only seen in movies :P )

Their frozen, ready made pie crusts are really, really good. I work full time and have a commute so haven't explored home made gluten-free pie crust making yet but I did make a killer wheat crust back in the day so do know what to do. I make my pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving from the Whole Foods crust and everyone raves about it. It holds together beautifully too. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Shadowicewolf.....that is a pretty complete listing of their gluten-free stuff. I have not tried many of their products because I do some home baking and prefer to make certain items myself but the Morning Glory muffins are yummy. You have to toast them from a flavor perspective but they are made from quinoa and taste like a carrot muffin. There are carrots and pineapple in them. They are my favorite.

The scones are good too and I like to use the Prairie bread for making Thanksgiving stuffing as it's a firm bread that holds up well. You do have to toast it as it is not a soft sandwich bread but it makes delicious toast. I think, overall, they do a great job with their gluten-free bakery. You may be correct....maybe some Whole Foods somewhere has a gluten-free bakery in store, like a regular bakery, but not in my area.

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
