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.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
