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.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
