  • Riceworks Gourmet Rice Snacks Review: Salsa Fresca, Sea Salt & Black Sesame, and Sweet Chili

      Riceworks chips are lighter than normal tortilla chips, probably because they are made using brown rice and rice flour, in combination with corn flour.

    Celiac.com 05/17/2019 - If you're lucky a product's name will tell you exactly how it will taste. Most of the time this isn't the case, and its name may not tell you much about its flavor. I got lucky when I tried Riceworks' Salsa Fresca, Sea Salt & Black Sesame, and Sweet Chili chips, and found that each flavor of these wonderful gluten-free snacks perfectly fit their names.

    Riceworks chips are lighter than normal tortilla chips, probably because they are made using brown rice and rice flour, in combination with corn flour. They are similar to corn chips, but definitely lighter, crunchier, and easier on your teeth than a typical corn tortilla chip. Each flavor also contains sesame seeds.

    The Riceworks Salsa Fresca tastes as good as it sounds—like you are eating a light, crispy tortilla chip covered in the best salsa ever—except you don't need the salsa. These chips really pack a ton of flavor in each bite, and this makes it hard to stop eating them! The Salsa Fresca flavor is perfectly balanced and the salsa flavor comes from the generous amount of herb and spice flavoring that cover each chip. They have a zesty and slightly spicy taste.

    The Riceworks Sweet Chili chips also taste like they sound—sweet up front, with a nice chili pepper finish. I love the combination of sweetness and chili. Even though the seasonings are generously applied, the chips were not too spicy, so it was easy to eat far too many of these as well...which I did! The Sweet Chili chips were my favorite flavor of the three.

    The Riceworks Sea Salt & Black Sesame chips were light and crunchy with a nice sesame aftertaste. I think these chips would be the best out of the three flavors to use for dipping, and they work well with every dip I tried, including hummus, ranch-style dip, and good old salsa.

    Overall Riceworks Gourmet Rice Snacks have done an outstanding job with these snacks, and they also make three additional flavors that sound great, including: Sundried Tomato, Sea Salt, and Black Japonica Rice. I can't wait to try them!

    Celiac.com 11/17/2015 - For most people, when they think of gluten, the first thing that comes to mind is bread. And for most people with celiac or a gluten sensitivity, that is what we miss most.
    While people with celiac or gluten sensitivity may never be able to experience the wide selection or soft texture that "glutenous" bread offers, there are still some tasty gluten-free bread options available at most grocery stores. In order to find the best gluten-free bread options, I went to my local Giant Eagle and tried all of the gluten-free bread available and explored four main aspects: taste, texture, price, and variety.
    The three brands of gluten...

    Celiac.com 10/12/2018 - Ever since I read the study about how caricain enzymes can break down specific gliadin peptides in celiacs on a gluten challenge, I've been hoping for a chance to try out Glutagen's GluteGuard enzymes. The tablets contain Caricain, which is an enzyme that is found in the skin of an unripe papaya fruit. According to the company, GluteGuard can help people manage their gluten-free diet better by supporting "gluten digestion" whenever they may encounter cross-contamination.
    Celiac.com's standard disclaimer about enzymes: If you have celiac disease AVOID ALL GLUTEN, and do not misuse these in a way that would cause you to...

    Celiac.com 11/16/2018 - Who doesn't love a perfectly made French meringue? And perfect is the only way to describe Alice's Sweet Tooth French Meringue Kisses! 
    Alice's Sweet Tooth creates an amazing assortment of naturally gluten-free kiss-sized meringues, including blueberry, raspberry, mango, chocolate chip, vanilla bean and cocoa. Each variety exactly captures its essence, the blueberry flavor explodes with the taste of fresh blueberries, the mango flavor tastes like fresh mangoes...and the raspberry flavor tastes like real raspberries, right down to the slight tartness that all raspberries have.
    These meringues will melt in your mouth......

    Celiac.com 11/16/2018 - I recently discovered an amazing one-to-one gluten-free all purpose flour blend made by Flour Farm. There are other companies making such flour blends, however what has been absent from this space is a healthy version. Most other blends are full of starches and other ingredients that just aren't very healthy.
    Flour Farm, however, is made in a 100% gluten-free facility, and it contains only the following organic ingredients: Sweet white rice flour, brown rice flour, tapioca flour, almond flour, and coconut flour.
    We tested out their mix by making an almond-coconut chocolate chip cookie recipe that we found on the internet...
