Fantastic gluten-free Cake From Ikea

The "Almondy" Original Swedish Almond TOrte with DAIM from IKEA is unbelievably good--and it's gluten-free!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can eat it by the slice in their restaurant, but it's quite inexpensive to buy the whole thing frozen and bring it home.

I wonder how many more IKEA products are gluten-free? I had actually bought this before I knew I had a problem with gluten, just because it tastes so good.

You mean like desks and coffee tables and stuff like that? :lol:

You don't know how right you are. A "proper" torte, according to a Martha Stewart Living rerun I was watching recently, is made with nut flour. They aren't meant to contain any wheat flour at all. So what's really good about these tortes is that they aren't gluten-free because someone made them for a specific dietary market, they're gluten free because they're better that way.

I have two of those in my freezer! Thet are very good. I think you can get them at either Sunnybridge or Whole foods. I can't remember where I purchased them at but they might be cheaper than at Ikea. I also bought a choc.decent dessert at Trader Joe's in Ohio when I was there. I'm not a choc. person but it looked so good...I will get the name of it of the box if anyone wants it.....

Visited Ikea, today. YUM!! Three varieties of the torte -- chocolate, caramel(more like toffee), and almond. All free of gluten. Guy behind the counter showed me the box so I could read the ingredients and saw website almondy.com I haven't checked it out yet. Also box indicated they were connected w/ Kraft foods.

Very yummy, I thought a small amount went a long way. I might break mine into mini - bite size pieces and freeze them.

Lucky me, Mom decided to serve it for dessert on Easter -- it was that yummy! (I'm the only gluten-free one in the bunch!)

I know this is an old post and I hate to be the bearer of bad news...but...I recently was at IKEA and looked at their nutrition binder for something there that I could eat (it is available upon request) and the almond tortes contain WHEAT STARCH! I was very upset because they prominently display that they are GLUTEN FREE! I pointed it out to the cashier who suggested I ask for the binder, but I'm sure it won't go much further than that. My only supposition is that since its a European company, their standards must be different for classifying 'gluten free' and I think I read somewhere that in Europe, wheat starch is considered gluten free.

Pure wheat starch is inherently gluten-free, but there is a risk of cross-contamination during its extraction. I believe that in Europe, some wheat starch is produced with the intent of using it in gluten-free products, and this wheat starch is tested for gluten content. Many cakes and cookies labeled as gluten-free in Europe include wheat starch as an ingredient. There must be many people on the gluten-free diet in Europe who consume these (and when I visit Europe, I am among them), but you'll need to decide for yourself whether you feel safe.

Watch out for the Blueberry or Strawberry Cheesecakes in the Freezer Cabinets (can't remember the name, Swedish of course) it's also Gluten Free. They Normally have a list at the food checkout which lists Gluten Free items maybe also other allergies.

I'm slightly confused. I went to the website of the company that at least used to make them (almondy) and I don't even see wheat starch listed as an ingredient. Did the manufacturer they use change? Because these are the ingredients I see on the website:

Sugar, egg white, water, vegetable fat, glucose syrup, cream, almonds, apricot kernels, egg yolk, condensed milk, cocoa butter, skimmed milk powder, buttermilk powder, cocoa mass, butter, whey powder, stabilizer (sorbitol, carboxy methyl cellulose, pectin, gellan gum), cocoa powder, emulsifier (soy lecithin, lactic acid esters of mono- and diglycerides, mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids), salt, freeze-dried coffee, flavouring.

Contains milk, egg, soy lecithin, almonds.

May contain traces of peanuts.

Contains Marabou milk chocolate (12%)

and meringues (6%).

    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
