GreenStar's Bakery Expands Wheat-Free Offerings

By Kristie Snyder,

wheat-free-dessertsYou know a diet is popular when a Google search returns over 12 million results, as it does for "gluten free diet." Compare that with "vegan diet," which turns up a paltry 2.6 million. It's clear that people are increasingly avoiding wheat products and gluten, the stretchy protein found in wheat and many of its relatives. Many who avoid gluten have been diagnosed with celiac disease, in which gluten consumption can cause intestinal inflammation and damage the lining of the intestines. Others experience wheat allergies or intolerances, which can lead to a host of symptoms.

Ten years ago, finding gluten- or wheat-free baked goods could be a real challenge, and finding ones that tasted good proved even more difficult. But a trip to GreenStar's bakery case today yields over two dozen delicious wheat- or gluten-free options.
