Happy for Stevie G's growth and also want to mention Those Nut-Free Ladies, a local bakery devoted to helping those with dietary restrictions. Stevie G's isn't safe for those with allergies to nuts, but Those Nut-Free Ladies can customize their baked goods for those with all kinds of dietary restrictions, from gluten to vegan to nut, egg, or dairy free. I'm grateful we have all of these options in the Cville area, and hope that other bakers -- and chefs -- will take note! Best of luck to Stevie G's and Those Nut-Free Ladies.

Its ironic that Gluten free baking has been the rage overseas for years and its just now making its way to the states as a "selling point"

So what if it was overseas before here, they get the flu overseas first. Please be grateful that these bakers have taken the task on.

Europe has banned many harmful food colors, hormones and preservatives in much of their food. Look at the labels on everything you buy, including medications for your child. There is food coloring, preservative, or other harmful stuff in almost all of it. Studies have shown that taking the food coloring and preservatives out of the diet of ADHD often shows a significant improvement in behavior. Read about all the harmful effects of food coloring and preservatives. Cancer, etc.

Great for these folks taking on this type of food preparation. I am personally thinking of trying the gluten free foods to lose some weight.

Exactly, the BigAg is one of the most powerful lobby there is. They spend millions and billions on misinformation and hiding information.

Just guessing here but would that include the corn growing lobby forcing us to go to 15% ethenol? Ethenol costing more to produce than what its worth.

Actually the Corn Ethanol lobby is at odds with the Meat Lobby, which all falls under the umbrella of BigAg. The clear winner, either way, is Monsanto. The clear loser, either way, is the U.S. consumer, taxpayer, and developing nations that rely on U.S. surpluses to drive world food costs down. A more complex issue is the ethics of speculation, which is starving millions globally.

For anyone one that knows:

Does "gluten free" mean "no gluten added" or does it actually mean "gluten free," because I like wheat bread with no processed binders added.

Yeah, ADM is bad:

http://www.cato.org/pubs/pas/pa-241.html

"At least 43 percent of ADM's annual profits are from products heavily subsidized or protected by the American government. Moreover, every $1 of profits earned by ADM's corn sweetener operation costs consumers $10, and every $1 of profits earned by its ethanol operation costs taxpayers $30"

I knew it, I knew it. And pushed on us by our representives in gubment. I just spent a small furtune getting my riding mower fixed as a result of using ethenol gas. The car manufacturers have stated they will not honor parts of new car warruntees for cars using ethenol. So whats a person to do. Its no big deal getting non eth for the mower but having to get it all the time for a car will be a pain. There are only 2 or 3 places around here that sell non ethenol. It gonna be a big deal when VA goes to 15%.

Gluten free actually means gluten free....using substitute flours that don't naturally contain gluten.

Thanks, I've never had rice or nut flour bread. Is bean flour bread gluten free, too? Have you had them, and if so, are they any good? We mill our wheat; of course it's a little dense because we don't add gluten, but I'm okay with that.
