The Importance of Gluten-Free Baking

If you’re gluten intolerant and have tried to bake fresh bread before, you know how difficult it can be. When you remove gluten from the baking process, you remove the binder that holds everything together. You have to find the right substitutes, and it usually takes a few tries before you get it right. It can be challenging! That’s what we’re here for. If you can’t seem to figure out the recipes or don’t even have time to bake, our gluten-free products are made just for you.

What is Gluten?

Gluten is a protein that is found in wheat, barley, rye, and a few other grains. It’s a combination of prolamin and glutelin proteins that naturally occur in a variety of grains. Gluten helps hold all of the ingredients in a recipe together while also creating the elastic property of the dough, allowing it to stretch while remaining in one piece. Unfortunately, gluten can cause negative side effects in some people. Therefore, removing gluten from their diet is something that they are pretty much required to do.

Gluten-free Baking Challenges and Solutions

One of the most challenging things to bake without gluten is bread because gluten helps provide the structure of the bread. There are other combinations of gluten-free ingredients that work, but this requires experimentation and a lot of practice. The most common replacement for gluten free baking is eggs. They work as a great binder! A lot of gluten free recipes also use starches and gums to help bind the ingredients together. However if baking is not for you, we can take that frustrating process out of the equation and deliver ready made products right to you.
