Our bakery is a gluten-free zone and all of the products we produce are 100% gluten-free. Our products and manufacturing facilities have been tested and certified by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization, an industry leader in in the verification of quality, integrity, and purity of gluten-free products.
At Glutenull we believe in providing our customers with delicious products free from artificial, manipulated and processed ingredients. All of our products are certified free from genetically modified organisms by the Non-GMO Project, North America’s only third party verification for products produced according to rigorous best practices for GMO avoidance.
GMOs (or “genetically modified organisms”) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacteria and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods. A growing body of evidence connects GMOs with health problems, environmental damage and violation of farmers’ and consumers’ rights. In fact, most developed nations do not consider GMOs to be safe and over 60 countries have significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs.
Yes, we are proud to have many certified organic products. Our organic products include: Chia Goji Granola, Chia Goji Bar, Hemp Granola, Hemp Energy Bar, Coco D’Lish, Buckwheat Granola Bar, and Georgian Super Greens.
Do you use tree nuts or peanuts in your bakery?
Yes, we bake with tree nuts in our bakery, but not peanuts. We take the utmost caution to prevent any cross contamination of tree nuts with our nut-free products.
No, we take great care to ensure only sulphite free and/or organic ingredients are used in all of our products.
We are very happy to say that we are a completely yeast free facility. Natural health care practitioners love to recommend our products to their patients on yeast-free or candida diets.
Our products are very low in sugar. Our gluten free breads are sugar free, and the rest of our products are naturally sweetened with low glycemic organic agave syrup, cane juice or the ingredients contained within i.e. dates, coconut, et cetera. Our bestselling Quinoa Granola contains less sugar than other leading healthy granolas. See our products page for the exact sugar content per serving for each of our products.
Keep them in a shaded, cool area or freeze them. Since our products contain no preservatives, we suggest you slice our breads and store them in the freezer. They freeze very well for up to 3 months. However, they can sit on your counter top covered with a clean dish towel for up to a week.
We’ve created gluten free breads that are moist and delicious and because we aren’t using yeasts, oil or gluten we needed to be creative in how to achieve this goal. After lots of trials, we’ve come up with the perfect recipe to achieve this. Some people are concerned that they are under baked or raw, but this is not the case. In fact, we bake our breads for longer than traditional loaves and assure you that they are fully cooked to perfection. We figure a little bread residue is worth having super soft and moist breads that don’t require toasting.
We don’t recommend you slice our breads on a bread slicer. The reason is gluten free breads need xanthan gum as the binder because of its lack of gluten.This is a great solution because its creates a moist bread that holds nicely, but it will tend to cause the loaf to fall apart and leave a residue on the machine’s blades if sliced in this manner.
The green coloration is due to the green pumpkin seeds added to the Amaranth loaf during the baking process, and is a result of the process of leaving the dough to absorb water for 24 hours.
When we slice the bread some dough sticks to your knife and gives the impressions that the bread is uncooked. Our bread undergoes a baking process that takes about 90 minutes, which is a long bake time for cooking bread.
Are the buckwheat kernels in the Hemp Energy Granola cooked?
No, first we soak organic buckwheat kernels in water for 24 hours and then dry them on special equipment below 120 F.
