A tip from Jacque in Alpine, Utah

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl:

I recently read in a comment that you are looking into gluten free recipes, etc.

I wanted to let you know about this 9 grain bread being sold at Alpine Food Storage. Maybe you’ve already heard about it, but I am really impressed since most of the gluten free alternatives consist of merely rice or potato flour. I was very pleased to look on the label and see words like quinoa, sorghum, amaranth, and buckwheat.

What a great feeling to know you aren’t just taking away gluten, but replacing it with nutrition-packed grains. I think Chirine at Alpine Food Storage does an amazing job finding quality products to supply in bulk and could give you more information. Right now, I think it’s just someone putting ingredients together right out of his home.

I’d love to see more people enjoy this kind of thing, but I hope they can keep the price low. It tastes like whole wheat to me and he even offers some that is not only gluten free but also corn free. For a lot of us who can’t tolerate gluten, most of the products we turn to are corn, which is pretty unhealthy as well. I am trying to minimize my intake of wheat and corn and really appreciate finding a bread recipe that can do that and help supply the grain in our diet. =) Thanks for all you’re doing on here, I love reading through everyone’s stories and ideas.

Jacque: Thanks for this. Many people are suffering with gluten intolerances, and I believe that number will grow, especially as people who are simply undiagnosed become more educated. Desi and I are going to develop a program that is not only gluten-free, but also whole foods.
