A Glance at Gluten Freedom
With foods like almonds packing your clients’ pantries, gluten free doesn’t have to mean flavour free. Or fun free, for that matter. Almonds are endlessly versatile and always enjoyable, so for those living with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, they’re a must-have solution for living deliciously gluten free. We even have a comprehensive collection of gluten-free almond recipes to get your clients cooking.
Out and About
Planning ahead is important for proper nutrition, especially in the case of a gluten-free lifestyle. Almonds are known for being non-greasy (aka “the neat nut”), so they are great on the go. Traveling, long days at work and unexpected schedule surprises are no match for these on-hand heroes.
A Form for Every Function
Your clients may be surprised at how many ways they can enjoy these awesomely crunchy nuts on their own or as an ingredient. From natural whole almonds (a stellar snack) and sliced, diced and slivered almonds (add crunch and substance to salads, side dishes, desserts, veggies and more) to gluten-free almond crackers (a crispy, crunchy snack or a crushed coating on fish or poultry) and almond butter (spread on snacks or thicken up a smoothie), there’s no stopping these gluten-free wonders.
Gluten-free baking gets a whole lot better when you and your clients add almond flour into the mix. It has a smooth texture and a subtle flavour that goes with sweet or savoury recipes, and it’s also one of the most nutrient-rich flours available. Click here for the full nutrition lowdown.
Almonds, like other nuts, are naturally gluten-free. However, there is the potential risk of cross-contamination with gluten-containing ingredients during processing. Flavored almonds may also have added gluten-containing ingredients. If you are on a gluten-free diet, please read all labels carefully to ensure that the product is free of gluten.
