Some people think that they have to shop in one small section of the supermarket or take a special trip to the health food store to go gluten free. Wake up peeps! This is 2015. And that means that gluten free is everywhere–if you just know what to look for.
Lucky for you, we went to the Winter Fancy Food Show in downtown SF and sampled all sorts snacks coming out in the upcoming year. The surprising thing is that many of them aren’t labeled gluten-free, but they are. Restricted diet or not, be the first to taste these terrific naturally gluten-free foods. Trust us, there’s something here for everyone.
Chocolate with More to Love
No longer is it enough to tempt us with bittersweet dark chocolate, creamy milk chocolate or even salted caramel filled chocolate. Today’s treats are pushing it further. And Wild Ophelia is at the forefront. Featuring BBQ potato chips inside one dark chocolate bar and beef jerky in a milk chocolate version, we’re talking twice as much yum with every bite. Using Non-GMO ingredients whenever possible, as well as those sourced from small farms and food artisans, we’re smitten!
Seeds of Change
Between sunflower seed based Somersaults Snacks and chia-studded My Super Cookies, there’s no doubt that snacks have been getting seedier these days. But who knew there’d be a new player in the raw seed snack aisle so soon? Leave it to Go Raw to introduce a new naturally addictive sprouted snack that’s ready to rival the best of ‘em. Their Sprouted Watermelon Seeds are not only 100% Organic and high in protein, but their nutty taste is downright unforgettable.
Toddler Veggies with Adult Appeal
While companies like Natural Sins are perfecting the art of baking thin crispy fruit and veggie chips for the rest of us, Kiddylicious is focusing on the pint-sized crowd. Produced in single serve packages that are just right for a trip to the playground, their fruit and veggie chips offer a great gateway to good eating. (Just as long as mom doesn’t polish them off during naptime).
Not Popped Corn
There are those that hit the theaters just for the mega sized popcorn bucket, and then others who want a little something special for their snack. Nourish Snack’s Mr. Popular half popped corn kernels are for them. Salted just right and sans processed butter flavor, a serving of these pups boasts 5 grams of fiber. Another corny contender, roasted King Corn offers 4 grams of protein and comes in 3 different flavors. Without a doubt: Two thumbs up!
Ok. so we can’t guarantee that everything flavored with Sriracha is gluten-free, but Sriracha sauce itself is. That means that this trendy spice boosted is launching some serious GF flavor into some of our favorite foods. Looking to add a little extra good lovin’ to your next burger? Try Traina Food’s newest all natural ketchup flavor. You’re sure to get a kick out of it.
