About Our Ingredients
What gluten free flours do you use?
We use Bob's Red Mill rice flour, garbanzo/fava bean mix or oat flours.
Are you Vegan?
Our products are 100% vegan!
How do you color your frosting?
We use all natural food colorings. We achieve pink with beets, green with chlorophyll, yellow with turmeric and blue/purple with red cabbage. These colors contain no synthetic dyes.
What kinds of dairy substitutions do bake with?
We use rice and coconut milk in lieu of soy or cow's milk.
What kind of sweeteners do you use?
We use agave nectar (a sweetener derived from cactus) and evaporated cane juice (often referred to as organic or unrefined sugar). Although Agave Nectar syrup is known to be a healthful, low glycemic alternative for some with diabetes, it is not safe for everyone. Each sugar conscious customer should consult her physician to determine whether she should enjoy our baked goods.
What kind of fats do you use?
We use two types of oil: non-GMO canola and cold pressed coconut oil. If you don't already know, we're huge coconut oil fans. It's high in immunity-enhancing lauric acid, boosts metabolism and combats heart disease and diabetes. What's not to love?
Is there soy in your products
We understand that many people are either allergic to or don't enjoy soy products, which is why we don't bake with any soy. That being said, Bob's Red Mill does package soy on the same equipment as the gluten free flours. They do, however, power wash the machinery and discard the initial 30 pounds of flour between runs to minimize the potential for cross-contamination.
Are you nut free?
We cannot claim to be nut free because we bake with Coconut Oil and our gluten-
free flours from Bob's Red Mill are packaged on the same equipment as hazelnut and almond flour. They do, however, power wash the machinery and discard the initial 30 pounds of flour between runs to minimize the potential for cross-contamination.
Is there corn in your products?
There is corn in all of our products as our vanilla is corn-filtered and there are corn derivatives in our frosting. Unfortunately, we're unable to do substitutions on these products.
Which products do not contain rice?
This is a tricky one as rice is such a great substitute for wheat. The only items we carry that do not contain rice are the cookies (without frosting).
