Our concierge makes finding Gluten Free Bakeries EZ!

As allergies to wheat and gluten have become more and more common, there is now a market for bakeries to produce gluten free products, such as gluten free bread. It is also possible to find bakeries that strictly offer gluten free produce. However, while the market is rapidly growing, these bakeries can still be hard to find. That’s where EZBZ can help. Using our extensive database of businesses and services across the US, we can help you find gluten free bakeries that are local to you.

Gluten refers to the protein found in grains such as wheat, barley and rye. It acts as a glue for food, holding it together and giving it shape. Because it is found in so many grains, gluten is typically present in food products such as bread, cereal, and pasta, and in liquids such as beer, salad dressings and malt vinegar. The prevalence of gluten in so many common food and drink options means that, for those allergic to gluten, it can be quite hard to avoid. The medical term for a gluten allergy is celiac disease.

When people with celiac disease consume gluten, the body reacts adversely, and the immune system begins to target the small intestine. This can affect the body’s ability to absorb nutrients, and can lead to long-term health complications. It is estimated that 1 in 100 people have celiac disease worldwide, and that people with a first-degree relative who have it, also have a 1 in 10 risk of developing the disease.

With these statistics, it is easy to understand the importance of readily available, gluten free options. A gluten free bakery can provide sufferers with basics such as bread and pastries, or even custom-made cakes and cookies, a luxury that celiacs would’ve likely had to avoid in the past.

EZBZ want to help those who suffer from celiac disease in any way we can. We can help you find local, gluten free bakeries via our free, online concierge service. Submit an inquiry today, and you could have a warm loaf of gluten free bread within the hour.
