According to Wikipedia: Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and malts. It is used as a food additive in the form of a flavoring, stabilizing or thickening agent, often as "dextrin".
luckily, we are not Gluten-Free eaters. . .yet. . .I'm not 100% sure I wouldn't feel better if I did eat gluten-free though. so when I had the opportunity to slip a few Udi's products into my family's meal plan. . .I did.
my oldest was off from school and wanted a bagel for lunch. so I defrosted a Udi's cinnamon raisin bagel and popped it in the toaster. I spread it with cream cheese and served it up.
he ate the whole thing - declaring it delicious. (i feel so very clever)
next on our list were the cinnamon rolls. . .i served these as an after-school snack with glasses of milk. the 4 year-old preferred the cinnamon icing to the actual roll, but I thought they were a great snack/treat. These tasty cinnamon rolls are also soy, dairy and nut free!
the kids are planning to make their own pizzas tonight with Udi's pre-made pizza crusts. they are the perfect size to serve 1-2 people. so far, I'm impressed with products and give them 2 thumbs up!
Udi's makes bread, muffins, rolls, and cookies too. Their products can be frozen for up to 6 months and stay fresh about 5-7 days at room temperature. You can follow Udi's on Facebook and on Twitter or check out their website.
have you tried Udi's? what are some of your favorite products?
catch you soon -
