Amanda and I contributed this article to the Celiac Circular. Become a member of the Canadian Celiac Association Edmonton Chapter to receive all the great Celiac and gluten free related articles in their newsletter.
There is never a shortage of new
products to try out thankfully, but finding room in your tummy is another
question. Luckily I am always posting
great finds to the Gluten Free
Edmonton Facebook Page and our Gluten
Free Edmonton blog so it sometimes makes it easy to go back and find what
to write for the product report.
This month we found some great
sweets and savoury treats, some are new and some have been around awhile.
Gluten Free Post Cocoa & Fruity Pebbles - Okay let's be honest,
this is not exactly new, but it is still fairly new to Canada. The kids love it, and so do many adults as
well and they make awesome squares (think rice krispie square but a bit
different) Yum. Not to mention, we found
it at Dollarama for two dollars! In the
past we have found it selling for $4 per box.
Club House Brown Gravy - Approved by the Canadian Celiac
Association Gluten Free Certification Program, we tried this gravy with fries and
it was so delicious, you wouldn't even know it as gluten free. Be sure to look at the packaging because not

You can find these gravies at most supermarkets.
All But Gluten Chocolate Sandwich - Who didn't like these growing up? We won't

also taste really good. Can you tell we
had a sweet tooth this month? You can find All But Gluten products at
Superstore and Wal-Mart
RioVida's Perogies, Cheese Balls & Donuts - Najah, owner of
RioVida is often too kind. If you've
been to the RioVida Bakery in the west end, you know what I'm really talking
about. She is always happy to offer up
some samples to try before buying her home made delicious creations. Try the perogies, donuts and Brazillian
cheese balls just to start. Heck try
Catelli's Gluten Free Macaroni - Catelli's gluten free line of
pasta is not new, but they recently introduced a new gluten free macaroni. We have enjoyed their pasta. It is a corn/rice mix and typically holds
pretty well leaving you with a great non-mushy pasta to enjoy.
Explore Asia- Gluten free Organic Black bean spaghetti- This product is found at Costco stores. We
have not yet tried it but the packaging claimed to be super high in protein,
gluten free, soy free and vegan
Judy G's Gluten Free frozen pizzas (various flavors) -These product
can be found at many Sobeys & Coop
stores throughout Alberta. Awhile back
we had the opportunity to meet Judy herself. Her pizza's are excellent and very
easy to make. She had told us that she started out making them in her own
kitchen in Calgary, so they are essentially a locally made product (well local
