kosher for Passover
Makes a great cracker
Andy's IGA in Edmonton's west end is not only known for Edmonton's best place to shop for kosher food for the Jewish community, but they have the best selection when it comes to kosher for Passover. Strolling around Andy's IGA, we noticed a lot of gluten free foods. Because they are part of the Sobey's family of grocers, they have the same signage with a nicely indicated gluten free section with a purple sign.

Lately, manufacturers have been becoming creative with their kosher for Passover foods. I think it's inspiration from gluten free foods. You can now find more Passover gluten free foods that are great, not only for gluten free Passover cooking but for gluten free cooking in general, and Andy's is carrying a lot of these products. Instead of using crushed up matzah (matzah meal), more creativity is happening with potato starch, ground almonds and other gluten free ingredients. You won't find rice flour used during Passover, because that is also a grain that most of the Jewish population are not allowed during this time.

|Gluten free kosher for Passover thin noodles|
Amanda also picked up some gluten free Passover noodles for soup. They were on sale for 2 for $5! She is so excited about having noodles for her soup. The noodles were made by Gefen who often make gluten free kosher foods. They also had a Gefen breakfast cereal in the style of cream of wheat (obviously without the wheat). The Gefen products that are labelled gluten free often have a certification on it by the Celiac Disease Foundation and the Certified Gluten Free certification (GF) as well.
