Important Note: If you live in Austin, I’m sure you have heard of the “gluten-free” products coming out of Jenny’s Bakehouse. She is a whole sale distributor that has products in numerous People’s RX locations, among others. I’ve received several complaints about cross contamination issues when eating her products. Since she bakes “gluten products” in her home, there is a chance that the gluten-free products are being contaminated. So please, eat at your own risk. This also goes for most restaurants in Austin that are not working with GIG or or not gluten-free certified. It is always important to educate yourself about cross contamination, gluten and where it is found, and to listen to your own body.
Updated 9/26/2011: Jenny’s bake-house products were tested by the GIG and they confirmed that they are NOT gluten-free, so do not eat them.
Stay tuned for more delicious gluten-free recipes!
