Being in-the-know of current trends is a given for most YPs. When it comes to food, one of the biggest recent trends is opting for gluten-free products. More and more establishments are becoming aware about this sensitivity. The number of individuals with an aversion to gluten, whether by necessity or preference, is steadily increasing. But choosing places to eat out when you have celiac disease or gluten intolerance can be difficult, either by lack of knowledge or the lack of options.
Calgary-founded and based Care Bakery has come to the rescue for those who shy away from gluten foods. Founded by Kerry Bennet, its foundation is based in a belief that you should have easy access to delicious breads and baked goods even with wheat and gluten sensitivities, no matter if you are staying in, dining out, our simply grabbing take-out on the way home.
Looking to stock your freezer? You can purchase their products at several different retailers throughout Calgary. Their delicious baked goods are also popping up in many of the city’s best restaurants – 33 to be exact – with no signs of slowing down. No longer do you have to settle for stale rice crackers; instead, many of your favourite dishes can be altered to accommodate a gluten-free diet.
Perhaps one of Care Bakery’s most notable moves is that they are committed to ensuring you can have peace of mind when enjoying their baked goods. All Care Bakery products come with a ‘stamp of approval’ – everything is baked on special sheets to embed the Care-leaf (their logo) on the underside of each of their products. Care Bakery also takes the time to help educate the staff at the restaurants where Care Bakery goods are sold about gluten free diets.
Care Bakery continues to expand, with baked good and more now available at several restaurants and retailers in Canmore, Banff, Edmonton, Olds, and White Rock (BC).
