Gluten-Free News!

Hello readers!

     Many of our customers order from us because not only are Euforia's cakes tasty, our cakes are gluten-free.  Because of that, I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know some of the gluten-free news that's been happening:

  • The Girl Scouts of America are introducing a gluten-free cookie in 20 test markets.  It's a chocolate-chip shortbread cookie with no artificial colors, flavors, high fructose corn syrup, or hydrogenated oils.  We're hoping it tastes as good as it looks and goes nation-wide!
  • Perfect for this time of year: The "SPOOKtacular Gluten-Free Halloween Desserts" cookbook just came out in paperback and for Kindle!  This could be a great way to enjoy some Halloween treats without the worry.
  • Some scientific studies have been released regarding Celiac Disease.  In Oslo, researchers have put out a study in which waiting to introduce gluten to babies after 6 months of age may lead to celiac disease later on.  Another study from Sweden is showing that there is no link between Celiac Disease and autism. 
     We hope you get some good information, and you can always check out our gluten-free information page for some of the basics about gluten, Celiac, and Euforia Confections!

All the best,
