Alison St. Sure at celiac.com went to the Fancy Foods Show recently held in San Francisco and brought back reports of lots of the new gluten-free - and some lactose-free - products that will soon hit the market.
Here's a few of the more interesting ones she mentioned.
Conte’s Gluten-Free Pasta
While Conte’s Pasta isn’t new to the east coast, here in the west we hopefully will be able to find their gluten-free stuffed pastas in stores soon. Gluten-free ravioli, stuffed shells, gnocchi (also dairy-free), pierogis (there is a dairy-free flavor) and lasagna are just some of the items they make. They are a frozen product that come in a bag or, new in their product line, a microwave meal! I tasted the ravioli at the show, and it was delicious. I can’t wait to try the rest! These products are available online at the Gluten Free Mall.
Let’s Do Organic’s Gluten-Free Ice Cream Cones
It’s only January, but I can’t wait to try these new gluten-free ice cream cones from Edward & Sons’ brand. Not only are they gluten-free, but dairy-free and soy-free too. You should be able to find these now in Whole Foods.
3 Senses Gourmet's Gluten Free Chocolate Soufflé
The founder of 3 Senses Gourmet created a chocolate soufflé that happens to be gluten-free. If you are a chocolate lover, this dessert is amazing — a flourless chocolate cake with molten chocolate spilling out of the center. Look for the Chocolate Souffle and the Caramel Chocolate Souffle (yum!) in the frozen section of stores on the West Coast. Note: the Chocolate Chip Brioche Bread Pudding made by this company is NOT gluten-free.
