As more people are becoming aware of gluten-intolerance, providing gluten-free options has become increasingly popular. One Los Angeles ‘Homeroom Mom’ often bakes Pamela’s Products Chocolate Cake Mix Cupcakes for her son’s class. Even though the class is not gluten-intolerant, her cupcakes were consistently voted best by the kids. According to this mom, “Birthday parties used to be difficult. It's heartbreaking to have to explain to your child that they can't have birthday cake with all of the other kids. So I started experimenting with every gluten free recipe and mix to find the best one - Pamela's chocolate cake mix. Now I bring extra chocolate cupcakes to every party and everyone loves them.”
Approximately 1 in 133 people are Celiacs and suffer from gluten-intolerance but only 3% of cases are diagnosed. Celiac Disease is the world’s most common autoimmune disease, with the only treatment today being a strict adherence to a diet devoid of gluten. Gluten is most commonly contained in wheat (durum, semolina, kamut, spelt), rye, barley and triticale. Gluten is present in almost all forms of traditional bread and baking mixes and baked goods.
Pamela’s Products offers an entire dedicated line of gluten-free baking mixes and baked goods. Pamela’s Products Simplebites and organic cookies are a great addition to any child’s lunchbox.
