As many of you know, my family and I traveled to Chicago this past July to attend a blogging conference. During our stay, I had the opportunity to connect with some wonderful brands and one of my favorites was Udi’s Gluten Free. They are the #1 gluten free brand in America and they create some delicious foods such as breads, buns, bagels, muffins, cookies and granolas. Prior to this, I had no idea that gluten free foods could be so delicious!
Aside from tasting great and being gluten free, Udi’s products are also all natural and made without any artificial flavors, colorings, preservatives or other synthetic additives. For those of you who don’t know, Gluten is a protein found in wheat that gives elasticity to dough, helping it to rise and keep its shape. Gluten is a combination of gliadin and glutenin, which is joined with starch in various grains.
A gluten-free diet can have many health benefits, such as improving cholesterol levels, promoting digestive health, and increasing energy levels, if you have a gluten intolerance. When you eat only gluten-free foods, you eliminate unhealthy oils from your diet, as well as unhealthy carbohydrates found in bread products like doughnuts and pastries. With Udi’s, you can enjoy some delicious foods while maintaining a gluten free diet.*
Now, although I am aware of the reported benefits of following a gluten free diet, we are not strictly gluten free in our home. I was very interested in reviewing Udi’s products to see if by removing gluten, one compromises taste. I’m happy to report that this is definitely not the case when it comes to Udi’s foods.
My boys and I tried Udi’s Soft & Chewy Ginger Cookies and their Pumpkin Muffins and they were delicious! Not only were they soft and tasted great, but they are also soy and nut free. I’m sure that this will also allow people who have allergies to these foods to enjoy these delicious treats from Udi’s.
To learn more about how to approach gluten free living and to learn about Udi’s promotions, make sure you like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter. They will teach you how to eat well and smile often!
