Jo-Sef Gluten Free Cookies

Posted in Featured Brand on September 8th at 12:33 pm

Jo-Sef Gluten Free began very simply as a parent’s search to find and create great-tasting, healthy, and gluten free alternatives for a child suffering from celiac disease. However, as word spread about the delicious treats coming out of the Jo-Sef kitchen, this personal mission has grown into something much larger. After years of painstaking research, experimentation, and taste-testing, Jo-Sef’s has developed a line of scrumptious gluten free cookies that combine great taste with an authentic, satisfying crunch. Every Jo-Sef cookie is baked with the discriminating palate in mind using only premium ingredients. Additionally, not only are all Jo-Sef products gluten free, they are also wheat free, nut free, dairy free, lactose free, egg free, preservative free, kosher, and vegan. It is because of this commitment to health and excellence that Jo-Sef Gluten Free has developed a reputation as the “go-to” place for the tastiest gluten free baked goods around!

A commitment to simplicity and clean eating is at the core of Mikey’s Muffins.  This driving force has led the company to develop a Gluten Free, paleo friendly option for those whose food allergies or health restrictions have prevented them from enjoying bread products in the past.  By eschewing grains in favor of the rich flavor and versatility provided by almonds, Mikey’s Muffins has created a low calorie, toastable english muffin with a great taste and authentic texture.  Available in Original, Cinnamon Raisin, and Toasted Onion varieties, all Mikey’s Muffins are certified Gluten Free and Kosher and contain no dairy, soy, or grain.  In fact, Original variety muffins are made with only six all natural, clean ingredients.  As versatile as they are delicious, Mikey’s Muffins can be enjoyed straight from the toaster, but are also fantastic slathered with protein-rich nut butters or used to create paleo friendly, low-carb sandwiches.
