In 2008, we began baking for a deliciously simple reason: to share the joy of bread with friends who couldn't eat it.

So we went to work at the back of our little bakery on Toronto’s Queen Street to find exactly what it takes to capture the flavour and feel of classic breads without any gluten, nuts, dairy or soy. We experimented. We taste-tested. We simplified.

And as soon as we shared the first bites, we knew we had something special: delicious bread that just happened to be gluten-free.

Now more a decade later, our bakery has gotten a lot bigger, but our values are the same. We bake for all, so that everyone has the chance to love great bread as much as we do.

You can find find our loaves and buns across the country at supermarkets and specialty stores that share our passion.

A few carefully chosen ingredients.

No gluten. No preservatives. No exceptions.

All of our baked goods are crafted from a mix of gluten-free flours for the flavours and textures you’d find in old-world gourmet bread. Because we only use a handful of wholesome ingredients, each one makes a big difference. From white beans to cinnamon, our products are packed with nutrition, taste and not much else. That’s what we mean by deliciously simple.

Our dedicated gluten-free bakery allows us to meet the growing demand for our breads without compromising the highest level of consumer safety and quality. Whether made fresh to order for our customers or delivered to exceptional stores across Canada, every batch is baked with love.

Cinnamon: Antioxidant Properties

Scientific studies have shown that the antioxidant and antimicrobial properties of cinnamon offer numerous health benefits, including improved glucose and lipid levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes. Some research has shown it may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and might even help treat Multiple Sclerosis. This nutritionally powerful spice doesn’t stop there: it’s also full of iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium.

Sorghum Flour: Rich in Health-Promoting Phytochemicals

Sorghum is a naturally gluten-free ancient cereal grain full of health benefits. It contains high levels of unsaturated fats (good fat), protein, fibre and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, potassium and iron. Remarkably, sorghum has been found to contain more antioxidants than blueberries and pomegranates. Studies suggest that certain phytochemicals in sorghum help reduce the risk of certain cancers more than other grains. It has also been shown to lower cholesterol and support cardiovascular health. Who knew a grain could do all that?

Millet Seed: A Good Source of Magnesium

Millet seed is a wholesome, creamy and delicious ancient gluten-free grain. It is a good source of dietary fibre, iron and vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine). It provides protein and potassium. Most importantly, this grain is a rich source of magnesium. Studies have shown magnesium can help reduce chronic pain, the severity of asthma and the frequency of migraines. It’s excellent for cardiovascular health and even helps to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.

Honey: Antibacterial Properties

Consumed in moderation, honey has several buzzworthy benefits. Studies have shown it contains antibacterial properties, thanks to the diligent worker bees who make it. Honey is scientifically known to help fight numerous bacterial strains, such as E. coli and salmonella, staph and even the bacteria that cause H. pylori and peptic ulcers. You better bee-lieve it (…sorry).

Inulin Fibre from Chicory Root: Linked to Digestive Health

Inulin is a soluble dietary fibre that is found in certain plant foods such as chicory root. Some people take chicory root daily as a nutritional supplement. Inulin has been associated with improved digestive health, such as decreased constipation, improved nutrient absorption, increased beneficial gut bacteria, and better overall immune health. Several studies have even suggested that inulin may improve blood sugar control in people with pre-diabetes and diabetes. Now isn’t that sweet.
