I am so excited about the new Ryze Gluten Free Flour Mixes! They make two allergen-free gluten-free flour mixes that you can use for multiple purposes. One unique thing about these flours is that they do not contain any white starch such as tapioca, potato, arrowroot, or cornstarch or gum such as xanthan, guar, arabic, locust bean, or tara. I tested them both and share my results with you. I also created two recipes, one for each mix and share those with you as well.

Gluten Free Food Coloring
Food coloring is usually gluten free, but after reading an article about one person having a gluten reaction to a yellow food coloring that was confirmed to contain gluten, I always purchase brands labeled or sold as gluten free.
Food coloring comes in a few varieties such as powdered, liquid, and gel/paste. I don’t use any commercial brand of powdered coloring, but I explain all of the others available that I know are gluten free and safe for anyone to use. I even explain how to make your own at home.

While you would think marachinos would be free of gluten, they may contain gluten in their additives or from processing in a factory that processes gluten-containing products. Legally, they only need to disclose wheat, not barley or rye on their labels. If you find a jar of marachino cherries that does not disclose any wheat, go ahead and still contact the manufacturer to find out if it is safe for you to consume (if you are gluten intolerant). However, there are safe brands available.
I am thrilled to learn that you can now purchase marachino cherries that are free of artificial dies, corn syrup, preservatives. They are made in a facility free of gluten and the top 8 allergens. Royal Harvest’s has a line of natural marachino cherries without artificial colors, preservatives, Nature’s Marachino Cherries. Continue reading Are Marachino Cherries Gluten Free?
