Van’s Gluten Free Pancakes, Waffles and French Toast Review and Giveaway

I ran across Van’s Natural Foods on Twitter. I had no idea they made wheat and gluten free frozen breakfast products: waffles, pancakes, and French toast sticks. I was so pleased to find their products in my local grocery stores (Von’s/Safeway, Raley’s, and Whole Foods Market. Their wheat and gluten free products are also dairy-free and egg-free. While I wasn’t able to find all of their wheat and gluten free products (they make other products, as well), I did try a few, and they were fantastic!

The best part about their products, for me, is that they do not contain tapioca flour/starch, which I have discovered I am allergic. The textures are light; the flavors are bountiful; even their instructions are clear and easy. I was very pleased! For those allergic to corn, this is not a concern, other than the xanthan gum in their wheat free & gluten free pancakes. The Cinnamon French Toast Sticks and all flavors of their waffles contain guar gum, which is corn-free. My faves are the All Natural.

For those who are gluten intolerant you’ll be happy to know that Van’s Wheat & Gluten Free Products are certified gluten free by the GFCO (Gluten Free Certification Organization), subsidiary of GIG (Gluten Intolerance Group of North America). They certify that the products contain less than 10 ppm (parts per million) gluten from cross-contamination. The FDA’s suggested limit is under 20 ppm. Thank you Van’s for such a high quality gluten free product!

Van’s was not only generous in providing me with free coupons to try their products, but is sponsoring a giveaway for free product coupons to two lucky winners. Check the ingredients lists below and enter this fantastic giveaway! Good luck!
