Gluten-Free Standouts at the National Restaurant Association Show

Many of the 36 award winners at the recent National Restaurant Association in Chicago are gluten free - not surprising given the marketplace's growth. The 2017 Food and Beverage FABI Awards recognize innovative food and beverage products that make a significant impact in the restaurant industry. Some of these are sold in supermarkets, while others are only available at restaurants.

Gluten-Free Biscuit Sandwich from Kiki’s Gluten-Free Foods: The first frozen gluten-free biscuit sandwich now available in foodservice is a breakfast or lunch option for gluten-free consumers on the go. Individually wrapped in plastic to prevent gluten cross-contamination and available in a variety of options, these biscuit sandwiches can be microwaved from frozen or quickly baked and kept under warming lights for over an hour without getting soggy. You can order Chicago deep-dish pizza, ravioli, pita bread and lava cakes through the company's website.

Brazi Bites from Franz Bakery: Brazi Bites Brazilian Cheese Bread are crispy outside and fluffy inside. And because it uses cheese, eggs, milk and tapioca flour, it’s naturally gluten-free.

The Beyond Burger from Beyond Meat: The world's first plant-based burger that looks and cooks like fresh ground beef, The Beyond Burger is non-GMO, soy free and gluten-free, providing a way for consumers to reduce their red meat intake. Although completely plant-based, it cooks through like a regular burger with a better nutritional profile than ground beef,  including 20 grams of protein per serving.

Gluten Free Dough; Pizza & Hoagie Rolls Ready to Bake from Wild Flour Bakery: Artisan, small-batch and 100% yeast-raised, Wild Flour Bakery has created the only gluten-free pizza dough in the industry able to take the 900+ °F temps of wood, coal, gas or infrared ovens without parbaking or burned edges. The bakery's fresh, soft hoagie rolls are used at area Jersey Mike's shops.
