More and more people are realizing that they are celiac or that their bodies are not able to handle gluten for various reasons. But many people love their carbs and are not sure how to live without them. For this reason, a gluten free bakery is a great option for alternatives. They have done all the experimenting and figured out what does and does not work in regards to making food items without gluten. There are many alternatives for those that do not want to go to a bakery for their gluten free items and want to try to make their own. Ingredients such as almond flour or coconut flour can be used instead but be aware that these may change the taste of the item you are making. For instance, coconut flour may add a bit of a coconut flavor to your bead which may not be the taste you want.
