March is National Nutrition Month, and for many people, the best health includes following an eating plan catered to specific dietary needs. For some, this means eating gluten-free. Whether your gluten-free diet is a necessity or a general guideline, you may find baking bread at home to be a better option than the stale, crumbly options available on most grocery store shelves. And with a dedicated gluten-free bread machine, you can hope to avoid cross-contamination. Our gluten-free whole grain bread contains over 50% whole grains and is perfect for sandwiches, toast or bread pudding.
