It has only been in recent months that I realised how common celiac is and how limited the food offerings are for foodies that are gluten intolerant.
My understanding of gluten free foods and the processes involved was limited until we opened our Crust. It is was then that I realised the extra time and care taken to make a gluten free pizza is twice that of a normal to prevent ingredients containing gluten from being passed on. Knowing all of this, I now have a great appreciation of the processes that the gluten free factories go through to ensure their products are 100% gluten free and as close in taste to products containing gluten.
So when I heard there was a gluten free hot cross bun range available at Coles throughout Australia (list of stores available on Momentum Foods website) I was curious to learn more and to find out if it tasted the same. I received a frozen pack in the mail last week and was surprised it tasted fairly close to hot cross buns with gluten.
Texture was a bit different but I found if you heated it for longer it becomes softer. I am told the Simply Wize Gluten Free Hot Cross Buns ($5.99) are made in a 100% gluten free factory to ensure the most gluten free products possible.
