Leading Gluten-Free Bakery Little Northern Bakehouse Celebrates Third Year of Sponsorship of the Celiac Disease Foundation
ABBOTSFORD, BRITISH COLOMBIA (April 16, 2021) – Little Northern Bakehouse, a leader in gluten-free and plant-based breads and bakery products, announces its third year of sponsorship of the Celiac Disease Foundation, a national patient advocacy organization dedicated to accelerating diagnosis, treatments, and a cure for celiac disease through research, education, and advocacy initiatives. Together, they will better support the health and nutrition needs of the celiac community with their gluten-free and plant-based offerings.
An estimated one in 100 Americans have celiac disease, a serious autoimmune disease that occurs in genetically predisposed individuals where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. Currently, the only treatment for celiac disease is a lifelong adherence to a strict gluten-free diet.
Little Northern Bakehouse believes everyone should have the freedom to enjoy delicious food regardless of dietary restrictions. Therefore, all Little Northern Bakehouse products are light in texture and have the consistency, taste, and feel of the real thing.
With a diverse portfolio of gluten-free products including bagels, artisan pizza crusts, classic and sprouted loaves, buns, and the newest addition of organic gluten-free loaves, all Little Northern Bakehouse products are made with non-GMO ingredients and are free of gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, soy and sesame. Additionally, all Little Northern Bakehouse ingredients are voluntarily third-party tested to ensure they are free of glyphosate and other harmful pesticides.
“We are proud to receive such a positive response from the celiac community over the years, with our robust lineup of products and the extra effort taken to use non-GMO, plant-based ingredients that are certified gluten-free,” says Darren Mahaffy, Chief Marketing Officer at Little Northern Bakehouse. “At Little Northern Bakehouse, we’re dedicated to making products that don’t sacrifice anything in taste and texture, and we are excited to continue to bring these delicious gluten-free options to the millions of people living with celiac disease.”
“We are pleased to strengthen our relationship with Little Northern Bakehouse, a company that is dedicated to supporting those with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity,” states Marilyn G. Geller, Chief Executive of the Celiac Disease Foundation. “Little Northern Bakehouse continues to respond to the needs of the celiac community by expanding their range of gluten-free product options, and we look forward to what we will accomplish together in the coming year.”
