About a month ago, I was sent some wonderful, complimentary samples of products made by Katz Gluten-free. We received Challah rolls, Chocolate & Cinnamon Rugelach and Chocolate Chip Cookies. Katz Gluten-Free products are certified gluten-free by the GIG. Some more info on Katz Gluten-Free:
Katz Gluten Free Bake Shoppe was established in early 2006 by F. Katz, with not much more than a home model kitchen mixer, some thoroughly tested recipes, and an unyielding quest for perfection. As word of our famously delicious confections rapidly spread, so did our base of operations.
Today, Katz Gluten Free operates out of a state-of-the-art facility, which has been Certified Gluten-Free by the Gluten Intolerance Group® (www.gluten.net) , for our unmatched reliability in complying with strict gluten-free standards. Our facility is completely nut-free and dairy-free. All of our products are certified Kosher, and are under the stringent supervision of the OU and Rabbi Y. Gruber.
As the mother of two children who are gluten intolerant, Mrs. Katz knows firsthand the hardships and daily struggles parents endure in their attempts to maintain a thoroughly gluten-free diet for their kids. She knows – as only a parent could – that the only way to minimize and avoid temptation, is by offering a variety of products that are rich in flavor, texture, and taste. That is why she constantly strives to concoct recipes that are as luscious as they are healthy.
We feature an extensive, ever-expanding selection of products, to meet the culinary demands of every gluten-intolerant individual. Our products consist only of pure, all natural high-quality and fresh ingredients, with no preservatives added, and are thoroughly taste-tested to ensure absolute goodness in every bite.
At Katz Gluten Free, we are truly passionate about our products and we hope that so are you. Our entire staff is committed to earning your satisfaction. We therefore welcome and anticipate your comments and suggestions. It is, after all, your input and feedback that have helped us achieve our goal of creating the most sought-after baked goods in the gluten-free market.
Are you looking to break free from gluten foods?
If you answered yes then you are absolutely in the right place. Just like you, we also love the smell of freshly baked bread. We anticipate every bite of a decadent chocolate cake. We also can’t stop eating delicious cupcakes. The problem is that gluten just doesn’t get along with us. That means that all the yummy delights like strips, muffins, cookies and challahs are off limits. Gluten foods can wreak havoc with a gluten sensitive person. The reactions can be mild to life threatening. So, like the rest of you who can’t eat gluten foods or have kids that can’t eat gluten foods, Mrs. Katz was left with very little choices. That’s why in 2006 she went on a mission. Armed with traditional recipes and the belief that gluten free food can taste just as good as gluten foods, she started her own gluten free trading company.
Our complete range of foods is certified Gluten Free
Everything in our menu is gluten free. Not only do we also make sure that it is dairy free and nut free. This ensures our customers health and well being. We are also very proud of our dedicated factory that only produces products that are not gluten foods. This means none of our menu items is effected by cross contamination from gluten foods. This is something most manufacturers should also be aware of. When gluten foods and gluten free products are produced in the same facilities, gluten from the production line can easily contaminate gluten free food. This can be very detrimental to individuals who need to be on a strict gluten free diet.
So when you try one of our cakes, challahs, cookies, muffins, strips, rugelech, breads, rolls, loafs or pizza crust you can rest assured that every step has been taken to safe guard your health and please your taste buds. Katz gluten free makes sure that it is gluten free and full of taste.
Cinnamon Rugelach -The original, famously delicious taste and rich cinnamon flavor of these rugelech make for a mouthwatering treat, which is perfect for dunking in a glass of milk.
Chocolate Rugelach -The original, famously delicious taste and rich chocolate flavor of these rugelech make for a mouthwatering treat, which is perfect for dunking in a glass of milk.
Chocolate Chip Cookies -Generous chunks of chocolate chips in this delicious cookie make it a favorite treat, when served with a glass of milk or on its own.
Challah Rolls – With an incredibly soft and fluffy texture and scrumptious homemade taste, our Challah rolls easily surpass the taste of regular Challahs. These delicious rolls do not crumble, and can go straight from the freezer to your table without being reheated.
I was unable to sample the Challah Rolls, as I can’t eat sesame seeds. Jon was able to eat the rolls with his burger. He enjoyed the roll, but did mention that it was a little dry. I am not sure if this was due to my freezing the rolls upon arrival or not. I defrosted slightly in the microwave & then toasted. Perhaps I should have defrosted on the counter at room temperature.
Both the rugleach & cookies were awesome. Great textures & flavors. If you made me pic a favorite, I would have to go with the Chocolate Rugelach! I had never had Rugelach before (even before going gluten-free), so this was a real treat.
