In March of this year, King Arthur Flour Company introduced gluten free baking mixes and a gluten free flour in several markets. Now these new mixes are becoming widely available in grocery markets around the country. We have not yet tested these mixes.
If you have tried them, we would love to hear your feedback. Email us from the Contact Us page or write a comment to this post.
Check out the gluten free pages on the King Arthur Flour website. They are proud of the work they’ve done and have clearly submerged themselves in the art and science of cooking gluten free. The ‘mix tips’ are useful – for example, “If you use a stoneware, glass (e.g., Pyrex), or dark metal pan to bake your brownies, lower the oven temperature by 25 degrees.” Now that is information we can use!
Beyond the wish to try these new mixes, we are excited that such a well established flour maker has come to market with an assortment of gluten free items. Like General Mills products, King Arthur Flour products are widely distributed making them easy to find.
We are thrilled with the addition of these products to the gluten free marketplace. Higher quality inputs to baking and cooking enables the downstream creation of a broader assortment of gluten free foods.
We will update this article after trying the new mixes and pass along any feedback we receive from readers.
