36 years ago, Joan's eldest son was diagnosed with Celiac disease. There were very few resources available in the early 1970’s. After many failed attempts at baking for him, Joan gave up. She used whatever was commercially available at that time.
When Joan's grandchildren were born, and exhibited the same symptoms, She dusted off her mixmaster and began again in earnest. After many years of baking and throwing out, she succeeded in developing an entire line of outstanding baked goods that are indistinguishable from wheat based products.
Joan's goal was to provide her grandchildren with all the foods that other children could enjoy. They had to look and taste like the real thing, because they were under the scrutiny of the most demanding critics, young children.
Most importantly, they had to be not only delicious, but healthy as well. No additives or preservatives are ever used, no trans-fats, and of course, no wheat or gluten. They also can accommodate dairy-free and soy free requests, whenever possible.
Joan's products have passed many taste tests, but none as important as the all thumbs up response at a third grade birthday party in school!
