Baking gluten-free doesn’t have to be a hassle, and with Cup4Cup, it couldn’t get any easier – or more delicious!

Keep reading to find out more…


THE COMPANY:
Cup4Cup was founded by Chef Lena Kwak, who developed the products while serving as Research and Development Chef in the kitchen of the famed French Laundry in Yountville, CA. She and her mentor, Chef and Owner Thomas Keller, knew they had stumbled upon something special when a guest tasted Lena’s gluten-free brioche and cried with joy because she hadn’t tasted bread in seven years. They knew this was a product that had to be shared.

Today, Cup4Cup isn’t just great-tasting gluten-free flour, it’s a great-tasting flour for everyone. The name comes from Cup4Cup’s ingenious ability to replace all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour in traditional recipes, cup for cup, making baking something that everyone can once again enjoy.


THE PRODUCTS:
Cup4Cup has developed complete blends of multi-purpose, gluten-free flours and baking mixes that can literally replace all-purpose wheat (or whole wheat) flour “cup for cup.” By focusing on neutral flavor, texture, and performance, attributes often deficient in gluten-free flours, all of the Cup4Cup products are not only simple to use, but amazingly delicious.

With two flour mixes, including Cup4Cup’s Wholesome Flour (equivalent to your typical whole wheat flour but with lots of additional healthy nutrients) and their Original Multi-Purpose Flour (which has the taste, texture and performance of regular flour), your gluten-free baking will not only be easier, but tastier than ever with these easy to use flours.

Cup4Cup has also introduced Baking Mixes to their line, including a Gluten Free Pancake & Waffle Mix, a Pizza Crust mix and a Brownie Mix, all of which are easy to use and absolutely delicious as well.


NUTRITION-WISE:
100% gluten-free, non-GMO and produced in a dedicated, Celiac Support Association-certified gluten-free facility, Cup4Cup takes you, your health, and your gluten allergies seriously by delivering products that are certain to be as safe – and as tasty – as they claim to be. Moreover, many of their products are also dairy free and contain lots of healthy additions, like golden flaxseeds and rice bran, which not only give you extra fiber and Omega-3 fatty acids, but help to make Cup4Cup’s product a healthy and versatile option for cooking and baking.

*Cup4Cup makes flours and baking mixes for kids and adults of all ages, although I personally don’t give my infants breads and flours until at least 10 months (since eating is more of a learning process at this point and getting them used to fruits and vegetables and whole, unprocessed grains is the prime goal). Furthermore, several of Cup4Cup’s products do contain milk powder, so if you or your littles are lactose intolerant, please be aware. There is also quite a bit of sugar in their Brownie Mix, so eat and serve accordingly.


WHERE TO BUY:
You can purchase Cup4Cup products on Vitacost (where you get $10 off your first $30 purchase) , or to find the retail location nearest you, please visit their Store Locator.


FINAL THOUGHTS:
While I do love baking, measuring out every ingredient totally from scratch can be daunting – not to mention expensive – especially when you are trying to make something that is both healthy and delicious. Plus, you usually have so many leftover ingredients that the either go bad or get thrown out before you get the chance to use them all, which of course adds to the expense even further.

Well thankfully there are companies like Cup4Cup that take all of this into consideration. Developed by world-renowned chefs (so you know it has to taste good!), Cup4Cup’s flours and baking mixes really are of exceptional quality and take out much of the anxiety that can be associated with baking [healthier] foods. Plus, they have a whole list of gluten free recipes on their website, helping make your baking aspirations come to reality even easier. 

And although they are quite expensive, even when compared to other gluten-free flours and mixes, you can be certain that you are getting what you pay for. Plus, if you are trying to impress, then nothing will do it more then the baking mixes from Cup4Cup!

Try one or all of Cup4Cup products today and see for yourself how gluten-free baked goods can taste even better than the traditional ones!
