For those who are looking for gluten and grain free goodies manufactured in a dedicated gluten free facility, Shabtai Gourmet has products for you. The family owned company based in Woodmere, New York makes more than 18 beautiful and delectable treats including Apricot Rolls, Lady Fingers, Ring Tings Cupcakes, Chocolate 7 Layer Cakes, and Chocolate Chip Biscotti. Shabtai also makes “Pread Crumbs”, a grain free bread crumb alternative, a staple in my pantry. All Shabtai products are Dairy Free, Peanut Free, Soy Free, Lactose Free, Casein Free, Corn Free, Trans- Fat Free, and Certified Kosher.
Once upon a time these products were only available in retail outlets during the Passover season. I, like many others eagerly awaited the arrival of Spring, and Shabtai products. I always purchased extra goodies to stock my freezer, their products freeze beautifully! While I am not an advocate of processed foods, (and usually do not purchase them for my family), Shabtai Bakery products are the exception. The D-Man who is ultra sensitive to grains has never had a reaction after ingesting their products, and they always put a smile on his face.
Now for the good new; Shabtai has recently expanded their production and will be providing these goodies year round. Shabtai products will be available through the following retail outlets:
Acme, Shoprite, Wegmans, Price Chopper, Woodmans, Hillers, and Wild By Nature. You can also order on-line (as I have done in the past) if these retail outlets are not located in your area. Their website: www.shabtai-gourmet.com.
Shabtai has also announced that it will now be offering Birthday Cakes! These will need to be ordered in advance from the retail outlets listed above, but for those who don’t have time to bake, they make a beautiful and safe option for Gluten/Grain Free Birthday Celebrations.
Enjoy the sweet life, you can have your cake and eat it too!
