For those who avoid gluten and grain in their diets, for a whole spectrum of reasons, the pickings tend to be slim in terms of breads, pastries, and other treats – getting it right is tricky.
Good news: White Lion Baking Company in Mashpee knows what they are doing. We were reeled in by their not-too-sweet granola, but the options are many, including desserts, pizza crusts, and savory buns and rolls (try cheddar, onion and jalapeño!). White Lion (pale leo, get it?!) is a certified gluten-free facility dedicated to making grain-free, refined sugar-free, soy free and processed oil-free baked goods that are both delicious and nutritious.
Owner Elizabeth Miles, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, cut grains and gluten out of her own diet several years ago in order to feel better. That personal success led her to a passion for showing others that it is possible to enjoy a grain-free lifestyle and that eating healthfully doesn’t mean depriving yourself. Whether you choose to adopt a gluten/grain free diet or not, you can feel good about choosing White Lion. Visit them in Mashpee or look for their granola and crackers on the shelves of your favorite local market.
