Just received this press release from Pamela's, a great company that makes delicious gluten free mixes (along with awesome GF chocolate chip cookies). See my previous post about Pamela's 2009 gluten free recipe competition here.
PAMELA'S PRODUCTS ANNOUNCES NEW GLUTEN-FREE CORNBREAD MIX
VERSATILE BAKING MIX CAN BE USED FOR CORN MUFFINS, CORNBREAD STUFFING, CORN FRITTERS, HUSH PUPPIES AND MANY OTHER RECIPES
(Ukiah, CA--May, 2009) Pamela's Products, an award-winning leader in the gluten-free arena is launching a new Cornbread & Muffin Mix. Conveniently packaged in 12 oz. bags, the new gluten-free cornbread mix can be used to bake cornbread muffins, cornbread, cornbread dressing, sweet and savory tart crusts and many other delicious variations. With national distribution beginning in April 2009, Pamela's Products Gluten-free Cornbread & Muffin Mix will be stocked with major grocery chains and local natural food shops. It will also be available online at Amazon.com.
A staple in Southern cooking and a long time American comfort food, this cornbread baking mix provides a gluten-free alternative to this traditional food. The Cornbread Mix can be morphed into both savory and sweet recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All of Pamela's Products baking mixes may be used in place of wheat-based mixes in a family's recipe roster. The mixes were developed, by company founder Pamela Giusto-Sorrells, to be quick, easy and delicious, with minimal effort.
"It's important for me to produce delicious gluten-free alternatives for people who have to, or choose to, follow a gluten-free diet. Food is something that everyone should be able to enjoy, for every occasion. I created Pamela's Cornbread because cornbread is one of those foods that holds fond memories of my childhood. It reminds me of my family gathered around the table, quickly spreading our warm pieces with butter and honey before they cooled off! As we ate, melted butter and honey would drip from our fingers. Simple, warm and delicious!" states Pamela Giusto-Sorrells.
Pamela's Products are a tried-and-true staple for those on a gluten-free diet including Celiacs. Celiac Disease is the world's most common autoimmune disease, with the only treatment today being a strict adherence to a diet devoid of gluten. Gluten is most commonly contained in wheat (durum, semolina, kamut, spelt), rye, barley and triticale. (For more complete information, please visit www.gluten.net, "About".) People with autism spectrum disorders, cancer, wheat allergies, alternative diets, and even those adhering to a Kosher or 'natural' diet, also frequently turn to Pamela's Products for satisfying that sweet tooth or simply for making bread or pancakes.
