I concur with Michelle's message about discontinuing the 365 baking mixes, specifically the muffin mix. In the past I used the Gluten Free Pantry brand and they discontinued the cranberry orange muffin mix I enjoyed. I was extremely excited that I found the 365 brand muffin mix which I have been enjoying for the last year. In the response from whole foods is that the Gluten Free Pantry products will replaced the 365. I hope that it is truly just a name change and that the recipe used by 365 is what Gluten Free pantry will be using. Can you please verify if this is the case, otherwise the original Gluten Free Pantry products can be purchased almost anywhere. 365 was unique to Whole Foods and offered a variety of choices which were preferred to what GFP has been offering. Thank you for your attention

I am disappointed with gluten free whole foods brand products. They contain no gluten but other BAD ingredients. Also most gluten free if not all do not contain other allergens such as soy, dairy or corn Im surprised the product sells at all. whenever i pass the section it reeks as if its gone bad

Two of our five daughters have Celiac and Whole Food gluten-free baked goods have been a Godsend! They're so good the girls without Celiac want to eat them too!

The GF Bakehouse is awesome, and Chef Lee Tobin is not only a fantastic chef, but gracious and humble about all of the accomplishments of the Whole Foods Gluten Free Bakehouse. Thank you ALL for the great food you provide.

please, please, please be aware that many gluten free products are manufactured in plants that are not nut-free and that the smallest trace of these can cause an immense reaction to those many folks who are also allergic to nuts.

I was just curious when Wholefoods gluten free bake house will be coming to St. Louis? WholeFoods is doing a great job of stocking loads of gluten free products, but I do miss the freshly baked bread :( I have been diagnosed gluten intolerant about a year ago, but thanks to WholeFoods it made everyday life a bit easier.

I love shopping at whole foods. My whole family spends a lot of time there. A lot of time we end up eating dinner there but I struggle being wheat, corn and dairy free to get something hot to eat. The deli should make sandwiches with gluten free bread or the pizza oven should offer wheat free pizza. Please let me know if there is something besides salads that I can get.

Do you have gluten free bakery products that also do not have eggs or soy as I am allergic to all three?

There are no Whole Food Markets in our area. I wish we could order these gluten-free baked goods by e-mail. We could really use a Whole Food Market in the Stroudsburg, PA area. Thank You

This is just fantastic! I was just diagnosed with a Gluten Allergy and I figured food and grocery shopping would become a minefield! A friend recommended Whole Foods and I was delighted to find that there is one just 25 miles from my house! Thank you for all of your work on Gluten Free product!

I've had Celiac Disease over 15 years and the 365 Whole Food brand is the only product that even close to tasting like a full gluten food. I've tried the Gluten Free Pantry products and although they are "good" they do not come close to the greatness of the 365 brands. Kudos to Leo for his artistry, dedication and helpful contributions!

My husband purchased the chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting for my birthday, but threw away the label. Do they contain tree nuts? I have gluten and nut allergies. Thanks.

@Dani: Our stores get bakery items from regional bakehouses. Please contact your local store to find out ingredients for the cupcakes you purchased. Thanks!

This is really wonderful, it all started from one little recipe! It is amazing how big the demand for gluten free products is getting and it still continues to grow!

I have celiac disease. Yesterday, I tried a WF G-F Bakehouse 9" pizza crusts, with some vegetable toppings. The pizza tasted pretty good for G-F pizza, but a few hours later I was gripped by the most severe bout of unstoppable flatulence I have ever experienced in my entire life! My wife, who is not celiac and has a cast iron stomach, was equally affected. In looking at the ingredients, I see you use "white bean flour." Doubtless the bean this flour is made from is the cause of the gas pains. You really should find some thing to make this product with that is easier to digest than this particular bean flour product. FWIW, we eat a lot of bean dishes, make with different kinds of beans in our family--chili, baked beans, refritos, and so on--and this reaction has never been a problem. Come on you other celiacs out there! Report your experiences to WF and let them know what we want!

we live in northern ontario. and cannot access your very good. products. my wife just loves your bakehouse pie shells. they taste just like a sweet shortbread cookie. we are wondering if this product is sold in the Toronto Ontario stores. we first had them when on vaction in naple fl. My wife and daughter have celiacs and live gluten free, but it is hard to find good gluten free products in a small community. thank you for yours. it would be nice if these pie shells could be shipped to us. thank you.

@Earl We're so glad your family can find a GF product that they love! Since each of our Whole Foods Markets does things a little differently and stocks the shelves with an array of different products, the best way to get the most accurate information regarding the availability of the bakehouse pie shells is to reach out to your Toronto store directly. The link below will take you right to their contact information and a Team Member will be happy to chat with you about availability and possibly shipping. Thank you for your support! http://wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/toronto/
