Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We do have several products free of dairy, they are: · Honey Oat Bread · Carrot Cake · Molasses Ginger Cookies · Morning Glory Muffins · Almond Cookies · Fruit and Nut Granola (available in the South region only) · Vanilla Frosting - Coming Soon · Chocolate Frosting - Coming Soon · Chocolate Cake - Coming Soon · Yellow Cake - Coming Soon Our only item free of both dairy and egg products is our Fruit and Nut Granola. This item does contain honey, so some will not consider this item vegan. For a given product, we generally are guided by the sensory quality of the finished item. Several of our products are free of various allergens, and we include versions in our product development tests that eliminate one or more allergens. We will always choose the version that meets our standards for taste, texture, and overall quality with as few allergens as possible. I have passed your suggestion along to our Research and Development team, to keep in mind while developing future products. Your local Whole Foods Market store may carry vegan/gluten-free items from another vendor, please check with a Team Member for more information. For more information on our product line, including nutritional and ingredient information please visit our website: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/products/gluten-free.php

I was diagnosed with Celiac November 9, 2009. If I didn't have Wholefoods, I just don't know what I'd do. There is simply no other store like it. Thank you Lee!!!!

unfortunately, all of these gluten free baked goods contain lactose, and gluten intolerance often comes hand in hand with lactose intolerance.

For all those looking for a gluten, egg, nut and dairy free treat - some Whole Foods' regions carry amazing brownies and cookies by Cookies...for me? If you haven't tried them, you should! And ask your Whole Foods to carry them as well!

Many people who have celiac, sensitivity to wheat gluten, are also sensitive to dairy(casein)and eggs. Why don't you create products that are gluten-dairy-egg free. These are the three most common food allergens!

Awesome! They don't have these delicious things at Whole Foods in Tampa. I'm a celiac as well; keep up the good work. Lori

Hey Lori, we keep these gluten-free baked goods in the frozen section. Perhaps ask at your local store in Tampa to see if they can help you find these and other great gluten-free products.

Was in my Whole Foods today (Naples, Florida) and they don't have your products. Actually went on a tour of the facility about a month ago and asked about GF products in the bakery area and was told that they don't have any, other than the Ezekial/Glutino vendor brands in the frozen food cases. How can I get your products?

Add my name to the list of those who have not only gluten intolerance, but soy, egg, and dairy. Would love to enjoy your products but so far unable to. Hope you will consider those of us who have these other needs. I have found that it is more common than not for GF'rs to have other food intolerances.

Dear Sir, It will be most helpful if you'd include open captions to this short film. Thank you. Janet

The video did not play for me either. I am also interested in purchasing Gluten free Italian bread...without the sweet taste of all your other sandwich bread and no dairy. I have a receipe that comes very close, except i couldn't find sorghum flour being sold in your NJ store. I substituted with another flour and it is great! Really thick hard crunchy crust, freezes well and the crust remains crispy and bread does not crumble, except a lot of work for a little bit of bread. If you are interested in the recipe, please contact me.

Are the Gluten-Free Bakehouse items available in stores in Colorado and/or Nevada?

You make great stuff. I just wish all the gluten free items I find in the Atlanta store were also available in my Winter Park Florida store. (the carrot cake is one item I am thinking of)

Lee, I'm so so thankful for you. I've tried most, if not all, of your gluten free items. Yum! You're a real blessing!! Thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication to helping us celiacs live a more fulfilled life. BRAVO!!!

Hi Karen. All of our stores carry at least some of our Gluten-Free Bakehouse or other comparable items. However, selection varies, so your best bet is to check with your local store for what they currently have in stock. http://wholefoodsmarket.com/stores

Any chance WF does or will make gluten free crepes? They would be really great! Please respond because I want to buy them, but couldn't find any.

The Whole Foods in Greenville, SC has no gluten free bakery items (except a few items in the freezer section) that are covered with frost. I asked a sales associate recently about gluten free and they did not seems to know what I was talking about. I was very disappointed.

Hey Lou, Our Gluten-Free Bakehouse products are sold as frozen items in most all of our stores. Sorry to hear that you encountered a Team Member that was not well versed on gluten-free dietary needs. Your best bet is to check in with Customer Service next time you're in the store and they can help direct you to all of our gluten-free options in your local store in South Carolina. Thanks!

Just wanted to send along my heartfelt thanks to you all for this. Directly after my diagnosis, I traveled to my local Whole Foods (a long...1/2 mile away :) ) and asked a customer service person to help. She was amazing. Took me through the store, told me her faves and what customers have commented on, showed me the bakehouse freezer, etc. Awesome. I was in WF the other day and there was a TOUR of GF folks going through the store with another customer service rep. Great work and I'm sure you'll see your hard work reflected in sales!
