Variety in the diet is a good thing, we believe that applies to baking as well. A plethora of different flours from grains, nuts and seeds go into our creations.
We're Serious About Our Pantry
At VNB, we do not use any gluten-containing flour (from wheat, barely or rye), and instead focus on a variety of other grains like buckwheat, brown rice, sweet rice, Canadian GF Oats (glyphosate-free) and fibre-rich sorghum, along with a variety of seeds, coconut, tapioca and non-GMO potato starch. We grind about half of our flour in house and many of our ingredients are organic!
We avoid the use of xanthan gum as it is highly processed. When a binder is necessary we use eggs, psyllium or ground seeds, and sometimes guar gum as it's in our coconut milk and is more natural.
For sweeteners we opt for unrefined organic evaporated cane sugar, along with brown cane sugar, as well as maple syrup, honey and dates. Our baking soda and baking powder are both aluminum-free!
We use organic natural peanut butter along with free-run eggs. We choose sustainable paper packaging as much as possible and our parchment paper contains natural vegetable wax.
Because we use nuts and seeds in many of our products we cannot accommodate for nut or seed allergies. Please inquire about any other allergy concerns you may have.
It is a pleasure baking for you!
