Sunset’s Gluten-Free Expo is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to eat better or who is looking to eliminate gluten from their diet to learn about and sample great gluten-free products. Whether you or someone you love is allergic to gluten or you just want to eat more mindfully, Sunset’s Gluten-Free Expo is the event for you. The Gluten-Free Expo is at Sunset Highland Park on October 11, 2014 from 10am to 3pm.
Sunset believes that going gluten-free shouldn’t mean sacrificing quality or flavor. With this in mind, Sunset has chosen vendors and products for the Gluten-Free Expo that are sure to please every palate. Sweet and savory foods of all kinds will featured at the event.
For many, eliminating gluten from their diets means avoiding baked goods and desserts. However, there are many delicious gluten-free dessert options available, including products from Wow Baking Company and Carol’s Cookies, both of which will be featured at the Gluten-Free Expo.
Another thing many gluten-free eaters often find themselves giving up is convenience, but with products like Applegate’s easy-to-prepare chicken nuggets, Cooksimple’s healthy boxed dinners, and Miracle Noodle’s shirataki noodles, they certainly don’t have to.
The breakfast aisle also poses many obstacles to going gluten-free. Luckily, Freedom Foods cereal and Viki’s granola are both gluten free and are perfect for kids and adults alike.
Other vendors whose top-notch products will be featured at and available for sample at the Gluten-Free Expo are Sexy Pop, Popchips, World Peas, Lesley Stowe Raincoast Crisps, Foodie Fuel, Roland Foods, and Amy’s Kitchen.
Sunset Foods Highland Park is located at 1812 Green Bay Road, Highland Park, IL, 60035.
