Against The Grain Gourmet Against the Grain Gourmet

Against The Grain is committed to baking gluten free products using the natural properties of real foods. We combine innovative, artisan baking techniques with naturally gluten free ingredients to stabilize, bind, and leaven our breads. In fact, we don’t use a single ingredient that you couldn’t find in your own pantry. The result is a line of products with absolutely no compromise in taste, quality, and texture. We are a celiac-owned family business. Like you, we have to navigate our way through the maze of specialty and mainstream gluten free products, some excellent, some not so good, some we trust implicitly, some that have given us reason to doubt them.

We strongly believe in supporting our local economy and family farms. We buy all of our ingredients, supplies and services locally whenever possible and don’t cut costs at their expense. We work with Efficiency Vermont to source the most energy-efficient heating, cooling, lighting, and equipment, and we recycle vast amounts of cardboard, paper, and cans.

Choomi Cookies Choomis Gluten Free

Mass-produced cookies aren’t worth their weight in dough. We think if you’re going to treat yourself to a cookie, it should taste as good—nay, better—than homemade. That’s why we made the CHOOMI COOKIE.

Born in a kitchen—not a factory—our cookies contain no artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, or GMOs. We mix, roll, and bake each one by hand in small batches, using a special recipe developed by creator and expert chef, Peter Zinn, at his restaurant in Portland, Maine.

Only fresh, real ingredients come together to make a moist, flavorful Choomi cookie that will truly treat your taste buds.


Gillian’s Gluten-Free Gillian's Gluten-Free

My daughter Gillian was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 1992 when she was six years old. Click here for more information. As an infant she was plagued by anemia, colds, ear and other infections and had a general appearance of frailty. Small in size, she lacked muscle tone and coordination. It was a long and frightening journey to a definitive diagnosis, spanning several years and many doctors and hospitals. Yet knowing Celiac Disease is treatable and that Gillian with the proper diet would grow and develop normally was an incredible relief to her family.

Learning what foods were and were not safe was an exhausting process. Many additives are wheat-based and found in most common foods. Safe foods are flours and starches made from rice, corn, potato, tapioca, arrowroot, beans, peas, & nuts. Meat, poultry, fish, eggs, fresh fruits & vegetables, & dairy products without gluten-containing additives, flavorings or dyes are also safe.

For me, an executive chef, finding a palatable bread that would not fall apart in Gillian’s lunch box was my new mission. Much research and experimentation over several years finally resulted in a bread that Gillian gave a thumbs up. Gillian’s Foods is proud to offer what we think is the best gluten-free, lactose-free bread on the market today.


Homefree Cookies Homefree Cookies

We prepare all Homefree products with great care in our own dedicated baking facility. From kitchen design, to staffing, to ingredients, Homefree treats are made with allergy safety in mind.

No peanuts, tree-nuts, eggs, wheat, dairy, soy (except lecithin), fish, shell fish, or sesame are permitted in our facility for any reason at any time. The only soy in our facility and some of our products is soy lecithin, which is tolerated by most (but not all) people with soy allergies. Our kitchen is dedicated gluten-free as well. Our delivery area is separate from the kitchen, allowing us to wipe down all ingredient deliveries. And our well-trained staff members wear Homefree clothing and shoes to avoid carrying in allergen traces.

Not only do we keep allergens and gluten out of our own facility, but also we are careful about where our ingredients come from, including requiring allergen and gluten documentation from every ingredient supplier. And we go further. We conduct our own allergen testing for peanut, almond, egg, and milk proteins on our incoming ingredient batches. Additionally, we randomly test our cookies for these allergens and for gluten.

We hope you will be as comfortable eating from our kitchen as you are from your own.


Joe Tea and Chips Joe Tea and Chips

We are an independent company with a capital “I”. But that is about as far as the “I” goes because we are a “WE”. We are a family business that was started from the trunk of a Dodge Intrepid. That was many, many, many miles ago. We have a great team of associates, distributors, and suppliers who we ask a lot of, some of the best retailers on the planet and, of course, incredible consumers – without whom there would be no business.

“What makes your stuff so special”? A simple answer is “Have you tasted it”? We do our best to make mindbogglingly, great–tasting stuff that sports our retro logo, which you can generally spot from across a large room. For those of you already in the know, we thank you for your support…


Little Lad’s Little Lad's Gluten-Free

Little Lad’s Herbal Corn Philosophy — Vitamin B-1 is necessary for the digestion of carbohydrates, starches and sugars. This formula: oxygen plus B-1, plus enzymes, results in carbohydrate combustion. This same formula without the B-1 makes Pyruvic acid. This acid builds up in the cells and is particularly irritating to brain cells. Pyruvic acid contributes to mental dullness, peevishness, and nervousness. We at Little Lad’s know that a lot of people are eating white flour, white rice, white tofu, white pasta, and other vitamin deficient foods, so we thought we would make something whole grain to eat that is actually loaded up with extra nutrition, especially B vitamins. It seems like some people have become so simple as to not understand the complex, like complex carbohydrates. So to them avoiding whole wheat toast and a bowl of oatmeal is the same as avoiding a doughnut. Instead of trying to explain this complex issue to a vitamin deficient brain we just make food that even the most simple seem to enjoy. At Columbia University, two student groups were given capsules, one group was given B vitamins and the second group a placebo. In six weeks, the average grade of the first group was 27% better than the second group. In other words, they were getting better at handling the complex issues. So hopefully for them, as well as the rest of us, carbohydrates that are not stripped of their nutrition will no longer be “scary!!” This is so important to us that we spend as much or more on seasonings, as we do on the other ingredients, and still offer ours at competitive herbal corn prices. Try some Little Lad’s Herbal Corn or any other Little Lad’s product for that matter, or come to one of our restaurants. One meal is worth ten thousand words!!


Lucky Spoon Bakery Lucky Spoon

Hi, we’re Jim and Pam, the founders of Lucky Spoon Bakery. And our company is changing the way people think about gluten-free food.

Gluten-free has always been code for “taste-free” or “you can eat it but you probably won’t like it.” Until now. We’ve made gluten-free good … really good, in fact.

Pam has always had serious baking skills. So, inspired by her gluten-intolerant husband Jim, Pam set out to re-invent gluten-free. To serve up foods every bit as tasty as their fully glutenized counterparts. We think you’ll agree … she’s done it. In hindsight, maybe we should have named the company Lucky Husband Bakery.

From now on, Lucky Spoon Bakery will be synonymous with moist, fresh and delicious. Oh, and gluten-free, too. We are on a mission to share gluten free goodness with the world. We invite you to give them a try. At first, you may be motivated by the gluten-free part. But we think you’ll be back for more – because you can taste the love in every bite.


Maine Pie Company Maine Pie Company

Jill Miller has over a decade of baking experience under her apron. She owned The Runcible Spoon in Nyack, New York with her husband Lou for 11 years, a full service bakery specializing in flavorful homemade pies. Focusing on their family, Jill and Lou then moved to Kennebunkport, Maine. Eager to put her hands back in the dough, they opened Port Bakery, another full service bakery featuring the same outstanding pies Jill was famous for in New York.

Over the years, Jill heard more and more customers ask for a gluten free option. She decided to take matters into her own hands, creating a gluten free crust that’s not only moist and flaky, but delectably buttery too! Filled with an abundance of fresh fruit and the finest quality ingredients without preservatives or additives, Maine Pie Co’s pies are a delightful treat for everyone.

Jill and Lou have built a designated gluten free kitchen in Biddeford, Maine where they create all their lab certified gluten free pies and products.

Number 9 Chips and Salsa Number 9 Salsa

Our Number 9 line was created for those who love the taste of authentic salsa. Each variety is made with at least 9 healthy veggies and four to five varieties of peppers to develop a rich, well-rounded flavor that is unique. We use only authentic salsa ingredients in our recipes. Instead of vinegar, we use lime juice to impart a flavorful, citrus finish. No vinegar, no added sugar, no fat. Vegan. Wheat- and Gluten-free.

We developed Number 9 Tortilla Strips to be the best whole-grain and veggie chips you’ve ever tasted, and are certified gluten-free. Our process delivers a rich, well-rounded flavor with honest-to-goodness crunch. The reason our tortilla strips taste so good is the unique blend of veggies and whole grains that we use in our recipes. We use only High Oleic Sunflower or Safflower oils (vs. Canola or Soy) because these oils contain antioxidants which help preserve the fresh flavor and nutrient quality of our tortilla strips. The vegetables and whole grains in our strips contain naturally-occurring vitamins, minerals, and fiber that we all need to maintain healthy bodies.
