Tasty, nutritious, and affordable gluten-free eating from our family to yours
From our family to yours
Our story began in late 2009 when the last of our five siblings was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Unsatisfied with the current gluten-free flour on the market, we began to experiment on improving all-purpose gluten-free flour and ordered our first ton of flours and hydro-colloids (gums and add-on ingredients used to mimic some of gluten’s functionality).
We started formulating with the foundational beliefs:
Since those early days we’ve gone through about 200,000 pounds of flours and gums, along with several tons of eggs, sugar, and oils. We’ve produced over 120,000 loaves of bread, 240,000 buns, and hundreds of thousands of cookies, muffins, cupcakes, and pizzas.
The result: We’ve developed a superb gluten-free flour for thickening gravies and soups, as well as baking cookies, cakes, muffins, lefse, caramel rolls, flatbread, and more.
In 2013, Mehl’s Gluten-Free Flour Company was officially formed with the mission of sharing our experience with you. We’ll bake for you when you don’t have the time or inclination, and we’ll provide the ingredients and know-how for you to bake it yourself when you do.
Our story as a gluten-free family
The Mehl family has four Type 1 diabetic siblings, all five with full blown Celiac disease, and extended family with either Celiac Disease or gluten intolerance, several people that have allergies to dairy and or eggs, and we love to eat good food. That’s one of the reasons almost all our recipes provide options for a dairy-free and or an egg-free version.
When we get together for a traditional holiday meal like Thanksgiving, the entire layout will be gluten-free from the breads, rolls, stuffing and pies, most all of it will be dairy-free and we’ll even have some great egg-free options.
If you ate with us and we didn’t tell you it was a 100% gluten-free meal, you’d probably not even know. You’d just realize that you’d had a fantastic meal and wonder where you could get some of those recipes!
