Whether you suffer from celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or a wheat allergy, you’ll find Elm City Market is one of the best places in New Haven to buy gluten-free foods and wheat-free foods.
Gluten is a protein complex found in certain grains that gives bread dough its stretchy, elastic texture. In people with celiac disease, the proteins trigger an immune response from the body, causing inflammation and damage to the small intestine. Those with gluten sensitivities can suffer similar but milder symptoms.
At Elm City Market, we’re making it easy to shop for gluten-free foods; just look for the blue “GF” shelf label in the store. You can create gluten-free versions of your favorite baked goods with an all-purpose flour blend, like those from Bob’s Red Mill or Arrowhead Mills.
