Frequently asked questions

What is gluten?

Gluten is the protein in wheat and other grains.

Why no gluten?

Because it makes a lot of folks sick.  A lot of people also feel better not eating gluten.

What is celiac disease?

A disease in which the small intestine is hypersensitive to gluten, leading to difficulty in digesting food.

What’s a vegan?

Vegan means no animal products whatsoever.  No eggs, dairy, butter or honey.

Why vegan?

Like we said on the homepage, we don’t have to be vegan, but we feel that among the health benefits of a plant based diet, being vegan helps lower the carbon footprint that factory farms and the meat industry creates.  Also, lactose is becoming one of the most common allergies.  

 And of course, we love vegetarians and vegans!

Are your products soy-free?

The majority of our products are soy-free. However, we do use a tofu “cream cheese” in some our our frosting and fillings, and our vegan marshmallows contain soy.

 

So, you guys got a storefront somewhere?

Not yet. We are currently work in a commercial kitchen in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago. We don’t have a retail counter, but you can pick-up orders by appointment.

 

Is your kitchen certified gluten free?

No.  Certification is a complex process. However, we currently work in a dedicated gluten-free kitchen, which means no gluten has entered the kitchen since it was built.
