What happens when it’s 1999, and a friend desperately asks for you help to find a gluten free/allergen free food for herself and her young son? Why, you make your own gluten free mixes! At least that’s what Daphne Taylor did, and Namaste Foods was born.
Things I love about Namaste Foods:
- Made in a dedicated allergen free facility

- Soy free

- Casein free
- Peanuts/tree nuts free

- Most are approved through the Whole Grain Council and Non-GMO Project

So much to love! The products are almost too many to name. They include:
- Devil’s food cake mix
- Dark chocolate brownie mix
- Quick bread & muffin mix
- All purpose baking mix
- Various individual flours for those who love to bake from scratch (such as organic quinoa flour, sorghum flour, millet flour)
- Muffin & scone mix

- Spice cake mix
- Vanilla cake mix
- Cookie mix
- Pasta/macaroni & cheese
- Seasoned coating mixes
- Vegan instant soups
- And so much more!
Namaste graciously sent me a few mixes to try. The Spice Cake and Pizza mixes were calling to me. First, I made carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. The spice cake was bursting with flavorful spices. I imagine it would make an excellent pumpkin cake, as well. Incredibly easy – combine the recommended ingredients along with a handful of chopped carrots and raisins. Lesser quality mixes come out rather gummy, but not Namaste – fabulous texture. The pizza crust was also easy to make and came out wonderfully chewy. Kris (a gluten eater) gave his approval.
Mixes are easy and convenient, but I also really enjoy baking from scratch. I recently made pizza dough (yes, more pizza) and used a variety of gluten free flours including Namaste’s quinoa flour, which is super high in nutrients. So far I’m loving their high quality mixes and flours, and I will certainly be back for more.
