There are plenty of reasons to steer clear of gluten in your diet, and luckily, restaurants are wising up to the growing trend of diners looking to find healthy alternatives to wheat. January 12 marks National Gluten-Free day when we’ll be honouring restaurants and bakeries at the forefront of cooking up delicious, gluten-free treats.

If you are one of the 2.2-5 Million Canadians with a gluten disorder or at risk of celiac disease (, never sacrifice on the quality of your baked goods again when you order from one of these 10 gluten-free bakeries across Canada:

Panne Rizo was born in 1998, the product of a Vancouver couple with two children allergic to gluten. More recently, Alejandra Aguirre, previously one of Panne Rizo’s bakers, took over ownership of the bakery. She developed a fresh new menu that was aligned with her own dietary choices, experimenting with gluten-free and vegan recipes, alternative flour options, and natural sweeteners. This gluten-free bakery is celiac friendly – you never have to worry about cross contamination.
