This lovely cafe can be found around Sweet Water Lake in Koh Phangan. Their menu offers a range of organic vegan and gluten free items. Continue reading
As I write this post, I am currently hiding under the cover of this funky restaurant. When I arrived to the island a couple days ago, I was intrigued by the signs on the road that boasted organic and healthy farm to table fare. Really? In Koh Phangan?
In the box this week: carrots, zucchini, lemon, chilies, kale, bok choy, passion fruit, lettuces and lemon grass.
Recently I had a conundrum.
This soup is available in my local Villa, but due to the Thai ingredients sticker I could not surmise if this product is in fact, gluten free. I contacted Health Valley Organic just to be sure, and received this reply:
Consumer health and safety is our number one concern. We do not have lists of products that are specifically considered to be gluten free. Reading the label is the best way to check for the presence of ingredients which contain gluten. If gluten is a major ingredient, it will be specified in the ingredient list. For consumers concerned about the presence of trace amounts of gluten, we suggest avoiding products that include natural flavors or spices.
Hain Celestial Group products that make a gluten-free claim will carry the triangular Gluten-Free symbol, be labeled gluten-free, or specify Gluten Free certification by GFCO. To learn more about the wide variety of gluten free foods we offer please visit www.glutenfreechoices.com. We hope you find the information, recipes and articles to be a useful resource.
How interesting! That rules out all of their soups then! The website provided gives an idea about their other products:
And I must add that I am not so impressed anymore. In a previous post, I commented that the De Boles pasta was awful and I’m not a fan of the Arrowhead Mills pre-made mixes (pizza, pancake and bread).
However, I am a fan of their Organic flour mixes – Buckwheat and both White & Brown Rice. Plus, the Terra mixed vegetable chips are a nicer and more nutritious snack than Lays potato chips!
