Bring the GFAF EXPO to Your Doorstep With Send Me Gluten-Free

The Gluten Free Marketing Group (the folks who bring us the Gluten Free and Allergen Free Expos) has done it again. This time they are bringing products right to your home with a new offering called Send Me Gluten Free. I was lucky enough to receive a free sample to find out what it's all about (and you can get lucky too -- see coupon below).

If you've ever been to a GFAF Expo, you know what I mean when I say that it's a ton of fun to walk around and find new and exciting products (as well as your current faves) to try. That's the same feeling I got when this box arrived at my front door:

The box I received was exactly the same as what they sent to the Send Me Gluten Free subscribers. Everything inside is gluten-free, and most were also free of other top allergens, varying by product. Depending on your specific food allergies, some products may be more or less suitable for you.

This is what I found inside:

Black Bean Spaghetti from Explore Asian Authentic Cuisine contains only black beans and water. I have tried this one before and it wasn't a hit. I may have to try it again.

TeeChia sustained energy cereal is made with gluten-free oats and a variety of fruits and seeds (made in a facility that also processes tree nuts -- otherwise top-8 free according to the ingredients label).

This Sevierly Good organic traditional bread mix is the product I am most wanting to try. The mix is top-8 free (using a standard rice/potato/tapioca flour blend). The add-ins call for eggs or egg replacer (I'd choose Ener-G egg replacer for this one).

I don't usually think of hot beverages as an issue for those with food allergies, but single-serving samples of coffee and tea were included.

A couple of small snacks and a lipstick sample from Red Apple were also included. The Raw Rev bar contains tree nuts.

I also found a sample of gluten-free soy sauce. Yes, it contains soy. (I'm still waiting for someone to come up with a soy-free soy sauce.)

There were also a handful of coupons (some for products in the box and others for other deals to explore -- including a free issue of Delight Gluten Free magazine).

All in all there were a variety of products. If you want to try them yourself, check out the various subscription plans for Send Me Gluten Free and use code: BLOG20 to receive 20% off of your order.

I keep meaning to ask if liquid aminos are safe for you, Colette? I am hearing a lot of people use it as a soy free soy sauce substitute.

Homa, liquid aminos are made from soybeans. I think they are used as a gluten-free soy alternative. Also some consider them healthier than soy sauce (no msg, all gmo) but alas, still soy.
