We have had several customers tell us the same thing...when they ask about this I start by explaining our baking process and how we protect against cross-contamination before I tell them the kitchen is not dedicated GF. Every GF customer who had these concerns went ahead with the order after I explained our process.

I appreciate your comments jason_Kraft, but you ran an allergy friendly bakeshop so you can certainly appreciate the seriousness of food allergy and intolerance. People who don't have experience or real understanding about food allergies and intolerance can be scary for those of us with food issues. They are not to be taken lightly. Just going to a restaurant for dinner is difficult as you know. We have to ask a million questions and we know when people don't really "get it".

The OP'er doesn't seem to have much experience or knowledge in this area, so she needs to seriously educate herself. Making people ill from reactions can open you up to a whole new can of worms. I certainly appreciate everyone who becomes well educated about food allergy/intolerance and takes it's seriously. It makes the world easier for all of us with food issues to navigate. The scary thing is people think this is a fad or some niche market and to those of us with food issues it most certainly is not.

I wish her all the best in her GF adventure but she needs to really understand the seriousness of it.

Take Care & Good Luck & Do Lots of Research
