Is it easy to Add Gluten-Free items to my menu or not a good idea - Page 4

post #46 of 50

I will accommodate sensitiveness, but not allergies. Completely irresponsible, imo, for a baker who is not properly set up to advertise anything-free.

i'm just really glad there are bakeries (and products) dedicated to allergen free and who do it the right way--because in my experience the moms of these kids have been understandably but intrusively aggressive to give their kids the same food experiences as non allergic kids--but i will never understand the risk they were willing to take-- glad that period is over.

 

it only takes a handful of 'em pressing hard-- with the potential that their child might die as a result-- to be the giant baking buzzkill

 

more power to allergy friendly bakers! you rock! 

even though some (one) of you might get on my last nerve  :lol:  but still

 jk jk jk kinda sorta

How are they being intrusive?

I put right on my website that I cannot accommodate gluten allergies, or any allergies for that matter. My products also have a label with ingredients that says while peanuts may not be an ingredient, I don't guarantee they're peanut-free. There is always a risk of trace amounts of anything - and trace amounts can hurt someone with a severe allergy. I won't risk the health of my customers.

 

More power to someone who has the done the research and prepared their kitchen/prep area to be safe for gluten-free, but I hope to God bakers don't just "throw some gluten-free items on the menu." If you're out there and reading this, STOP! STOP NOW! :smile:

were intrusive

 

they wouldn't take no for an answer, and pleaded, a lot and repeatedly--and dang but baking is fun as opposed to life and death--and i just didn't have the spizzerinctum for that--they did wear me down but i would not budge--

 

i'm real sorry their munchkins got left out but not my problem--the mom's were the problem--they thought i was a softie and they could get their way.  not.
