About befreebakers

Be Free Bakers was started out of love - for family and friends who have food intolerances or allergies. What began as a simple act of baking has turned into a massive attempt to change the way we look at allergen friendly foods - what goes into them, where the ingredients come from, the way the products are packaged, and how they are grown and distributed throughout the world. We have enjoyed this process tremendously and can't wait to share our journey and love for eating well and loving it!
