With social distancing as the new normal, Americans are cooking and baking at home up to 46 percent more than before the pandemic. Bob’s Red Mill experienced double-digit growth nearly overnight as people stocked up on pantry staples like flour, yeast, beans and more. Baking mixes too have benefitted from the increased demand, and these grain free additions will appeal to paleo and gluten free consumers who want to bake without starting from scratch.
“We’ve heard from hundreds of our customers throughout the pandemic who used cooking and baking to relieve stress, entertain their families, or learn new skills in the kitchen,” said Bob’s Red Mill CEO Dennis Vaughn. “While some folks like to bake from scratch, others reach for our mixes for delicious treats that are quick to prepare. We developed this grain free baking line for those who want a nostalgic, better-for-you treat without the grains.”
Bob’s Red Mill Grain Free Baking Mixes are Non-GMO Project Verified, gluten free and paleo-friendly to suit a wide range of diet preferences. All are available for purchase online at www.bobsredmill.com and Amazon for $3.99–$6.49 per package. They will roll out on shelves at national and regional grocers across the country this fall and winter.
