Product Recall

Kinnikinnick has recalled a number of products because of  unlabelled milk in the products. There is no gluten in the products.

The  recalled products are Kinnikinnick Original Homestyle Waffles;  Kinnikinnick Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Homestyle Waffles; Kinnikinnick  Kinni-Kwik Bread & Bun Mix; Kinnikinnick Panko Style Bread Crumbs;  Kinnikinnick Pancake & Waffle Mix.

Consumers with a MILK allergy should return these products to the place  they purchased the product; customers who do not have a milk allergy can consume  these products in safety.

It should be noted that this problem was identified by  Kinnikinnick’s own internal ingredient testing problem. Kinnikinnick determined  that another ingredient contained milk allergens that were not listed by the  manufacturer of that ingredient.

Kinnikinnick has posted details on their blog (http://blog.kinnikinnick.com/2014/01/routine-testing-of-ingredients.html)  and you can find a full list of all the affected products on the CFIA web  site:  http://www.inspection.gc.ca/about-the-cfia/newsroom/food-recall-warnings/complete-listing/2014-01-10/eng/1389416979298/1389417006118

This  recall may lead to recalls of other products who use the same ingredient in  their products. We will send notices of any other high priority  recalls.

Timmy’s Introduces GF Snack

For those of us with celiac disease, grabbing a quick prepared snack when we’re on-the-go is not a simple task, as hidden sources of gluten in product ingredients are always top-of-mind.  To help make that choice easier, Tim Hortons is now offering a new Gluten-Free Coconut Macaroon – the first menu item in a Canadian quick service restaurant to be certified gluten-free through the Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) Gluten-Free Certification Program.

The new Gluten-Free Coconut Macaroon is a meringue-style cookie made with real coconut and drizzled with milk chocolate, and is sold in a pre-wrapped two-piece package to avoid cross-contamination. It’s available at Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada for $1.29.

Buttermilk Belgian Waffles

Belgian waffleIf you don’t already have a waffle maker, you might think about getting one.  One of our readers, Sandra, has sent us this recipe for delectable Belgian waffles.  It’s quick, easy and of course, gluten-free.

“I started making these waffles for my teenage son.  Soon his friends were starting to invite themselves over for sleepover parties just so they could have my waffles in the morning.”

“They don’t care that they’re gluten-free”, Sandra explains.  “Just top them with butter and syrup and they’re fantastic.  To make them special, top with yogurt and fresh fruit, or hit it right out of the park with whipping cream.”

Here’s Sandra’s recipe.

  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch or corn starch
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs or or 1/3 cup egg substitute
  • 1 and 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat waffle iron to desired setting.  In a large bowl, mix together the flours, starch, baking powder, salt and sugar.  In a separate medium bowl, beat the eggs. Add the buttermilk, oil and vanilla and mix well.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until well-combined and moistened.  Cook according to waffle maker’s directions.

This recipe makes about 3 large Belgian waffles.  Serve immediately with your favourite toppings.
