There were many exhibitors alongside Shepherd Works at this year’s Gluten Free Expo, held on 26-27th August 2016. You would know many of the companies showcasing their GF goodies, as you can thankfully find them in our major supermarkets. So, we thought we’d put the spotlight on some of the smaller businesses doing great things and who were stand outs at the expo…
Teff Tribe: The small grain with a long history! The folk at Teff Tribe have a range of teff products, and for those of you who haven’t used this nutritious gluten free healthy grain before, go to the fantastic website www.tefftribe.com.au to see how to cook it and enjoy lots of great recipes using teff. The range includes Teff Grain Ivory, Teff Grain Brown, Teff Flour Ivory and Teff Flour Brown. Go for it!
Golden Pig and Co: Oh my! Potstickers – gluten free dumplings! Now you’ve fallen off your chair, you need to get back to reading this – yes, gluten free dumplings! The super-lovely Mum & Dad duo who developed these goodies named their company in honour of their daughter, Jordyn (who has lots of food allergies), who was born in the Chinese zodiac’s Year of the Golden Pig. With divine delectable flavours including: Pork and Snow Pea Sprout, Beef and Bok Choy, Spiced Ginger Beef, Tofu and Coriander, Chicken and Lemongrass, you will be in dumpling heaven!
