The 123 Gluten Free Story Kim Ullner, founder and owner of 1 2 3 Gluten Free, comes from a celiac family. Her older sister was diagnosed with celiac disease when she was just three years old. Kim grew up helping with her sisters struggle handling the challenges of keeping a gluten- free diet. 1 2 3 Gluten Free was started in 2004, out of the need to have top-quality, great tasting, quick and easy mixes for her busy family to prepare. Many of the mixes are named for children in the family who are proud to see their names on store shelves. 1 2 3 Gluten Free is truly a family affair all members of the family, from the youngest to oldest, are involved in the business. The kids & their friends (celiac and non-celiac) are the first taste-testers before products are released. 1 2 3 Gluten Free mixes call for consumers to add common ingredients that are stocked in their home pantry. Each mix makes a generous portion and yields double that of most other brands. And our customers enjoy the versatility of the mixes. With over 150 recipes for the 15 mixes, and many submitted by our happy customers, the possibilities are endless. Come share our family favorites with your family.

Why 1-2-3 Gluten Free? Testing & Certification Elisa is the antigen/antibody method of testing for gluten. There are 3 generations of testing. The first is the Scaritt antibody and it weakly recognizes gluten from barley and does not recognize oats. The second type is the R5 antibody and it can show false positives. It does not recognize oats. The newest and third generation of testing is the G12 antibody and is the most sensitive to gluten in wheat, barley, rye and is sensitive to oats. This is what we use both in-house and through a third party (GFCO) who randomly audits our products. It tests down to 5 PPM.
Why 1-2-3 Gluten Free? Higher Standards When we say our products are gluten-free, they really are. Our certification and testing support this. Additionally, because our products taste so good, those who must maintain a gluten-free diet will not be tempted to cheat. In both of these ways, 1-2-3 Gluten Free products support consumers good health and your commitment to higher standards. Lower Prices 1-2-3 Gluten Free products are larger than other brands (generally yielding more than twice as much as other brands) and cost less per serving. Value and Convenience 1-2-3 Gluten Free products are the highest quality, all-natural gluten-free and allergen-free mixes available. They are versatile and easy to make.
Products OLIVIAS OUTSTANDING MULTIPURPOSE FLOUR MIX Cynthia Kupper, RD* stresses the importance of making sure that gluten-free consumers have adequate B-vitamins, iron and calcium in their diets. Often the gluten-free diet is deficient in these nutrients and so guidelines for those living with celiac disease include using fortified or enriched gluten-free products. 1-2-3 Gluten Free is leading the advancement to improve the nutritional quality of gluten-free products by fortifying Olivias Outstanding Multi-purpose Flour Mix TM. We are proud to introduce the first and only gluten-free multi-purpose flour mix that is enriched in the United States, with calcium, iron and B vitamins. It easily converts into cake flour and self-rising flour, and can be mixed into your favorite recipes. According to Connie Sarros, noted cookbook author and gluten-free expert, In the gluten-free world, this is a huge accomplishment. * Executive Director of the Gluten Intolerance Group and member of the American Dietetic Associations Evidence Analysis Team

Gluten Free Is Not Going Away People with wheat allergies, autism, and celiac disease (known as gluten intolerance) all benefit from a gluten-free diet. Gluten-free diets are not a fad for many, its medically-required. Many different types of consumers are trying to eliminate gluten from their diets, the most notable those suffering from celiac disease. One in every 133 Americans has celiac disease, which requires people to maintain a gluten-free diet. As diagnoses increase, sales of gluten-free foods will as well. Scientists estimate that approximately 12 million Americans suffer from food allergies, or one in 25. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, four out of every 100 children in the U.S. have a food allergy, a term described as a potentially serious immune response to eating specific foods or food additives. Diagnosis of the condition is clearly on the rise. From 1997 to 2007, the prevalence of reported food allergies increased 18% among children under age 18 years. The gluten-free market is rising rapidly. 2010 saw $2.6 Billion in sales. By 2015, this category is estimated to have over $5.5 Billion in sales. Other market researchers have indicated annual sales growth at nearly 15%.
