What precautions do you take to prevent cross-contamination?
We are acutely aware of the risks involved with cross-contamination. In fact that is why we produce a Gluten Free Certified kitchen that is free of the top 8 allergens and have extremely thorough commercial cleaning practices. We clean and sanitize everything between batches as an added precaution. All employees are trained on cross-contamination risks as well. It’s something we take very seriously and we’re happy to explain in further detail if you want more peace of mind on the matter.
My child is allergic to gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, corn, nuts, … can he eat better bites bakery products?
Yes! We make cakes, cupcakes, cake balls, bites, and brownies for people with multiple food allergies. The sprinkles on the vanilla and strawberry cakeballs do have corn in them, but otherwise, everything else is corn-free.
Are your products tree nut free?
No, some of our products are made with coconut milk, which the FDA classifies as a tree nut. We leave it up to you to decide whether or not coconut is safe in your particular circumstance.
Have your products been tested to prove that they are gluten free?
Yes! And everything passed the test! We currently have a policy with GFCO. They come out annually to do a site visit, as well as pull random product to test at our retailers.
Your products don’t taste gluten free (and everything else free!), what’s the catch?
No catch, we just use very high quality, certified gluten free ingredients and it shows in the taste. We also have spent countless hours in the kitchen trying to find the perfect blend of flours and substitutions to try to come up with the best tasting products possible. So, in short… the best ingredients and lots of practice!
