As ever we are always on the search for a good 'free from' loaf and at the Natural & Organic Trade Show earlier this month we discovered a great little bread mix that is not only gluten and wheat free but soy, milk and yeast free too. So with an air of trepidation and a pinch of curiosity we headed over to the Sukrin stand at the show to see if their bread passed our taste test. And we were pleasantly surprised by what we found.
After going gluten free in 2009 Ann Perkins discovered a few things; first she started to feel a lot better and had loads more energy; second, she realised she had a lot less choice in food, and that a lot of gluten free food is inferior in quality and more expensive than the gluten containing alternative. So in 2011, Ann, together with Steven Turner, decided to give up their jobs and think of ways they could make life better for everyone who has to avoid eating gluten. And PERK!ER was established in 2012.
In our search for the best free-from bread we finally located a loaf of 'Yes! You Can' in a local supermarket. So it was with some excitement that we bought it to taste test - to see if it really does mean that 'Yes! We Can'. Advertised as 'Gluten free... and Tasty' our first impressions were very good as we took possession of a 'larger than most' sized loaf, that felt soft to touch. But what about the contents...
