Overall, gluten free products have come along way in recent years, which is good news for individuals who are on a gluten-free diet to avoid the terrible side effects of Celiac disease. But even as a wheat-eater, I was impressed with the texture and crispness of Breton gluten free crackers, and my friends had no idea they were gluten free until I told them (surprise!).
So what is gluten? Gluten is a protein found in wheat that provides dough with elasticity, giving bread a chewy texture. Gluten can also be found in non-food products like cosmetics, hair products, crayons, and some medicines. Alternative flours, like chickpea flour, potato flour, rice flour, and many more, are used in place of wheat flour to create gluten free products. The Breton Gluten Free Herb and Garlic crackers are made with arrowroot flour and green lentil flour.
These Southwest Turkey Meatballs are the perfect party appetizer, and could easily be made into patties to create turkey burgers for the next backyard BBQ. Just remember the gluten free buns for your gluten free friends!
