OMG…It’s Gluten Free! is a 100% gluten free bakery & café, serving the Chicago and area with a large assortment of delicious gluten free foods.Wheat was only developed 10,000 years ago. Before that, people ate lean meat, fish and vegetables. When wheat came on the scene, it was completely foreign. Human bodies have to adapt in order to tolerate it and a lot of people don’t tolerate it well at all.Current research suggests that as many as 1 in 100 people have celiac disease (CD) which is equal to 1% of all Americans or 3 million people, 97% of whom are undiagnosed. 1 in 22 people are estimated to have it if a parent, child or sibling has it. The average child visits 8 doctors before receiving a correct diagnosis.
It takes an average of 11 years to be diagnosed with celiac disease in the United States. 60% of children and 41% of adults diagnosed with celiac disease showed NO symptoms during the five years they were tracked for a multicenter study of celiac disease.
Wheat free doesn’t mean gluten free!
If your body has problems with gluten, the GF diet may help relieve a lot of symptoms such as:
* Gastrointestinal Distress
* Joint, Bone and/or Muscle Pain
* Respiratory Problems
* Weight Gain/Weight Loss
Many people who adopt a gluten free lifestyle feel better almost immediately, and not just those who have celiac disease or are gluten sensitive. Going gluten free can help with weight management and may also stabilize your blood sugar level, which eliminates mood crashes and sudden drops in your energy level. Gluten free eating may also help those suffering from headaches, acne, ADD, ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, skin disorders, infertility and more.
OMG…It’s Gluten Free! provides tasty, healthy, gluten free foods.

Pip’s Place Gluten Free Cakery
My daughter Olivia, who we nick-named Pippi when she was a little girl, was diagnosed with celiac disease when she was fourteen years old. Coming to grips with her new dietary restrictions was a challenge for Pip, but also for me as her mother.
As we learned together how to deal with her condition, I was inspired by her strength, determination and willingness to accept this new way of eating. I was determined that Olivia would not have to give up her favorites when it came to my baking. What ensued was a journey of discovery, as I learned to create wonderful recipes from gluten free ingredients. After just a short time on the new diet she commented to me, “Mom, do people really feel this good every day?” Success. Not only was she finally healthy and feeling well, she was doing so while continuing to enjoy her favorite baked treats. Eating gluten free is more than a diet – it is a way of life. Due to the risk of contamination, our entire house became a gluten free zone. With my new celiac-friendly recipes, Pip’s brothers. Drew and Bradley, didn’t know (or care) that all the baking in the house had become gluten free.
Olivia paid me a wonderful compliment before she left for college saying “with everything you baked for me, I have never felt deprived.” Pip’s Place is for Olivia and everyone like her with celiac disease or a gluten intolerance. You can safely enjoy homemade baking with confidence because there is no chance of cross contamination. At Pip’s Place, you can finally feel free to indulge again.

New Cascadia Gluten Free Bakery
New Cascadia Traditiona is a dedicated Gluten Free bakery. They only produce gluten free baked goods. They verify and source the ingredients to ensure that they are always safe.
The staff at New Cascadia Traditiona is well informed in the issues of safety specific to gluten free food. In fact some of the staff are gluten intolerant and all are happy to answer your questions regarding their practices and ingredients.
Chris and Teresa at New Cascadia Traditional say,
“About a year ago a long time customer of ours asked me if I had tried a new gluten-free bread that was, at that time, new to the market. It was described as “whole grain” and really good. There had not yet been a gluten-free whole grain bread that was mass produced and broke free of the long held stereotype of being akin to a brick than to its wheat based cousin. So I sought out this bread at our local natural foods store. I read the front of the bread bag and there were the words “gluten free” and “whole grain.” Next I turned over the package and read the ingredients: Water, brown rice flour (not a bad start),tapioca starch, potato starch (things seemed to have quickly taken a turn in the less-than-whole-grain direction) then oil, sugar, then more refined starchiness. Somewhere down the line, I believe the eighth or ninth ingredient listed, was the other whole grain contained in the bread. After that were a number of ingredients that I had difficulty pronouncing. At this point it dawned on me just how different we do gluten-free at New Cascadia. Simple, honest, wholesome and always gluten-free.
This was about the same time that we introduced our Multigrain bread. What many consider to be our best bread, it is nearly 80% whole grain and without any refined ingredients or xanthan gum. Sure, we use starch and xanthan gum in many of our products. But we keep the refined stuff to a minimum. Even many of our pastries are mostly wholegrain and made with a short, understandable ingredients list. We take a simple, straight forward approach to baking: Comfort food for the gluten-free crowd that yearns for grandma’s old fashioned recipes of (pre gluten-free) days gone by.
We believe that our customers deserve the best, freshest baked goods available and we strive to make eating gluten-free an enjoyable experience. We use quality ingredients and even use vegetables, herbs and berries grown in the warmer months from our own organic garden beside the bakery. If you are ever in Southeast Portland, Oregon stop by for a cookie, pastry, pizza or loaf of bread. If you would like a slice of pie or want to order a cake, we will be happy to oblige. We’re sure you will appreciate the difference.”
