Native Sun Introduces Gluten Free Bakery

Native Sun Logo

MARCH 2010


We have a large segment of customers who shop at Native Sun because they must follow a special diet for their health and cannot find the products they need at a conventional grocery store. We have always given special diets special attention from the variety of products we stock to our unique color coded shelf tagging system that easily identifies gluten-free, casein-free, no peanut added and low sodium products. That is why we are so excited to announce the official opening of the Native Sun Gluten-Free Bakery!

While we have been using no-gluten added recipes in the Native Sun Bakery since April 2009, we now have trained staff, a dedicated area and quality control procedures in place to run a completely contained gluten-free bakery. In addition, bakery items are also periodically tested to assure product safety.

This effort was led by our Food Education Coordinator Ginny Nehring, whose son Brad is on a gluten-free diet for the treatment of Celiac Disease. Ginny has also authored a gluten-free cookbook called Brad’s Basics and offers free store tours for customers new to shopping for gluten-free, casein-free and other special diet needs.

Look for the items below in-store now & new recipes coming soon!

GF Oatmeal Creme Pies
GF Chocolate Chip Cake
GF Chocolate Brownies
GF Apple Cake
GF Carrot Cake
GF Pound Cake
GF Muffins And More

Individual items are sold by the Juice Bar and Deli at both locations. Large quantity orders or full cakes for birthdays, weddings or other special occasions are available by pre-order.

We hope our new Gluten-Free Bakery will allow children & adults with Celiac Disease and other GF special diets to enjoy cakes, desserts, muffins and other scrumptious goodies that they would otherwise have to pass on or make from scratch. We also want to assure our non gluten-free dieters that these treats are as delicious as any “regular” recipe. The proof is in the pound cake!


We are also excited to now offer all-natural meat and cheese from Thumann's and Andrew & Everret in a new Delicatessen section of our Baymeadows Deli. Products are available by the pound or sliced for fresh deli sandwiches.

Thumann's all-natural meats contains NO antibiotics, growth hormones, nitrates, nitrites, fillers, artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, or MSG. Their meat comes from livestock that are raised in stress free conditions and their products are low in salt, trans-fat free and safe for individuals with dairy and gluten allergies. In fact, Thumann's is the first deli company to be certified gluten-free!

Andrew & Everett cheeses are all-natural and made with rBGH-BST Hormone Free Pasteurized Milk. [rBGH is a harmful, synthetic, genetically-engineered version of a cow’s natural growth hormone that is injected into cows to increase milk production.]
