Udi’s is raising awareness of the amazing range of Udi’s gluten free products available to Canadians.
A recent study actually estimated that approximately 4.3 million Canadians have gone gluten free or have reduced gluten in their diets.
That’s a pretty staggering number!
With so many consumers adopting the gluten free lifestyle, Udi’s is hosting a “Fall Comfort” food challenge to gluten free bloggers like me and my readers.
I’m hoping my recipe for gluten free stuffing gets posted on Udi’s facebook page.
Udi’s encouraged me to make a gluten free recipe with anyone of the baked goods they had sent to me.
With Thanksgiving in Canada here I decided to make gluten free stuffing.
