Gluten-free

A gluten-free diet requires you to avoid wheat and some other grains, and choose substitutes that provide nutrients for a healthy diet. It excludes the protein gluten, found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye, and a cross between wheat and rye called triticale.

A gluten-free diet is essential for managing signs and symptoms of certain medical conditions, but some claims state that this diet may also improve health, weight loss and increased energy among people without gluten-related medical conditions.

Vegan

Veganism has become very popular. Increasingly more people have decided to go vegan for ethical, environmental or health reasons. Vegan diets exclude meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy products,  and foods that contain these product. Vegans remove any and all animal byproducts, or foods that involve animals in their processing mechanisms and replace them with veggies, fruits, beans, nuts, and grains.

There’s lots of anecdotal and scientific evidence on the life-changing benefits of vegan diets, research shows that a varied, healthy vegan diet can play a significant role in improving overall health. Aside from the nutritional benefits, many find a sense of gratification on a moral level, as there is a compassion element to going vegan, while also reducing your carbon footprint.

Kosher

Kosher guidelines strictly prohibit the pairing of any meat and dairy product. This also means that all utensils and equipment used to prepare meat and dairy must always be kept separate.

Edge of The Woods Market carries the Kosher certification so you can feel comfortable shopping with us.
