Dandy Blend is made of the water-soluble extracts of five ingredients; three roots and two grains (barley and rye), not from the ingredients themselves.The ingredients are roasted separately and then combined in prescribed proportions, placed into a vat, covered with hot water, and allowed to steep for a prescribed period of time.The recipe may include more than my usual 10 ingredients by just a handful, but it only requires one bowl! I think the magic is in the beet puree and blend of gluten-free flours.
The average American consumes 55 pounds of wheat flour every year, making refined flour the #1 source of calories in the American Diet – a situation that nutrition expert Chris Kresser describes as, “a public health catastrophe.”Of course, this message comes to you from the same corporate interests and government health nannies who urged you to replace farm-fresh butter with heart stopping trans-fat (in the form of industrially-manufactured margarine). In fact, it enters the brain so easily that scientists are hopeful it can be used to deliver Alzheimer’s drugs. If all this bread bashing has caused you to reluctantly swear off buns, biscuits, bagels and baguettes forever, I understand.
For those with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity (two completely different conditions), even a small amount of gluten can cause serious digestive problems… But if you (or someone you know) has ever suffered from depression… After all, if whole-grain and most gluten-free breads are bad for you… It seems that people have the hardest time giving up bread.
After hearing so many doctor horror stories from you this past year, it’s painfully obvious we can’t solely depend on the medical community to accurately diagnose celiac disease.
So people turn to the internet looking for a solution.
The water, with the soluble portions of all the components, is separated from the grounds and spray dried.
The remaining fine brown powder left after the water is driven off is what becomes Dandy Blend.
As for the gluten free flours, I’ve found that gluten-free baking requires a mix of dry ingredients.
In this recipe, that included a blend of cocoa powder, almond meal, gluten-free oat flour, and a gluten-free flour blend.
Goosefoot Acres periodically submits samples of Dandy Blend to Elisa Technologies Laboratory in Florida, one of the most respected gluten testing labs in the United States, for analysis, and so far, every test has come back gluten-free. It meets the FDA standards for gluten-free, registering less than 5 parts per million for both gliadin and gluten, which is far below the limit of 20 parts per million allowed for gluten-free classification.
A few people have reported experiencing symptoms of gluten ingestion. Some people can eat certain foods and others cannot. It is for this reason that we offer free samples to U. residents so you can try it at no cost before investing in Dandy Blend.
The problem is that many of the medical websites fail when it comes to listing the symptoms of celiac disease.
