Hello! My name is Brynn Sorenson. I’m new around here and excited to partner with Heartland Gourmet to represent the Gluten Free Mama brand.
The Gluten Free Mama brand was started by Rachel Carlyle Edington when her daughter was diagnosed with gluten intolerance. Like a true mama bear Rachel attacked the challenge and created an array of gluten free mixes and flours. The Gluten Free Mama brand was born. Rachel is now focused on a new journey as she passes the baton in order to focus on her health and family. Heartland Gourmet, based out of Lincoln, NE, bought Gluten Free Mama in 2015. We are proud to be producing the same high quality products that Rachel originally gave you. We also produce a complete line of gluten free mixes under our Heartland Gourmet label. Between the two brands, we are here to help you on your journey so you can bake gluten free with ease and peace of mind.
My journey like Rachel’s started in a doctor’s office with my child. In 2005 my oldest child was diagnosed with multiple food allergies at 2 weeks old. I became a gluten free mama when he was diagnosed in 2008 with gluten intolerance. In 2009 I was handed my own diagnosis. Three years later my daughter showcased the celiac rash (dermatitis herpetiformis) after she ate a gluten full Thanksgiving dinner made for guests. Upon seeing her rash our pediatric gastroenterologist confirmed her diagnosis that weekend.
When this journey began over 12 years ago the road was overwhelming, confusing, lonely, and hard. Over the years through trial, error, and persistence our family’s hit a groove. We still have bumps in the road but overall we’ve achieved a smooth ride. A ride I couldn’t have achieved without the help of the internet and other’s willingness to share.
I’m excited to share the lessons that I’ve learned over the last 10+ years as a gluten free mama. You can expect new blog posts with helpful allergy/gluten free lifestyle tips, new recipes and my commitment to provide a gluten free community where we can come together to support each other to make the road a little bit smoother for all of us.
I’m excited to start this new adventure and can’t wait to get to know all of you!
