Flax4Life celebrates 22 years in the business as a family-owned and operated bakery that produces the best-tasting, nutritious, and flax-based gluten-free products on the market. The allergy-friendly bakery is Certified Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Dairy-Free, and Kosher. We produce delicious Brownies, Muffins, Granola, Cookies, and now a new No Sugar Added Chocolate Brownie that taste delicious but are also good for you. Flax is the main ingredient in every product, and with this comes a treat that is packed full of fiber, Omega 3's, and healthy protein. It helps the body out from the head to the toes with support of the mind, heart, bones, and, most importantly, the gut.
Their discussion to develop nutritious gluten-free baked goods came two decades ago when a family member became very ill. After two years of not getting any answers and seeing countless doctors and specialists, they finally discovered they were living with Celiac Disease. Shortly after, they found almost everyone in their family was either gluten-intolerant or had Celiac Disease. Flax4Life noticed the lack of safe and delicious baked goods available for those living with food allergies. As a family of bakers with five generations of baking and distributing baked goods, it became their mission to develop products with many health benefits that were also gluten-free, made with good ingredients, and, most importantly, tasted delicious.
