The Natural Product Expo focused on organic, gluten-free, vegan and non-GMO food and beverages. However, the event also included beauty and health products. The expo provided visitors the opportunity to see new products that are either coming to store shelves or have been recently released. People with celiac disease and gluten sensitivities were thrilled to discover new options ranging from baking mixes to pizza.

One of the gluten-free products featured at the Natural Product Expo was the Better4U gluten free sprouted ancient grains pizza with a thin crust. The pizza is non-GMO and includes a mix of quinoa, flax, chia and millet in the crust. The pizza is available at multiple supermarkets in four cheese, uncured pepperoni and Mediterranean flavors, and you can use the product locator on the official Better4U website to find it.

Baked goods and mixes without gluten were also popular at the expo, and Mikey’s Muffins offered paleo, gluten-free, soy-free, grain-free and dairy-free muffins. Available online and in stores, these muffins come in three flavors and taste better if they are toasted. If you prefer to make your own baked treats, the gluten-free baking mixes from Ardenne Farm let you experiment with sugar cookies or fudge brownies.

The Fremont Company displayed its gluten-free Totally Tomato ketchup made with stevia and gluten-free Martinez Salsa. Meanwhile, Grandpa's Kitchen showed off its gluten-free baking flour blend that is also dairy-free and non-GMO. If you miss eating flatbread pizza on a gluten-free diet, the American Flatbread company has a solution. The pizzas are made without gluten or GMO ingredients and come in pesto and cheese or cheese trio and tomato sauce flavors.
