Mexican woman offers gluten-free, chemical-free bread and pastries to Canadians.


By Isabel Inclán. Correspondent.


Toronto, Aug 9 (Notimex) .- Mexican woman Rocío Bago has turned her pastry-making hobby into a healthy alternative business in Canada, providing gluten-allergic rich cakes with quinoa, almonds .


She assures that what she does is not make just bread but food, because she makes gluten-free flour baked goods without artificial or chemical sweeteners but using nutritious ingredients.


Among her products there are cakes, muffins, brownies, bread that she prepares and have less sugar than regular ones.


In an interview with Notimex (the News Agency of the Mexican State), she explained that these products are not only for people who suffers of Celiacs disease (allergic to gluten) or diabetics, but for anyone who likes bread and pastries, but who prefers to consume less sugar and more nutrients.


"A lot of people like bread but they're overweight, so these sugar-free breads are a good option," said Bago, who also teaches cake decorating.

 
Born in Gómez Palacio, Durango, Bago arrived to Canada more than 10 years ago. And when her husband got sick of multiple sclerosis and she had to prepare healthy breads is when she began.
"When you start creating these things you never finish," she said from her office where six months.


Bago, who grew up in Querétaro, has studied the properties of sugar and wheat, so she argued that the sugar that is usually consumed is saccharose synthesized artificially and does not contain the vitamins or minerals that the body needs.


"It is said that in developed countries we are overfed, but malnourished," she added.
In addition to the quinoa, she uses almonds, lentils, flaxseed, oats, brown rice and corn, among others. To sweeten the bread she incorporates sweet potatoes, bananas, pineapple, dates, nuts and raisins.


"This is an actual nutritious breakfast, because these breads contain antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fiber and tons or other nutrients, and sugar just from those ingredients, and some fruits," said this micro-entrepreneur, who now supplies private orders, but wants to reach department stores.


She added that in Canada there are products that say "gluten free" but contain a lot of sugar to compensate the lack of flavor."

 
"Flours are also sold in the supermarket to make muffins without gluten, but they come out very hard, not spongy at all," she said.


What she started out of love for her sick husband, she said, has now become a way of life and a motto, with the satisfaction of making a nutritious and healthy bread for everyone.


"My prices are reasonable and I hope to be able to continue placing my breads on a larger scale, always with the guarantee of elaborating them apart from cross contamination, that is why I must p prepare my products in kitchens where there is no gluten at all," said Bago.
