Why a Sugar-Free Gluten-Free Bakery?

Britt's sister was diagnosed with celiac disease which is an autoimmune disorder where the person cannot ingest gluten without affecting their intestines. So Britt started testing out recipes that were grain and sugar-free. According to Saratoga.com, Britt said:

I decided to go gluten-free because it’s (celiac disease) hereditary. Then I read the benefits of avoiding grains and sugar in general, and I just took that step forward with my own life. Back then there were no substitutes. I was only eating eggs, meat, leafy greens, and nuts, and then I realized I could put things together to make things that I was missing.

Where Did She Learn to Bake?

Britt says she learned everything from her mom who was well known for her baking skills and delicious goodies. She was known as the Swedish Chef amongst her family. Britt used some classic recipes and tweaked them to get the right flavors and textures. She said her mom had some unhealthy habits that contributed to her passing in 2018. The bakery honors her mom in both the name and making baking more healthy.

How are these Delicious Baked Goods Made?

The Sweetish Chef isn't just gluten-free, they don't use any grain at all. All of the baked goods are made with coconut or almond flour and sweetened with monk fruit and fermented sugar that's called erythritol.
