"Gluten Free. We offer vegan options. Dairy Free." These are all labels and signs that have become more visible in mainstream supermarkets and restaurants in the past few years. Food allergies and dietary restrictions have impacted the lives of millions of foodies and sweet lovers alike, which is leading to a growing demand for more allergy & diet friendly product options.
This growing trend for more options provides a great opportunity for those of us in the baking and sweets industry to stay ahead of the curve. Adding dietary friendly options to your menu will prove to help increase revenue in your sweets business in the upcoming years. Therefore, you should make sure that you are offering something for everyone regardless of their limitations.
In this class, you will learn the top health conscious groups and how you can prepare baked goods for them based on their dietary needs. We will go over common mistakes made when baking and simple ways to market your new sweet treats & menu items to the health inspired buyer.
