Like lactose, many people are becoming more and more intolerant to gluten. For some, it's sensitivity, while for others, it's a life-altering allergy that prohibits them from eating some of life's most decadent delights.


Thankfully, more and more bakeries and pastry shops are offering gluten-free alternatives, and some run an entirely gluten-free operation!


Here are some gluten-free businesses in the area that you can grab your next treat from.

Susie Sans Gluten


From doughnuts to cupcakes, to artisanal bread, to pizza crust and bagels, it's safe to say Susie Sans Gluten is your one-stop-shop. If you don't happen to be close to Laval where their shop is located, keep your eyes out for their many products in grocery stores and specialty shops near you.
