Vancouver is hosting a Gluten Free Expo on January 13th that will include products, education, demonstrations, and plenty of samples. Browse the offerings of over 100 vendors and exhibitors while Registered Dieticians take to the main stage to talk about living gluten free.
Where: Vancouver Convention Centre East (Canada Place)
When: Sunday, January 13, 2013 from 10:00am to 5:00pm
Tickets: Available online for $9 or at the door on the day of the event for $12. All prices include HST and service fees. The first 2000 attendees also receive a re-usable shopping bag.
Exhibitors and sponsors include (but are not limited to) Canadian Celiac Association Vancouver Chapter, Choices Markets, BC SPCA, Delight Gluten Free Magazine, Five Hole for Food, Edible Canada, Nature’s Path Foods, Noodlebox, Wendel’s True Foods, and a large number of bakeries like Cloud 9 Specialty Bakery, The Sweet Tooth Cakery, PatsyPie Gluten-Free Bakery, Bakery on Main, and Lemonade Gluten Free Bakery.
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and triticale. Removing gluten from your diet means excluding foods that contain these ingredients. It’s no wonder that so many bakeries signed on as exhibitors – proving that you can be gluten free and still enjoy breads, sweets, and treats.
