A hereditary condition linked to gluten intolerance, celiac disease is now recognized as one of the most common chronic diseases in the world. In North America, it is estimated that one in every 100 individuals suffers from it, and almost 70% of those who suffer from an intolerance to gluten are women.
"At boulangerie st-méthode, we believe that having an intolerance to gluten doesn’t mean you should have to compromise on freshness."
Gluten free freshness
Boulangerie St-Méthode presents an innovative way to bring delicious, fresh loaf to people suffering from an intolerance to gluten.
Unlike frozen gluten-free loaves available on the market, St-Méthode’s gluten-free loaf is offered in an exclusive packaging that’s unique on the market. It allows the loaf to keep its taste longer and to stay fresh 28 days without being stored in the freezer.
Health and authenticity
Driven by our desire to promote health and wellbeing, we pride ourselves on offering a vast range of wholesome products so that everyone can enjoy fresh, authentic-tasting loaf.
In order to avoid any risk of contamination, our gluten-free loaf is made in St-Méthode in a separate factory that is dedicated exclusively to the production of gluten-free products.
Freshness and taste
St-Méthode’s gluten-free loaf is offered in a 400 g format, in white loaf and multigrain.
Just like fresh fruit and vegetables taste better than their frozen counterparts, our fresh gluten-free loaf doesn’t lose any of its taste because it doesn’t go through the freezing or deep-freezing process. Dare to compare!
St-Méthode's new fresh gluten-free loaf... A taste you can savour every day!
“In order to address the needs of people suffering from an intolerance or a hypersensitivity to gluten, Boulangerie St-Méthode is proposing a new range of gluten-free loaves. True to its values, St-Méthode truly takes the health of Quebecers to heart!” – Isabelle Huot, PhD in nutrition

Canadian celiac association
The Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP) was developed so consumers can shop with confidence by selecting those safe, reliable and gluten-free products displaying the GFCP trademark and is endorsed by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness and the Canadian Celiac Association.
The GFCP is a voluntary certification program designed to help brand owners to differentiate their gluten-free products from the increasing clutter of gluten-free claims, by displaying the GFCP endorsed trademark. The GFCP is also based on a robust third-party audit certification process at the manufacturing facility, which verifies their ability to regularly meet the stringent GFCP requirements, when managing gluten as part of their food safety programs.

The St-Méthode Bakery is proud to support diabetes awareness programs in Canada with its line of No Fat No Sugar Added breads.
