About Mom's Place Gluten-Free
Our products - The majority of the products Mom’s Place Gluten Free offers on this website will be shipped to you in a form of a mix, whereas you simply add the wet ingredients – water, butter, oil, egg, etc. Mom’s Place does not prepare the items (i.e. breads, dinners, desserts, breakfasts, etc.) into the finished product, as that would require added preservatives & other harmful ingredients (antimicrobials, mold inhibitors, etc.). Those of us requiring or eating a gluten free diet will receive optimal nourishment & health benefits when the product is made fresh. It does require a bit of preparation & planning, but it’s worth it! Remember, the world’s way of “bigger” “faster” “cheaper” & the degradation of ingredients, likely contributed to your/our current food allergies. Eating fast foods, pre-made or processed foods heavily laden with preservatives or grabbing a quick meal from a drive-thru likely negatively contributed to your health issues as well. Mom’s Place is here to help improve the health of our customers by NOT pre-making foods, NOT adding preservatives and NOT sacrificing ingredient quality. Instead… you’ll go back to cooking… like “mom” did… healthy, wholesome & full of deeply satisfying flavors. The instructions for each product is listed on it’s package & all you do is follow as instructed! Then sit back & enjoy delicious gluten free foods, that taste delicious, wholesome, & nutritious foods—just as your body deserves! (Note: The only ready-to-eat items we offer are our licorice & other candy options, but still no preservatives!)
Jann is the owner and CEO of Mom's Place Gluten Free. She is also a mother of three amazing children, Alexsis, Cheyenne, and Justin. They are the best things that ever happened to her (before the grandchildren of course!). Her favorite hobby is spending time with her amazing grandchildren, Addisyn and Lincoln.
She was diagnosed with Celiac many, many years ago, back when there were hardly any gluten-free food options. Back then, everything tasted terrible. She wants to help people feel better and still be able to eat "normal" and healthy. Mom's Place helps return joy to the kitchen with healthy, great-tasting gluten free options. She strives to manage and direct the new product development, manufacturing and distribution arms of Mom's Place Gluten Free, while working with as many families as time allows to help other families avoid the many health issues that can arise from the consumption of gluten in today's society.
Jann has her Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, and she also teaches an Adult Living Series at the local college, teaching people everywhere how to "Eat Gluten Free & Love it!" We help people learn that eating gluten free can taste amazing, be easy and affordable!
