You want, no, NEED to be able to trust the ingredients when you are searching for gluten free foods. I always look for the Made in USA label when buying something I'm going to eat, but especially if I need to be able to count on the quality and integrity of the manufacturing process. I recently went hunting for American made gluten free goodies and here is what I found:
Circle B Ranch is bringing you two truly special gluten-free products – their new Nitrite Free Bacon Snack Sticks and their award-winning Top Tomato Bloody Mary Mix. (The Bloody Mary Mix was just awarded the 2018 Platinum SIP Awards which is the only bling tasting competition that enlists consumers as judges.) In the spirt of honoring American made products and those carrying out the American dream, we had to showcase Circle B Ranch, its owners, and its products.
Circle B Ranch, located in Seymour, Missouri, was started in 2009 by Marina and John Backes. The couple relocated from Branchburg, New Jersey to the lush rolling hills of the Ozark countryside in southwest Missouri. They were looking for the perfect weather for raising Heritage Berkshire/Kurabota hogs. This clean and natural environment allows the hogs to graze freely on the lush pastures and roam the woods foraging for nuts and acorns, while also allowing them to be free from any additional hormones and antibiotics from their fed. Marina and John raise the hogs using sustainable and humane production methods that adhere to the Certified Humane Raised and Handled and Animal Welfare Approved standards of operation.
Circle B Ranch brings you its newest product including its Nitrite Free Bacon Snack Stick, Nitrite Free Jalapeño Bacon Snack Stick, and Big John’s Hawaiian Pork Snack Sticks. They are super flavorful and the most moist and tender jerky sticks I've eaten, which I appreciate.These sticks contain no high fructose corn syrup, red dye, nitrates, or sodium benzoate. Circle B Ranch uses only the good stuff to go into these delicious Bacon Snack Sticks! They have 5g of protein, 90 calories, 170 mg sodium and no carbs or sugar making them a great source of healthy fats perfect for the Keto diet. There are no add any hormones or use antibiotics, and they are 100% American made, from Missouri.
Handmade in small batches, Circle B Ranch Top Tomato Bloody Mary Mix is made with the highest quality ingredients that will please the most discerning of Bloody Mary aficionados. Ahh; it's so flavorful I could drink it everyday! Chock full of bits of real garden tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil, chopped onion, vinegar, spices and garlic, among other clean ingredients, the mix is good enough to be a stand alone beverage simply poured over ice with a squeeze of lemon. The ingredient list is simple while also being gluten- and wheat free with no MSG, preservatives, or high fructose corn syrup! This mix is thick so don't forget to shake before you pour.

Based on fresh-cut vegetables, versatile sauces, and ready-to-eat breakfasts and snacks, Hungry Root offers over 75 dishes that customers can make at home. We can see why the Sweet Potato Pad Thai, made with sweet potato noodles, spicy peanut sauce, and snap peas is a fan-favorite. It's certainly something we love.
, all natural Filipino food, is made using third-generation Filipino-American family recipes. My favorite is the Tangy Chicken Chicken and Rice, known as adobo. The entree has a long history as the national dish of the Philippines. The adobo cooking style shares influences with Morocco, yet Kusina's interpretation is uniquely Filipino. The vinegar, married with mild spices, like turmeric and black pepper, make for a uniquely flavored chicken dish.

I can count the number of times I've purchased frozen meals on one hand, so Tandoor Chef meals aren't something I'd typically think to buy, but I cannot begin to tell you how delighted I was to try Tandoor Chef.
