our Special journey
Based in Listowel
Carefully balanced foods
Wellness Baking Listowel is an artisan bakery and all the products are handmade using the highest quality ingredients. None of the products in the Wellness Baking Listowel range contain any preservatives or additives, we don’t believe in unnecessary ingredients.
Our Brown Soda Bread, which is Wellness Baking Listowel’s best seller, is made from very few ingredients, there is no soya, no eggs and is made with the finest certified gluten free oats* and fresh buttermilk.
Aiming for the top
Wellness Baking Listowel was awarded a Great Taste Gold Award in 2012 for our Gluten and Wheat Free Gingerbread Biscuits. Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink. It has been described as the “Oscars” of the food world.
Wellness Baking Listowel was the Winner of the Best Emerging Artisan Food Product in 2012 in the Baking and Baked Foods Category this was in association with Kerry Enterprise Board.
How it all began
The business has gone from strength to strength over the past five years and Ildiko now employs nine workers and the business is now based at Listowel Enterprise Centre. There is a strong family connection with three generations of the family involved – Ildiko’s aunt, cousin and two daughters all play a vital part in the business.
Developing the business
Ilidko has participated in SuperValu’s Food Academy Programme, in conjunction with Bord Bia and the Local Enterprise Office Network.
The Food Academy works with and nurtures small businesses through their journey from start up to getting their products onto SuperValu’s shelves and this has seen Wellness Baking Listowel refine and grow at every level of the business.
What is Gluten free?
Only foods containing 20ppm (20mg/kg) of gluten or less can be labelled ‘gluten free’. Even naturally gluten free products may contain small amount of gluten. 20ppm is an amount of gluten which has been proved by research not to be toxic to people with Coeliac disease.
Gluten free oats are milled in facilities that do not handle wheat, barley or rye to avoid contamination with gluten. Research has shown that most people with coeliac can safely eat high purity gluten free oats, although there are a very small number of people with coeliac disease who may still be sensitive to gluten-free, uncontaminated oat products.
It’s up to you to decide whether to try gluten-free oats in your diet, but those that do find that they add variety to the gluten free regime and oats are an excellent source of soluble fibre, which helps to promote a healthy gut in harmony with the natural gut bacteria and can help to treat high cholesterol and maintain lower blood sugars.
