How to Store Gluten-Free Baked Goods?
Once you get your hands on your coveted gluten-free baked goods, you need to store them properly so that you can enjoy them for as long as possible. Here’s what you need to know about storing gluten-free baked goods from Bougie Bakes:
What Are Gluten-Free Baked Goods?
Flour is a key ingredient in most baked goods. However, gluten-free baked goods are made without any grains using gluten-free alternatives like almond flour, chickpea flour, coconut flour, and rice flour. These gluten-free alternatives give your baked goods the same taste you love but with none of the gluten.
What Makes Gluten-Free Baked Goods Better?
So what makes gluten-free baked goods better than the gluten alternatives? Here’s what you need to know:
Gluten-Free Is Better for Your Gut
For starters, gluten-free is better for your gut. You don’t need to have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity to be negatively affected by gluten — anyone can experience unpleasant digestive side effects from gluten, like abdominal pain, bloating, cramping, and more. So by going gluten-free, you’re doing your gut a big favor.
Gluten-Free Is Better for Weight Loss
Additionally, gluten-free products tend to be better for weight loss since they are less processed and more natural. For example, Bougie Bakes’ gluten-free baked goods include almond flour, which contains fewer carbs and more nutrients compared to regular flour. Additionally, Bougie Bakes’ gluten-free baked goods cut out preservatives that can make it harder for you to lose weight.
Gluten-Free is Better for Your Overall Health
Last but certainly not least, gluten-free is better for your overall health. Just a few additional health benefits include increased energy, reduced inflammation, improved bone health, and better moods. Based on these benefits, trying out a gluten-free diet — if even for a short period of time — seems like a no-brainer!
Where to Get Gluten-Free Baked Goods?
Even though gluten-free baked goods are clearly better for you, they’re still not the default option — which can make them difficult to find in your typical grocery store. So where can you find gluten-free baked goods? The best place to look in terms of quality, variety, and pricing is online.
But how can you choose between the different online companies that offer gluten-free baked goods? It all comes down to the ingredients and process.

But how are you supposed to store gluten-free baked goods? Do you need to refrigerate gluten-free baked cookies? Can you freeze gluten-free baked goods?
It really depends on the other ingredients! A lot of baked goods are made with a lot of preservatives so that they can last on the shelf or in your pantry for an extended period of time.
