Meet John Irvin, Engineer and Dedicated Gluten Free Bakery Owner

Arvada, COEngineers make things and develop solutions to problems, so it was no surprise that John Irvin, a mechanical engineer turned gluten-free baker, used his structured approach and extensive batch testing and ingenuity to per-fect the gluten-free vegan products his customers enjoy today.  The result? Gluten-free vegan breads, treats and other things that don’t fall apart when you eat them. 

During the years of 2008 to 2010, Irvin suddently developed serious health issues that included asthma, allergies to certain food products and gluten-intolerance.   Having always enjoyed cooking and baking, he was inclined to reduce his stress levels and tend to his health by leaving the corporate job scene and focusing on his mission to create “gluten-free bread that doesn’t taste like the cardboard box it came in”.   Gluten Free Things was born.   

Today, the premium gluten-free vegan products that Irvin’s busy dedicated bakery provides, has exploded in popularity because his products taste great and the texture and fragrance of the gluten-free vegan recipes remind customers of traditional gluten-based bread.  
Try his versatile, gluten-free vegan french loaf, or hoagie rolls, english muffins, pita bread, hamburger buns, hotdog buns, pizza crusts, bagels, croissants, graham crackers and crumbs, cookies, muffins, waffle and pancake mix, a variety of dough products.  Gluten Free Things is stocked with fresh baked bread daily, and also offers a host of other tasty gluten-free vegan goodness baked in this dedicated gluten free bakery located in Arvada, Colorado.
