Phoenix-based Gluten-Free Creations Bakery has signed an agreement with Sunrise at River Road, a Tucson assisted living facility, to provide gluten-free (GF) and dairy-free baked goods exclusively to residents.

Sunrise at River Road is the first assisted living community in Tucson to offer the bakery’s products to all residents as part of a healthy eating effort. Breads are freshly baked, packed, and shipped and can be frozen for future use.  Dairy-free and GF loaf bread varieties include almond flax, seeded multigrain, and mock rye.

Gluten-Free Creations Bakery has two retail outlets—one in Phoenix and one in Scottsdale—and offers its products by mail order. For more information, go to the website.






  1. Wonderful! The phoenix GF bakeries are terrific and we’ve been ordering stuff by mail for a good long time. (The GF and other “trick breads” from both Sunrise and Trader Joe were too often not fresh and/or spoiled quickly, we found.) So now folks, let’s support both Sunrise and Creations in this effort!
