One day in 2001, while out riding her bike in Boulder, Colorado, Trish Kurnik was hit by a car, which changed her life in an unexpected way. After her external injuries healed, Trish was left with secondary and permanent physical damage: the onset of celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that can be triggered by trauma.
From that point on, she’d have to follow a totally gluten-free diet. To say this was challenging for a lover of natural, local, and organic whole foods is putting it mildly. One of Trish’s favorite foods is crackers. Most gluten-free crackers are made with highly processed alternative flours, starches, gums, and fillers. They not only fell short in terms of flavor and texture, but they were also full of empty calories and high-glycemic carbs. In other words, neither delicious nor nutritious.
Fortunately, this story has a happy ending. A life-long baker, Trish decided that if she couldn’t find a cracker she loved, she’d make one herself. Armed with steely determination and a well-equipped kitchen, she went to work...
And New Beat Foods was born!
