I ordered the Manhattan Blend and the Sydney Blend and started experimenting with recipes even doing side by side comparisons with our current gluten free flour. I was blown away by the results. The GF challah, which we used Orly’s recipe, came out amazing. Mouth feel, taste, texture - delicious! Then we moved on to quick breads, muffins and cakes. Same amazing results. Additionally, not only were the products that we made with Blends By Orly delicious, they were significantly better than the other brand of GF flour that we were previously using and which we up until that point thought were fine. We will continue to use Blends By Orly exclusively for all of our GF baking.
I have a wonderful son named Kian who is allergic to a whole bunch. His allergies cause a difficulty in him eating a lot of the foods as myself, his family and his friends at daycare. I picked up a bag of your pancake and waffle mix at shoprite and decided I was going to try and make it for him. I changed the add milk — to adding his dairy free formula but kept everything the same. My son just got to eat pancakes for the first time, and he did not have a reaction. He is OH SO happy!! Thank you guys so much, I am so happy I found your company and will be buying again and again.
Blends by Orly Flour is the BEST flour blends brand that I’ve tried, since having to go Gluten Free. What I really love about it, is that they are each blended differently, depending on what you want to make, unlike some other GF flours that advertise that they are an all in one. I’ve had bad results with all purpose brands, resulting in poor taste and bad texture. In addition to being a great tasting and easy to work with flour, their customer service is awesome!!! I’ve contacted them with questions, and they are extremely prompt and helpful. If you are gluten free, and love to bake or cook, I truly believe that these flours will become a staple in your home. Try it!!! You won’t be disappointed!
I heard about your fantastic products through a doctor chat room. As we treat many autistic children, I am always looking for gluten and casein free options for these children.
I just wanted to thank you for making my son’s birthday perfect! We have a tradition of having “waffle sundaes for breakfast and this year I used the Sydney Blend and I would put them any day against traditional waffles. Delicious!
My 10 year old granddaughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes 3 years ago and a year ago with celiac disease. I worked hard to make her special treats for special occasions. She had always loved my pies, but we were very disappointed with the results with the different gluten free flours I tried. That is until I found your Sydney Blend. I now am able to make her perfect pies! Making my granddaughter happy is so important to me! Thank you for coming up with your blends.
I am an Allergy Chef at a sleep away camp and I took your gluten free blends to camp there with your delicious recipes that are on your website. I baked muffins, cookies, cakes and cupcakes and everything I made was delicious, The kids always wanted seconds and sometimes thirds but of course by then they were all finished.
We are very happy with your Tuscany Blend Flour as it is easy to work with and results in a high quality end product. The students love all the gluten free creations we’ve made thanks to your blend. Keep up the good work. Thank you!
I love baking with them! I have two daughters with celiac and this is the first gluten free roll they absolutely love! Even with nothing on it! And the added bonus that they wash on shabbos for the meal makes it the best! I have told everyone I know with celiac about it. It’s really a great product!
Just wanted to thank you for these challah mixes, it was fabulous & an absolute treat! Best of all my body is very happy with your ingredients, as I usually react quite badly to other gf breads. Hugely enjoyed by the whole family!
What a blessing Orly has created for the home baker. Many of us who have become gluten intolerant (I am wheat intolerant - so no yeast either!) had to give up our traditional family recipes and sit on the sidelines while our families devour our home baked goodies. Not any more. With Orly, I can make the family’s traditional birthday cake, the gravies, the pies, the cookies, the muffins, the quick breads, the pancakes, and the casseroles again and enjoy them. The flour blends allow for gluten free baking that MAINTAINS the original recipe taste without the gluten free flour aftertaste or texture.
Trying to switch to gluten free baking has been a challenge even though I am an experienced cook. However, this flour blend and the recipe on back was the answer to my difficulties. I carefully followed the Choc Chip Pecan recipe on the package and the results were amazing. Even my grandchildren who are not sensitive to wheat couldn’t tell the difference from these cookies and wheat flour choc chip cookies.
Since my son is allergic to soy, I made the pizza dough using the Manhattan blend and my son actually loved it!!! It was such a relief when he ate it and didn’t complain that it was too crusty or too hard!!! Thanks again for all your help, your products are life changing!!!
I’m an allergy chef in the summer and that’s when I fell in love with Blends by orly. I made muffins, cookies and cakes and all the gluten free kids as well as the other kids without any allergies loved everything I made. My husband who would come to visit especially loved the Gluten Free Banana Mocha Muffins that I made with the Orly Sydney Blend. When I came home from camp, I switched over to regular flour and he didn’t like it half as much. So here I am making these delicious muffins for my husband who is not gluten free.
Incredible. I have been a devoted king Arthur fan for years, but this new brand on the scene has changed my baking entirely. I make gf bread now and it reminds me of the bread I had as a kid when I still had gluten. Its soft and has great texture, great crumb. Doesn’t taste like xanthum gum or anything else bitter or off like you get with a lot of gf flour blends.
After a 2 year struggle, I am now healthy enough to start trying to make and create beautiful treats with you blends. So far, I have made some delicious bread and actually sell it at our local farmers market!
I just wanted to say that your Blends are amazing and they are giving me some serious hope that I will still be able to bake things that I will be able to eat and also share with my friends without them having to humor me and say it tastes good when it really tastes like cardboard. It also gives me hope that the baking challenges that I’ve wanted to tackle for a while (croquembouche, croissants, a cake that tastes better then a box mix, etc), but haven’t had time to may still be possible in a gluten free version. Keep up the great work!
I recently had the opportunity to try your product and fell in LOVE. It is so nice to finally find a GF flour that actually works and doesn’t overpower the flavor of the item I am baking or cooking.
I had a friend come stay for the weekend last week and she has Celiac. I surprised her with a pancake breakfast that I made with the Sydney Blend. She literally cried while she ate them! She hadn’t had pancakes in many years and had basically thought it was something she would never be able to enjoy again. She said that these were better than she remembered wheat based pancakes being.
This flour blend is amazing! I have tried to make deep dish GF pizza and could not get it quite right. This flour blend is perfect! The London blend also made the best GF cookies. I have told everyone I know that is GF about your flour blends. Thank you!
I just want you to know that I made this Challah this past Friday night because my granddaughter was just diagnosed as being gluten intolerant. I invited other guests, one of whom was also Gluten intolerant. I was going to make this Challah for them and regular challah for the other guests but it came out of the oven smelling and looking so good that I decided just to use your challah. I was nervous because I had no idea how it would taste, it was TERRIFIC! Thanks.
I’m a young woman, married less than two years, and my husband has celiac. I was pleased to find your challah mix in the local grocery store, and was excited to try it out, hoping that it wouldn’t turn out to be a case of “too good to be true”! Well, that was six weeks ago, and I’ve been baking challah with your flour every week since. I must take the time to contact you to express my sincere gratitude for this amazing flour blend. The challah tastes terrific; my husband would never go back to the gluten free challahs that we used to buy in the local bakeries. I braid the dough with six strands, as per our tradition, and it comes out looking so fantastic that people are shocked that it is gluten free! Thank you ever so much. Your flour has transformed our Shabbat. May God give you the strength to continue helping others with your baking!
Great product. Bread flavor is good but most importantly the texture is perfect.
I’m so happy I could cry!!! I finally feel I can bake again! I love baking and I worked so hard to find GF flour and this is it. I used Tuscan and Manhattan blend and I just love both. I made bagels and my husband did not even notice the difference!
