No Gluten, No Prob­lem with Ta­mara An­taki Traboulsi of Polygel For The Home­baker

Hav­ing kids and a full-time ca­reer at the same time is tough. Do­ing it right and hav­ing to man­age a gluten in­tol­er­ance is even tougher! To get an idea of how a su­per­woman like Ta­mara man­ages it all, we stopped by her hus­band’s of­fice, where Ryan, 8 years old and An­drew, 5 years old, were ready to help mom put the last minute sprin­kles on the cake. Be­sides rais­ing her two boys, Ta­mara works for her fam­ily owned com­pany Polygel, which sup­plies raw ma­te­ri­als for pas­try to the food ser­vice in­dus­try. A year and a half ago she launched Polygel for the Home­baker with her brother Jad and sis­ter in law Nathalie. “I re­cently started bak­ing healthy and tasty desserts with the in­gre­di­ents that we sell. Most of my recipes are gluten free be­cause of my hus­band’s in­tol­er­ance to wheat. If kids are in­volved in the kitchen, they'll be more likely to try new foods, es­pe­cially when they’re cov­ered in cho­co­late,” she said.
