Food Matters: Austin food entrepreneurs are on a roll with new products; Kyle student wins FoodNetwork.com series

By Addie Broyles - American-Statesman Staff


Desiree Ficker is an Austin triathlete and marathoner who was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2005. Eliminating gluten from her diet was a critical step in improving her competition times, helping her win the 2011 Austin Marathon, and it inspired her to start Bounce Bakery, a online bakery specializing in all kinds of gluten-free (and vegan) breads, hamburger buns, cookies and muffins made with high-protein teff flour. Customers order the products online for delivery on Thursdays or Saturdays, and Ficker has added some wholesale clients, including Galaxy Cafe. You can find out more at bouncebakery.com.
