Meg Huebner 

Meg Huebner is an independent food scientist and researcher with a background in organic chemistry, nutrition, and food history, and has been living gluten-free since 2007. She started the blog Gluten-Free Boulangerie in 2010 to create and share GF breads delicious enough for everyone to enjoy. However, she soon began to wonder whether aiming to replicate wheat through the use of gums, highly-processed ingredients, eggs, and other common substitutes might actually be hindering, rather than helping, the quality of GF foods. On a more philosophical level, she also felt these ingredients were still standing in the way of truly “real bread.” 

Through continued research, Meg found that this “real bread” is indeed not only possible, but is also more delicious! She now develops whole-food-based recipes using techniques which bring out the natural structural and binding properties of GF ingredients. Some of these methods are new and experimental, while others are based on the diverse traditional uses of GF flours from around the world. She is currently working on a book which will explain the science of these ingredients and techniques in a way that is accessible to bakers from all backgrounds.
