Manna Dew is a specialty 100% gluten free bakery. Our goal is simple, but ambitious, can we offer highly textured gluten-free foods, particularly baked goods? Well that's a question worth looking into, and Manna Dew bakery is just that.
Our journey starts in a experimental kitchen in Hackney's London Fields area. A novice business owner without any professional baking or business experience. Four years later we managed to crack one of the greatest mysteries in gluten free baking, the creation of a real-textured gluten free croissant. We're still on that journey of experimentation, iteration and improvement, in the unwavering desire to create the best gluten free croissants out there.
From there our range has grown to include danish pastries filled with all the delicoiusness you might imagine. Belgian chocolate, Sicilian Pistachios, English Jams, French cheeses..
We've also created the incredible Vegan Croissant.
Alongside our incredible Gluten Free Viennoisserie range we offer gluten free breads, gluten free cakes and cupcakes, and gluten free cookies.
We're proud to bring you our range of wholesome gluten free goodies!
About Our Name
Manna is the honey of heaven, a blessed substance that descended on Moses (PBUH) on his pilgrimage from Egypt. It is a sweet honey-like substance that is filled with health, healing and wellbeing.
In Surat Al-Baqarah's 56th Verse in the Holy Quran, Allah says:
And We shaded you with clouds and sent down to you manna and quails, [saying], "Eat from the good things with which We have provided you." And they wronged Us not - but they were [only] wronging themselves.
Manna Dew's name is inspired by this verse in the Quran.
Everything we create is a healthy, delicious, and innovative. We use the finest and most nutritious ingredients, with every piece handmade to guarantee unmatched quality. We never stop experimenting and we are obsessed with mastering product textures. We primarily use organic flours when possible for all our goodies.
All our dairy milk is organic and all our eggs are organic free range. We use organic coconut palm sugar and organic agave nectar as our primary sweeteners (any products containing cane sugar are declared as such).
Our promise to our guests is they will not compromise on taste, experience or joy that comes naturally with the joy of eating.
Our range of products is extensive including breakfast gluten free pastries, gluten free croissants, gluten free cakes for celebrations, artisan gluten free breads, including gluten-free vegan breads, bake-at-home pancake mix and of course your favorite classic all-day delights.
