Unboxed: 10 new granolas, oils, gluten-free baking mixes and more

Unboxed, Edition 4 

This week in "Unboxed," we saw scores of goodies and baking blends not only safe for those with gluten sensitivities but also for people with allergies to ingredients including dairy, nuts and soy. 

Cooking oils also made an appearance: Cold pressing oils seems to be the standard that resonates with natural consumers, as the processing preserves flavor and nutrition. Oils featured impressive new packaging that improves their functionality (see slide four). 

In this gallery series, each week I unbox the piles of natural and organic products mailed to me and provide my honest, unbiased opinion. I also identify new and existing food trends each product exemplifies.
