  1. Hello! Just brought Maple Butter tarts for our small Whole Foods grocery store and my question is, are they shelf stable and if so how long? Cheers

    • Thank you for your message. Yes, our butter tarts are shelf stable for up to 5 days.



  2. Hi! I’m confused. I see the different pastas offered but comments are about the pasta meals. Are there full meals to buy prepared? Coming to Bracebridge soon and would pick some up if available.

    • Hi Faye,

      Thank you for your message. We used to have a shoppe called The Pasta Shoppe by Beat the Wheat located in downtown Bracebridge. We have since closed our shop in January 2021 to focus on the production of our baked goods to supply grocery stores across Canada. We do however have a pop-up shoppe located in the Muskoka Natural Food Market at 229 Mantitoba St. in Bracebridge where you will find our lasagnas, breads and baked goods.


  3. What are your ingredients?
    I’m celiac, no dairy, corn, and lot of other things.
    Thank you for sharing.

    • Hi Jane,
      Thank you for your inquiry. All of our products are gluten-free. As for the other ingredients, the easiest way would be for you to click on an item you are interested in, it will direct you to the items page where you can find the ingredients and Nutritional Facts Table in the pictures below.

      Kind regards,


    • Hi. Bought a frozen apple pie. What temp and for how long? No instructions and we really don’t want to ruin it. Thanks!

      • Hi Kiki,

        Thank you for your message. The pie is already fully cooked. However, if you would like to re-heat the pie you can cook it at 350F for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.


  4. We LOVE your treats!
    Discovered the butter tarts in Sobeys initially (what a find!!), but they were sold out the next three visits.
    How happy was I to discover I can order directly from you!

    Best GF items I have come across!

    • Hi Jackie,
      We are so happy to hear you found our butter tarts at your local Sobeys store. If you could please let me know which store you found them and were sold out at, that way our sales team can reach out to them to place a re-order. Yes, you can purchase our butter tarts through our online store and we ship all across Ontario!
      Hopefully, next time you go into your local grocery store, they will be stocked up on Beat the Wheat Butter Tarts 😉

      • Oh certainly!
        It is the Sobeys on Terry Fox Drive in Kanata (Ottawa) – hit or miss – went in two weeks ago and the freezer chest was full….went in last week and not a tart to be seen.
        Love love love those tarts!

        • Hi Jackie,
          Thank you for your message. We love hearing from our customers! I will have our sales team contact this store to make sure they are restocked on a regular basis!:)


  5. Just having the Muskoka Maple butter tarts. Very good. Will definitely buy other products here at Sobeys in Tillsonburg or order online.

    • Hi Anette,
      Thank you for your review! We are glad to hear you found our Butter Tarts in your local Sobeys store!

      • Hi I’m wondering if there are stores in Peterborough whom sell your products?
        Thanks very much

  6. BEST gluten free pastry I have ever tasted in over 11 years

    • Thank you Angela! 🙂

      • Hi. Do you have any retail store in Nova Scotia selling your products ?
        Thank you

        • Hi Jack,

          Thank you for your message. We have just gone national with our brand and will be available in stores across Canada. Whereabouts in Nova Scotia are you from?

  7. Hi Stephanie,

    Still buying your goodies through the Natural Food Market….thank you for making it still available for casual shopping.

    I was wondering if you have considered making gluten free tea biscuits….with cranberries or raisins?

    • Hi Trudy,
      Thank you for your support! At this point, we are focusing on wholesale to grocery stores across Ontario. Maybe one day we can work on a recipe. 🙂

  8. Your butter tarts are FRICKEN AMAZING!! Butter tarts are my absolute favourite treat and I have not had one in 15 years since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease. These were everything a butter tart should be – flaky, buttery, crispy crust and an ooey gooey filling that has a nice chewy top. My whole family loved them. I shared very grudgingly. (Next time will get a pack just for me. ) Thank you so much for creating such a terrific product. I bought them at a sweet little grocery store in Kingston called Daughters and will pick up a box anytime they are in stock!


    • Thank you Jennifer for your kind message! We truely appreciate hearing from our customers. Glad to hear your family also enjoyed them. 🙂

    • Where can I buy your products in Waterloo Ontario?

  9. We have been going to The Pasta Shoppe in Bracebridge 10 years ago. All of their food is delicious and loaded with flavour. CONGRATULATIONS on Sobeys wisely picking up your items.
    We try to not leave the area until storing up on Adam’s incredible Pasta and Stephanie’s mouth watering sauces.
    These 2 are hard working ,quality Entrepreneurs who have earned SUCCESS.
    Their tarts are sooooooo good.
    Join me in supporting them.

    • I live near Cornwall, Ontario and with COVID we are limited to gluten free products. I search and found beatthewheat website. This is my third order since January 2021 and cannot believe everything is sooooooo good and deliciouuuus. The tarts are so mouth watering and the crust doesn’t brake apart. So happy cannot stop complimenting and encouraging everyone to support them.

      • Hi Gerry,

        Thank you for your kind review! We are so happy you found us online. We always appreciate hearing from our customers near and far. 🙂

  10. Drove over 200 KM for Fresh Pasta and Baked Goods. Best ever, best service, best Quality !!

  11. Hi. I purchased your gluten free butter tarts through Sobeys in St. Catharines. I haven’t had a decent butter tart in many years. All I can say is, “Thank you!!” They are so creamy and delicious and the shell held its form and didn’t fall apart on the first bite. My Goodness, so Yummy!!
    I look forward to trying some of your other products.
    Thank you again for making gluten free taste ‘normal’.

    • Totally agree with you Audrey. I’m hooked on those tarts. Been Celiac for 2 1/2 years now. They are the Best !

  12. Went up to Muskoka on deliveries with my business and had my 96-year-old mom with me as currently during Covid my sister and I take weekly turns having her with us for a week’s time. She has difficulty chewing highly textured foods and you were so accommodating…offered to cook the pasta a bit more. I ordered the eggplant as well as the pasta with tomato sauce. Very surprised and impressed when the food containers were not plastic! Our food quite tasty and pasta sauce definitely tasted home-made. Overall a great experience. Thank you!

  13. This was the most delicious pasta meal I have ever had, I would not have known the whole meal was gluten-free! The butter tarts are to die for!
    The bread is nothing short of amazing. Finally, a gluten free bread that is so delicious and affordable! My 4 year search for a GF bread is over and I will certainly tell my friends and family that these delicious products actually do exist! Thank you so much!

    • Thanks Nancy for your great review! We are happy to hear you found us!

  14. Best brownie I have ever had!!!

    • Thanks for your review! We are happy you enjoy our brownies as much as we do!

  15. I have been to the Pasta Shoppe each time I come up to Bracebridge and I can’t say enough of the products & service I have received. The pasta is the best that I’ve tasted, and I recently had the chicken parmesian & cheese bagels and couldn’t believe how superb & fresh everything is. I have been celiac for 9 years and have visited a few gluten free bakeries but this one tops the list to go to. If you are in Bracebridge, you would be pleasantly gifted with their food & service.

    • Hi Ann,
      We are so happy that you enjoy your experiences at The Pasta Shoppe by Beat the Wheat. We love hearing from our customers and always welcome your feedback. See you again soon!

      • Hello, I have just purchased your Muskoka Maple Coconut Butter Tarts. While the filling is good the pastry seems under cooked and not at all browned as the other butter tarts featured on your website.

        • Hi Lyne,
          Thank you for your message. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with the texture of your butter tarts. Sometimes, depending on where the tarts are positioned on the tray and in the oven, some get cooked/browned more than others. I will email you a promo code for a free package of coconut butter tarts on your next online purchase. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.

          All the best,


        • Hi Lyne,
          Thank you for your message. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed in the texture of your coconut butter tarts. Sometimes, the tarts brown more than others depending on where they are situated on the tray and in the oven. I will send you a promo code for a free package of coconut butter tarts on your next online purchase. Again, our sincere apologies.

          All the best,


  16. Picked up some of your fabulous pumpkin tarts as well as maple tarts for Thanksgiving. They were fabulous!!! Well worth the drive from Peterborough. Thanks for making my weekend that much sweeter!

  17. First time in the shop and the staff was friendly and knowledgable. The freshly baked bread is amazing and we’re not going to fit in our bathing suits for the weekend.

  18. Best gluten free pasta ever. I’ve been gluten free for 12 years and this is the tastiest gluten free pasta anywhere. It is good enough to eat on its own, naked, unsauced, alone on the plate with just olive oil and a bit of salt. Wow.

  19. We stumbled across the Pasta Shoppe randomly when we were in Bracebridge. We are generally new to gluten free options after a few health issues, and the owner was so great in explaining the products! She even packed the pasta specially so that we could camp with the pasta without it going bad! We also tried the focaccia bread (to die for!!) and the banana cream and strawberry rhubarb tarts did not leave me missing the gluten!! By far the best GF options we have had. We will DEFINITELY be back!!!

  20. We just had a mushroom onion lasagne that I bought from the pasta shoppe today. It was amazing. You should all try it.

  21. Spoke with the owner for quite some time at the Royal Winter Fair and I bought one of each of what was offered. Excellent product.
