Stella’s Inc. Founder & Owner Keri Adams’ story began with a little boy, a very sore tummy and finally, a diagnosis. Autism. With tons of therapy, natural interventions and changes to Korbin’s diet, Stella’s Gluten-Free Perogies were born. Dairy, egg, and soy-free, Keri was able to reverse 95% of Korbin’s symptoms. She and her husband were on their way to getting their baby back using her grandmother Stella’s recipe and fresh potatoes from a local farmer as their base. Stella’s non-GMO and preservative-free Perogies, Ravioli and Pizza Pouches took the 2014 Canadian Celiac Association National Conference by storm. Compare Stella’s with perogies that contain up to 22 ingredients and you’ll know that theirs is a product dedicated to purity. Stella’s uses only certified gluten-free ingredients in a dedicated facility but still tests finished products to confirm that they are 100% gluten free. Read more here!
