Elizabeth Fradin from Betta Bakes

At Betta Bakes, a delicious transformation is taking place. What was once Beth Bakes RI is now emerging as Betta Bakes, and it's not just a name change; it's a culinary evolution. With five delectable flavors of gluten-free crisps, Betta Bakes is rewriting the snacking game. We’re selling crisps without compromise!

So, who's the culinary mastermind behind Betta Bakes? Let's introduce you to the heart and soul of this brand: Elizabeth Fradin.

A Passionate Mother Turned Culinary Entrepreneur

Before Elizabeth embarked on her journey with Betta Bakes, she spent over twenty years as a dedicated stay-at-home mom. Her life was filled with the joys and challenges of motherhood. But before that, she was deeply involved in the arts, showcasing her creative side and passion for expression.

Now, Elizabeth has taken her artistic spirit and channeled it into the world of gluten-free baking. The transition from "Beth" to "Betta" symbolizes the growth, evolution, and maturation of the brand. It's not just a name change; it's a promise of something greater.

The Secrets of Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Soy-Free, Dairy-Free, and Egg-Free Baking

Elizabeth's journey into gluten-free baking has been a fascinating learning experience. She's uncovered a multitude of insights along the way. One of her key takeaways is that many recipes can easily transition into gluten-free versions.

But perhaps the most exciting aspect of gluten-free baking for Elizabeth is the endless array of alternative flours. She loves experimenting with unique options like apple flour, sorghum, teff, millet, buckwheat, and many more. Each of these flours brings its own distinctive flavor and texture, adding a whole new dimension to her creations.

Cracker vs. Crisp: The Textural Distinction

Betta Bakes Crisps vs Cracker

One question that often arises in the snacking world is the difference between a "cracker" and a "crisp." For Elizabeth, it's all about the texture. Crisps, as the name suggests, deliver a quick and satisfying crunch, creating a delightful contrast with their thin, delicate nature. Crackers, on the other hand, tend to be thicker with more body.

A Flavor for Every Mood

The Betta Bakes menu includes the likes of Classic Sea Salt, Pumpkin Seed & Cumin, Currant & Fennel, Everything Bagel, and Summer Garden Herb. With so many options to choose from, it's no wonder that Elizabeth's favorite product can change depending on her mood. At the moment, she leans towards the slightly sweet and subtly savory Currant Fennel crisp, but she also holds a special place in her heart for the Classic Sea Salt flavor.
