Is gluten free food 'expensive'?
Sometimes we get asked why is
There are three main reasons.
1) The number of ingredients
2) Guaranteeing a free-from supply chain
1) The number of ingredients.
You can make gluten bread with just a few ingredients. Flour, water, yeast and some form of fat.
For our gluten-free
All those different ingredients need to be sourced 100% gluten-free,
2) Free From supply chain.
We have to source products from all over the world to ensure we can get everything 100% gluten and allergen free. That's a lot of research, factory visits and purchase and delivery agreements to arrange for each ingredient, which all needs staff time to organise.
In order to guarantee
For gluten, we guarantee less than 5 parts per million (that’s even better than the 20 parts per million
We test for items highlighted in red below. For the other known major allergens listed below we accept our supplier's free from guarantees and work very, very hard to make sure they're the best sources we can find.
