Our expanding Gluten Free range

Infinity Food’s expanding range of own brand gluten free products all now feature the crossed grain symbol, the guarantee that the product contains less than 20 parts per million gluten.

Gluten, which is found in wheat, barley and rye triggers an immune reaction in people with coeliac disease. This means that eating gluten damages the lining of the small intestine. Other parts of the body may also be affected. For people who suffer from coeliac disease, this guarantee of a gluten free product is an essential requirement.

 

Like organic produce, the gluten free market has expanded considerably in recent years as people become increasingly aware of their diets. Intolerances to wheat as well as the desire to consume less wheat based products have increased the demand for gluten free produce to such an extent that we are now able stock a comprehensive and ever evolving range of gluten free products.

Any products featuring the crossed grain symbol, be they Infinity own brand or other branded goods, will have attained the gluten free certification following analysis, approved by the Codex Committee on Methodology, Sampling and Analysis (CCMAS) using the R5-sandwich ELISA (Mendez method). This is the industry standard test for products wishing to attain gluten free status.

The presence of the Crossed Grain symbol is your assurance of a certified gluten free product, allowing peace of mind and a guarantee of quality.
