Go Gluten Free

Gluten Free is a buzzword in the food space today. Lots of people are opting for a gluten-free lifestyle today. Not sure what the fuss is all about? Read on to know more!

What is gluten?

Gluten is a protein found in several types of grains, inclusive of wheat, barley, and rye. Gluten consists of Gliadin and Glutenin. When the flour is mixed with water, gluten forms a sticky cross-linked network of proteins, giving elastic properties to the dough and allowing bread to rise when it is baked. Due to this property, it is widely used in many bakery items.
A gluten intolerance is the body’s inability to digest or break down the gluten protein.  Gluten, a mixture of two proteins found in grains, especially wheat, has been infamously in the limelight. Gluten intolerance is a new age issue diagnosed to many. Gluten is tolerant to most people, however, people with celiac disease cannot digest this protein, thus need to consume gluten free foods. Being easier to digest, gluten free breads are an alternative for gluten tolerants also.

Gluten free meals can be both healthy and delicious. For breakfast opt for scrambled eggs on our gluten-free artisanal bread, or gluten-free oatmeal with chopped nuts, frozen berries and milk with brown sugar. These two nutrient loaded options will be the healthy start to your power packed day.

For lunch, go light with a taco salad, using corn tortillas, black beans, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sliced olives, salsa and sour cream.  You can even wrap a chicken salad in a brown rice tortilla, making a nutritious yet delicious meal.

Live up to the British culture of high tea but with a healthy twist! Make the perfect high tea tiered bread cake with our gluten free range of breads. Not only is this delicious, but also very healthy. All you need to do is, cut small circles of our gluten free bread and layer it with mascarpone cheese and jam alternatively with berries. Stack it up and keep with a skewer to keep in place.

Whisk up and extravagant dinner with chicken roasted with garlic, onion, carrots, and red potatoes. Have it with some gluten-free fusilli in marinara sauce.
