We hear more and more people talking about “gluten-free”. But what exactly is gluten?
Gluten is a protein found in all bread flours such as wheat, rye, barley, kamut, etc.. Gluten is a fundamental element in bakery. It gives elasticity and suppleness to pasta, allows breads to acquire volume and softness.
But gluten can also slow the absorption of nutrients, including iron, calcium and vitamins. For those intolerant or allergic or suffering of the celiac disease, it can even result in very significant health problems, such as destruction of the intestinal wall.
All of our products are certified gluten-free.
