Gluten-free flour for any recipe
The exclusive formula of the selected GLUTEN-FREE mixture was developed by industry-based specialists to meet this demand. It is a mixture that can be used for both sweet and savoury doughs, for bread, pizzas and bakery goods.
Why choose gluten-free flour?
Gluten is a composite of proteins in cereals found in wheat and some varieties of cereals, such as emmer wheat, spelt, triticale, barley and rye. Some people have disorders linked to gluten which, although the symptoms are the same (bloating and stomach pains, fatigue), have a different origin and diagnosis:
- Coeliac disease: an autoimmune disorder that mainly affects the intestine since the immune system reacts to the gluten damaging the intestinal mucus.
- Gluten sensitivity: the symptoms are similar to those of coelic disease and wheat allergy without being either of the two illnesses.
- Wheat allergy: mainly affects the skin and respiratory tract and the symptoms include baker’s asthma or rhinitis.
Gluten intolerance, i.e. coeliac disease or sensitivity, affects about 1% of the population and can start at any age, so much so that many people suffer from it without even knowing.
For all these people, then, using gluten-free flour is linked to health reasons, but does not mean having to sacrifice taste.
The different kinds of
There are some types of flour that are naturally gluten-free (e.g. rice, chestnut, etc.) and can be used for certain types of cooking, but are less suited to baking. There are also flour mixes that are enhanced with natural or chemical ingredients with which products, that more closely resemble those containing gluten, can be made. So, there are a large number of gluten-free flour mixes on the market, but obviously not all of them produce the same result in terms of taste.
