Staying away from gluten doesn’t necessarily mean you have to stay away from delicious treats. Walker’s Gluten-Free Shortbread delivers the same crumbly deliciousness of their gluten-carrying counterparts, but they’re completely free of gluten! On top of being great to enjoy on their own, our gluten-free shortbread can also be used to make remarkable gluten-free treats that everyone will love, whether they avoid gluten or not.
WHAT DOES GLUTEN FREE MEAN, AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Gluten free is a term used to describe food products that are free of wheat, barley, and rye. These grains contain the protein gluten, which can cause serious health problems in people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivities. For those with these conditions, it's important to avoid eating foods that contain gluten in order to maintain good health. Gluten-free foods are becoming increasingly popular for people without these medical conditions as well due to the potential health benefits of avoiding gluten.
HOW DO I KNOW IF A PRODUCT IS TRULY GLUTEN FREE?
To know if a product is truly gluten free, consumers should look for a certification symbol or label on the product packaging that indicates it has been tested and certified to meet specific gluten-free standards.
Coeliac UK has given their Crossed Grain Trademark to all of Walker’s Gluten Free Shortbread products to signify that they’re all completely free of gluten. (Coeliac is the preferred UK spelling of celiac.) Coeliac UK's Crossed Grain Trademark
In addition to looking for a certification symbol or label, consumers can also read the ingredients list to look for ingredients that may contain gluten, such as wheat, barley, rye, and oats. While some manufacturers include a statement on their packaging indicating that the product is gluten free, it's important to note that these statements are not regulated and may not always be accurate.
If you have celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, it's important to be diligent about reading labels and only consuming products that have been certified as gluten free to avoid potential health risks.
