Are our brownies gluten-free?
What's the difference between Gluten Free and Wheat Free Brownies?
The term 'Gluten Free' is protected by law and can only be used if a business has had their products tested and certified to contain 20 parts per million (ppm) or less of gluten. We have not had this testing done.
We use the term 'Wheat Free' because our wheat-free brownies contain no gluten ingredients. However, there is a minuscule chance of cross-contamination in our kitchen, which is why we cannot guarantee they are free from gluten.
What precautions do you take to avoid cross-contamination?
When our brownies are baked, we take as many precautions as possible to avoid cross-contamination between our core range and our vegan wheat-free range. This includes:
- Storing our vegan and wheat-free ingredients in a separate area of the kitchen
- Storing our vegan and wheat-free utensils in a separate area of the kitchen
- Baking our core range and our vegan wheat-free range on separate days, to ensure the kitchen is thoroughly cleansed of gluten traces
Why are your brownies not Gluten Free?
Unfortunately, due to the size of our kitchen, some areas of the kitchen are shared between all product ranges. These include our sinks, mixer, and oven. There is a very small chance that a particle of gluten-containing ingredient could come into contact with a wheat-free product in one of these shared areas.
We take allergies very seriously and understand that gluten-related allergies can be extremely serious. For this reason, we label our wheat-free products as 'Wheat Free' and not 'Gluten Free'.
