Products manufactured by Aliments ED Foods labelled “gluten-free”

Aliments ED Foods takes celiac disease seriously and takes a number of precautions to ensure that individuals with intolerance to gluten can consume our gluten-free products.

These measures include:

  • All ingredients in our gluten-free recipes do not contain gluten.
  • All yeasts are grown on a non-wheat base.
  • Our manufacturing scheduling is designed to ensure that our gluten-free products are handled in a way to avoid cross contamination with other gluten containing products.
  • Verification by an external laboratory for absence of gluten.

All our products labelled as “Gluten-free” have been produced in accordance with these measures. 

Please refer to the attached letter from our R&D and QA manager for additional information about Aliments ED Foods’ gluten-free production processes.

 

Gluten is the protein complex found in wheat, rye, barley and other related grains. It is a mixture of 2 proteins – gliadin and glutelin. Celiac disease is an intolerance to the gliadin component. Gluten-free products do not contain the gliadin and are handled in a way to avoid cross contamination with other gliadin containing products. 

 

Best regards,
