Unicorn Ingredients has confirmed its latest range of seeds meets growing market demand for gluten-free products, as well as ongoing demand for products that are nutritionally beneficial.
Many seeds are naturally gluten-free, however, this in itself is not sufficient; a guarantee that there has been no cross contamination in the supply chain is also necessary.
“Controlling the supply chain is the key part,” says Frank Horan, joint managing director of Unicorn Ingredients. The company works closely with its supply chain to provide full traceability of products and a guarantee of quality and safety.
“We are rising to the challenge of increasing demand for gluten-free seeds and are able to work with our customers to provide products that are guaranteed gluten-free either by supplier certification or product analysis,” explains Horan.
“In fact, we are going even further than that. Whilst the standard definition of a gluten-free product is that it contains less than 20 parts per million (ppm), an increasing number of our customers are asking for seeds that contain less than 5ppm and we can do that too.”
