Eurostar Commodities launch gluten free chapati flours
Eurostar Commodities has launched a new range of chapati flours which are gluten free, coeliac friendly, higher in fibre and vegan.
Philip Bull, managing director Eurostar Commodities said: “This launch comes on the back of significant research and development. We recognised the increasing consumer demand for gluten-free products, however, within this category there is varying quality.
“We wanted to create a product that has excellent extensibility that is consistently reliable and ultimately tastes incredible, with great texture – certainly as good as, if not better than similar products which contain gluten. What many people like is that it also comes in a traditional white flour which is an extremely popular choice.”
Mintel reports that 15% of UK households are now avoiding gluten and more people opt for “free-from” and “clean-label” products as a lifestyle choice. Euromonitor forecasts the global gluten free retail market at $4.7bn by 2020 (up from $3.5bn in 2016).
Eurostar Commodities Gluten Free Chapati Flour is available in 1.5kg and 3kg bags and is available in three varieties; Medium Brown, White and Wholemeal (launching January 2020).
