The Importance of Gluten-Free Ingredients


Food is something we all need and up until recently, local supermarkets and food retailers didn’t actively cater for those with dietary needs. It wasn’t considered something that the masses wanted but ever since we’ve become more aware about our health and what we put into our bodies, more of us are seeking an alternative when it comes to our diet. Now, you’ll find that the choices for gluten-free options are a lot greater than before, including our Italian deli online.

In fact, a lot more of us have an intolerance to gluten and there are many theories as to why that might be. An example of such is that we’re digesting too much food and drink that causes an imbalance to our gut flora. This imbalance is a common lead to gluten intolerance. Others have suggested that in fact, this spike is due to those who don’t actually need gluten-free products but are seeing it as a healthier alternative to their normal diet.

Whatever the case may be, the demand for gluten-free options is not going away, so here at Diforti we wanted to be inclusive, and cater to anyone who requires these ingredients for a better gut or for those just wishing to try something new.

We have a popular range of gluten-free pasta that you may have thought wasn’t available. Our Rummo Gluten-Free Spaghetti is a tasty choice of a traditional and classic pasta shape. We also have the Rummo Gluten-Free Penne Rigate that’s great to use for a delicious pasta bake. As well as our pasta, we also provide a gluten-free option for breadsticks. These Gluten Free Breadsticks are made from corn and are flavoured with extra-virgin olive oil. It’s the perfect party food snack and can be enjoyed alongside some of our cheeses.

The sauces and toppings we have on offer, are also suitable. A favourite combination is the Chilli Tapenade for those who like a little heat with some sliced Porchetta. Or perhaps the Nut Free Basil Pesto mixed with our antipasto selection.

Our pastries have  been made into gluten-free options as well such as our Salted Caramel Gluten-free Cannoli  and our Hazelnut Gluten-free Cannoli. These are traditional Italian pastries, originating from the island of Sicily and are traditionally enjoyed with a hot beverage. They’d also go down a storm with guests if you’re throwing a dinner party or food gifts and food gifts ideas.

As a lot of traditional Italian ingredients use wheat, we are very proud to be able to create gluten-free alternative versions that can be enjoyed by everyone. It’s great to see more retailers of food providing a wider range of dietary options and here at Diforti, we understand the importance of gluten-free food and we want all of our dishes to cater for that.

Diforti has everything you need to create authentic Italian food, using our ingredients. So why not fill up a basket and get cooking. You can also check out our blog for more inspiration on new dishes and recipes to try.
