Breadsticks Chocolate Fingers Head Into Sainsburys

Monday, 26 September 2011

It's good news for gluten-savvy Christmas shoppers as the maker of DS-gluten free and TRUfree announces that two more of its gluten and wheat free products are being stocked in Sainsbury's stores.

The DS-gluten free Breadsticks and TRUfree Chocolate Fingers hit the shelves at the beginning of September and they're both ideal for serving at festive drinks and dinner parties.

"Christmas is the season to eat, drink and make merry but if you're on a gluten free diet this can be easier said than done," said Michelle Shinn, Retail Brand Manager for DS-gluten free and TRUfree. "Fortunately, more and more gluten free products are becoming available on the supermarket shelves, making it easier to cater for those who don't eat gluten. Now that our DS-gluten free Breadsticks and TRUfree Chocolate Fingers are available in Sainsbury's, hopefully more people with coeliac disease or other gluten intolerances will be able to enjoy a little indulgence this Christmas."

DS-gluten free is the leading free from brand in the country and produces a range of gluten free products including breads, sweet breakfast rolls, crackers and biscuits.

"The Christmas season can be a bit of a minefield if you don't eat gluten, so the more free from products available in the supermarkets, the better!" added Michelle. "Customers can sometimes find it hard to buy quick snacks suitable for coeliacs, so we're really pleased to be able to offer even more choice."
