Cater for guests with a gluten free diet at your next dinner party with Barilla’s new range of gluten free pastas that still cook and taste like regular pasta.
In this day and age, it’s more and more common for Australians to have food allergies, intolerances or other issues with food. Problems with gluten are high on this list, with Coeliac disease affecting an increasing number of Australians.
The new range of gluten free pastas are a unique formulation of flours that are naturally gluten free rather than refined starches. This combination enables it to cook and taste like regular pasta.
