Gluten free guide

of naturally gluten free food

Nature offers plenty of gluten free raw materials, using which we can prepare delicious and nutritionally correct courses. Many of these ingredients, especially corn, rice and potato flours can be very useful for the preparation of first courses where wheat flour must be replaced by a gluten free ingredient. Otherwise, you can use meat, fish, clams, eggs without special limitations. Whenever it is not possible to replace wheat flour with a naturally gluten free flour, we can use products from the dietetics industry offering a wide range of gluten free products: flours, pasta, bread, biscuits, preparations for cakes, pizzas. They are all comparable to the gluten products for flavor, nutritional and organoleptic facts.

Basic rules

1 – Avoid products which you don’t know the content of and only use ingredients absolutely safe, like:
• Naturally gluten free produces (vegetables, fruits, meat, fish, eggs, milk).
• Food products appearing in Gluten free guide of the national association of celiac disease.
• Dietetics products (prepared by manufacturers authorized by the Ministry of Health) like Vidafree.
2 – Keep an area of the cupboard only for gluten free food;
3 – Carefully wash your hands after preparing courses with common flours;
4 – Clean the kitchen tools if previously used to prepare courses containing gluten;
5 – Make sure that pans, griddles or grills are free of any crumbs or traces of flour;
6 – Make sure that the cooking water for the pasta and the frying oil did not get in touch with any food containing gluten;
7 – Sprinkle the food (meat, vegetables, cheese) and thicken sauces exclusively with gluten free flours;
8 – Don’t make coffee with the same machine used for barley coffee.
