Great news if you eat gluten-free – we’re the first supermarket to sign up to Coeliac UK’s Gluten-free Guarantee in all Asda stores in their aim to improve availability of gluten-free food in UK supermarkets.
One in 100 people in the UK has coeliac disease, which is caused by intolerance to gluten, the symptoms range from mild to severe and can include bloating, nausea, constipation, tiredness, weight loss, skin problems and depression.
Coeliac UK, the national charity for people with coeliac disease, have asked supermarkets to stock eight core items of gluten-free food across all their stores – making it easier for people with coeliac disease to manage their diet without having to shop around. Every single Asda – including our smaller stores – will be stocking these eight items including white bread, pasta, cereal, flour and cereal bars.
We’ve expanded our Chosen by you Free From range of gluten, wheat and dairy free options. This year we welcomed some delicious new additions to the range – including Shortbread, Belgian Chocolate Rocky Road, Chocolate Muffins, Cheese Crackers, Chocolate and Hazelnut Spread and an amazing range of cooking sauces!
