Glutino Has a New Look!

I’ll be honest. I’m not always thrilled about packaging makeovers, especially when it comes to gluten-free and allergen-free products. There’s something comforting about the package that looks the same as the one we’ve been relying on for years. But I do like Glutino’s makeover:

I have noticed at my local health food store that some products still have the old packaging and there are some already on store shelves with the new look. But no worries, the product formulas haven’t changed; they are still the same trusted gluten-free ingredients.

Glutino sent me a box full of samples to try, including a new product – toaster pastries.

I must tell you that while all of these products are gluten-free, the cookies contain milk, eggs, soybean oil, and soy lecithin. The toaster pastries contain eggs. The crackers contain eggs and may contain milk. While definitely suitable for those who need to avoid gluten and suitable for some with food allergies, others should proceed with caution.

My favorite of the bunch are the pretzel chips. They are the most suitable for those with multiple food allergies; they contain soy lecithin (but no soy protein). I love that they are called chips because they are thin and crunchy like a chip. And they’ve been reformulated to reduce the fat while keeping 3 grams of fiber per serving.

Be careful, they are addictive. I filled up this bowl to take a picture, tried a few, then tried a few more. Before I knew it the bowl was empty.

Glutino sent some gluten-free fact cards along with the goodies. My favorite fact? Glutino’s products are currently produced with less than 10 parts per million of gluten – the industry standard is 20 parts per million. Kudos to Glutino!

We love glutino pretzels. I actually think they taste better than "regular" wheat pretzels. I will look for the pretzel chips as they look SO good too.
