Coeliacs right around Australia have been excited by Arnott’s announcement of their brand new and fairly extensive gluten-free range.
The current products available in gluten-free versions include Arnott’s staples Mint Slices, Tiny Teddies, Shortbread Cream and Choc Ripples.
But none are bigger than Tim Tams, which is the most recent and arguably the most iconic treat to become gluten-free.
They are slightly more expensive, being sold for $5.50 for a seven pack compared to the regular eleven for $4.50.
Arnott’s say that they “have worked closely with Coeliac Australia to ensure the biscuits meet the strict requirements of their endorsement program, and the Coeliac Australia endorsement logo will feature on the pack.”
According to Arnott’s the new biscuits are “made in Australia with a Gluten Free flour blend, made from maize, tapioca, rice, sorghum, and soy.”
“All six biscuits were developed to the exacting taste specifications of Arnott’s culinary team. And great care was taken to achieve a delicious flavour and texture, like the lush cream in Shortbread Cream, or the choc mint melting moment of Mint Slice.”
A spokesperson from Arnott’s told news.com.au the brand was proud to bring the item to life.
“For the quarter of Aussies who avoid gluten in their diets, Arnott’s is proud to be able to provide a range of great tasting products for these Aussies including Mint Slice, Shortbread Cream, Tiny Teddy, Choc Ripple, Scotch Finger, and TeeVee Snacks Original; now including Gluten Free Tim Tam,” the spokesperson said.
“The product has started to appear on shelves, with wider availability from November at Coles, Woolworths, IGA and independent retailers.”
“In order to deliver a quality Gluten Free biscuit that not only doesn’t compromise on taste but adheres to the strict FSANZ (Food Standards Australia New Zealand) Food Standards Code requirements surrounding a no detectable gluten claim; our Gluten Free Tim Tam is made on a separate gluten-free line using a combination of high quality, gluten free ingredients which come at a higher cost versus original Tim Tam flavours.”
On their website, Arnott’s also offer a variety if gluten-free recipes which you can bake from home.
