Roberts’ gluten-free range wins approval

12 November, 2012

A new gluten-free range from family-owned plant baker Roberts has won widespread support from the coeliac community.

Roberts’ Yes! You Can range, which was launched in June and is available nationwide in Tesco and at selected Co-operative stores, was recently on show at the Allergy and Free From Show in Liverpool.

Yes! You Can is manufactured in Roberts’ specialist gluten-free bakery in Hawarden, Cheshire and is lower in fat than most gluten-free loaves. The range includes a 600g ‘fresh brown’ sliced loaf and a 600g ‘fresh white’ sliced loaf.

With just 3.2% fat in the fresh white loaf and 3.7% in the fresh brown loaf, ‘Yes! You Can’ offers a significant fat reduction of as much as half the fat of many other fresh gluten-free breads.

More than 5,000 people attended the show and top coeliac blogger Sean Stembridge said on his website – liveglutenfree.com: “We have heard a lot about this brand of bread and all of it good. After tasting it I fully understand why… it actually tasted like bread… but is gluten-free. I know, it’s shocking, but I was blown away with how good this tastes.”

Another blog – mummyfever.blogspot.co.uk – said: “Roberts succeeds where others fail. So many wheat and gluten-free items are awful. Some fall apart if you look at them in the wrong way, some taste awful, some are only any good toasted. With the Roberts Yes! You Can range you can actually make and enjoy a sandwich... a revelation sometimes for those of us who don’t eat wheat or gluten.”
