Rizopia May 2017 Newsletter

This month, we’re touching on an important subject – and one very close to our hearts. The annual gluten-free awareness week takes place, run by Coeliac Awareness.

As I’m sure you’ll know, many of our Rizopia family are gluten-free, or Coeliac.

In fact, we first launched here in the UK when, 20 years ago, the daughter of our founder was diagnosed with Coeliac disease. At the time, there were hardly any gluten-free pastas available (and those that were around would either shatter your teeth, or would not be eaten by a fussy toddler!), and so our founder embarked on a worldwide quest to find the best gluten-free pasya around.

Eventually, he stumbled upon a wonderful family business in Canada. He found out that they used only whole grain brown rice in their state of the art machines, and created dried pasta ready for use.  No bleaching, no additives, and no over-refining of any kind.  Just 100% goodness! When he finally took a bite of Rizopia, he was instantly sold, and immediately decided to bring it to the UK and Europe.

And so, pasta history was made, and here we are…

Years later, and we’re proud to have won many Free-From food awards for our range of gluten-free pastas. Yet, while we’re all for feeding everyone up with gluten-free goodness, we think it’s equally important to educate our readers and customers, too.

So, welcome to this, our special gluten-free newsletter, packed with useful information and tips and advice for anyone on a free-from diet.

Until next month,
