Tamari-Sauce-GF-Clearspring
Gluten Free Organic Tamari Sauce from Clearspring

Clearspring's Gluten Free Tamari Sauce

This Tamari sauce from Clearspring is Gluten and Wheat Free and made to a 500 year old recipe using traditional processes and equipment, it is then naturally fermented and aged in cedarwood kegs over two summers. Clearspring Organic Japanese Tamari Soya Sauce has an award-winning flavour that’s rich, full bodied, complex and concentrated – but never overpowering. It’s perfect as a dipping sauce, a condiment or as a traditional accompaniment to sushi and sashimi. It gives a great depth of savoury flavour to salad dressings, marinades, sauces, stir fries and cooked vegetable dishes. 

A tiny portion of roasted barley flour is used in the process of making Clearspring Orgnic Tamari Soya Sauce. Yet, in the light of gluten testing carried out, they are able to confirm that the long fermentation and ageing processes that this Organic Tamari Soya Sauce undergoes, eliminates the gluten proteins present in the barley. Following these results, the Coeliac Society decided to include Clearspring Organic Tamari Soya Sauce in their gluten free directory.

Nairn's-Oatcakes-Gluten-Free
Gluten Free Oatcakes from Nairn's

Nairn's Gluten Free Oatcakes

Nairn’s Gluten Free Oatcakes are high in fibre and Coeliac UK approved. They are made with gluten free wholegrain oats that are grown in dedicated fields and milled in uncontaminated conditions. Oatcakes contain a protein called avenin which is not suitable for some coeliacs and it is often recommended that you avoid oat products when first diagnosed and then only source uncontaminated oats, which is exactly what these oatcakes are made from! A firm favourite with Real Foods’ customers.
