Arnott’s has expanded its Gluten Free range following its successful launch in 2021, to include Mint Slice, Shortbread Cream and TeeVee Snacks Original.

Arnott's business director, Treating, Ranita Cowled said, “After the overwhelmingly positive response to our Gluten Free product launch in 2021, we are thrilled to announce that the millions of consumers seeking out Gluten Free snacks will have three new Arnott’s favourites to indulge in.”

Arnott’s Group nutritionist, Alison Baldwin said the latest additions provide welcome variety for the many consumers seeking out Gluten Free snacks.

“Nearly 25 per cent of Australians restrict gluten or wheat, and many of those people have traditionally felt disappointed by the available offering, with as many as two thirds believing that the existing Gluten Free snacks don’t taste nearly as good as regular snacks, according to a study undertaken inhouse.

“Our teams have worked hard to create biscuits that taste great and that meet the strict requirements of the Coeliac Australia endorsement program, meaning all products will feature the Coeliac Australia Endorsement logo,” said Baldwin.

The new products will join the existing gluten free range which includes; Scotch Finger, Tiny Teddy, and Choc Ripple.

Gluten free Mint Slice, Shortbread Cream and TeeVee Snacks will be available on shelves in the biscuit aisle at Woolworths, Coles independent retailers from 13th June with an RRP of $5.30 each.
