For the millions of Australians who are avoiding or intolerant to gluten, Arnott’s has expanded gluten free range, launching Gluten Free Jatz and Gluten Free Barbecue Shapes.

Available nationwide from early April, the brand-new savoury gluten free range is made from a carefully crafted gluten free baking blend, offering the same great taste and quality that Arnott’s is known for.

Endorsed by Coeliac Australia & New Zealand, the launch follows last year’s release of the highly anticipated Gluten Free Tim Tam, as Arnott’s continues to cater to the dietary requirements of gluten free consumers. Other Arnott’s favourites already available in the Gluten Free range include Scotch Finger, Mint Slice, TeeVee Snacks, Choc Ripple, Shortbread Cream and Tiny Teddy.

Marco Maiese, marketing manager, Arnott’s crackers and crispbread, said: “Bringing the taste and quality of Arnott’s products to gluten free consumers is a priority for our business. We are convinced that the Gluten Free Jatz and Gluten Free Barbecue Shapes are the best tasting savoury gluten free snacks on the market.”

Gluten Free Jatz and Gluten Free Barbecue Shapes are available in Coles, Woolworths and independent retailers with an RRP of $5.50 each.
