How Lo-Dough is Perfect for your Gluten Free Diet
Lo-Dough is a gluten-free bread and pastry alternative which allows people who are gluten intolerant to enjoy freedom with food. Gluten-free pizzas, pies, quiches and wraps are just some of the things you can make with our Lo-Dough bases. Gluten intolerance no longer has to mean miserable restrictions, because frankly, life is too short.
If you have coeliac disease and/or dermatitis herpetiformis you have to avoid gluten for life. Screening studies suggest that one in 100 people have coeliac disease in the UK, yet only 30% of the people with the condition have been diagnosed. Meaning that roughly half a million people in the UK are currently undiagnosed.
Obvious sources of gluten include foods that contain traditional flour such as, bread, pasta, cereal, cakes and biscuits. However, Lo-Dough isn't produced with traditional wheat flour - making it a perfect gluten-free ingredient for your favourite meals.
Lo-Dough contains wheat fibre - how can it be gluten free?
A commonly asked question we get is:
“how can Lo-Dough contain wheat fibre and also be a gluten free product?”
The answer is simple. Lo-Dough uses a dietary fibre which is made from the wheat plant, and has been certified gluten-free in line with the UK and European legislation. This means it has been officially certified to contain less than 20mg/kg of gluten. In fact, the wheat fibre we use in our bases falls below a gluten level of 10mg/kg.
Important: If you have a severe wheat allergy we do not recommend using Lo-Dough as some of the other wheat-based allergens may still be present.
How Lo-Dough works on a gluten free diet
Lo-Dough has changed the lives of people on a gluten-free diet, because it opens the door towards foods which are usually off the menu. It's high in fibre and protein as well as being gluten-free, dairy-free, and super low carb (2.2g per piece). This not only means that you can put pizza back on the menu (Lo-Dough makes a fantastic pizza base) - you can make some wonderful gluten-free desserts, quiche dishes, wraps and toasties to name a few. Check out the how to use Lo-Dough guide for more info.
