Frequently Asked Questions
I've never heard of a product like it, how is this possible?
To create Lo-Dough we’ve developed a unique formulation of fibres and proteins, all of which have been used in food production for many years.
Is Lo-Dough gluten free?
Yes, Lo-Dough is gluten free. We use all certified gluten free ingredients. Lo-Dough is made in a facility where other ingredients containing gluten are used. So we make sure that all storage and production activity is kept separate and implement policies to avoid cross contamination. We regularly send our finished product to a UKAS Accredited laboratory to verify that it is gluten free. However, we are yet to apply for (and therefore receive) an official accreditation of gluten free status. If you are a coeliac and need absolute certainty that Lo-Dough is gluten free then we advise you wait until we have a certified certification.
How come it's gluten free if it has wheat fibre in it?
We use a dietary fibre, made from the wheat plant, which has been certified gluten free in line with 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 falls demonstrably below a gluten level of 10mg/kg.
Is Lo-Dough vegetarian/vegan?
Lo-Dough is vegetarian but not vegan as it contains dried free range egg white powder.
Can Lo-Dough be frozen?
Yes, Lo-Dough freezes perfectly, however most people find that this is not necessary since it comes in pouches of two pieces that have a 3 month shelf life. Once the pack has been opened, we recommend that you consume both pieces within 24 hours, although if kept sealed in the fridge they will last longer.
What is the shelf life of Lo-Dough?
Lo-Dough has a 3 month shelf life. It comes in sealed packets of two pieces, unopened these packets last for 3 months without need for refrigeration. Once opened the two pieces should be consumed within 1 day, although will last longer if kept in a sealed container in the fridge.
Do you use any artificial preservatives to give Lo-Dough such a long shelf life?
No, we don’t use any artificial preservatives, just a completely natural, but time consuming, production method.
