Knights gluten free range - just ask us!
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley, triticale and oats. In people with coeliac disease, eating or drinking anything containing gluten causes different symptoms and damage to the lining of the small bowel.
Despite the restrictions, a person on a gluten-free diet can still enjoy a wide and varied diet. It is important to read the labels of all packaged or prepared foods.
Many of our products at Knights are – or can be – gluten free. As our staff about gluten free crumbs, sausages and marinades or look for the GLUTEN FREE sticker above.
