Coeliac Awareness Week is an important time to recognize the challenges faced by individuals living with coeliac disease and the need for gluten-free options in their daily lives. Chocolate, a universally loved treat, should be accessible to everyone, including those with gluten sensitivities. In this blog post, we'll discuss the journey of creating gluten-free chocolate and the efforts made to ensure a safe and delicious treat for coeliac sufferers and those with gluten sensitivities.

Understanding Coeliac Disease and Gluten Sensitivity

Coeliac disease is an autoimmune disorder where the ingestion of gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye, leads to damage in the small intestine. Symptoms can range from mild to severe, and the only treatment is to maintain a strict, lifelong gluten-free diet.

Gluten sensitivity, on the other hand, is a less severe reaction to gluten that can still cause digestive issues and discomfort. In both cases, individuals must avoid gluten-containing foods to maintain their health and well-being.

If you or someone you know is affected by coeliac disease or gluten sensitivity, Coeliac UK offers valuable resources, support, and information to help manage these conditions. Visit their website at for guidance and advice.

The Journey to Gluten-Free Chocolate at Fabulous Freefrom Factory

At Fabulous Freefrom Factory, we understand the importance of providing high-quality gluten-free and dairy-free chocolate options for individuals with dietary restrictions. One crucial aspect of creating our gluten-free chocolate is sourcing the right ingredients, particularly soya flour, which is used as a base for our dairy-free chocolate.

To ensure the safety and quality of our products, we went to great lengths to find a mill that could produce gluten-free soya flour. This was a critical step in guaranteeing that our finished chocolate products are free from gluten contamination and safe for those with coeliac disease and gluten sensitivity.
