Top 5 gluten free products to add to your festive menu

If you’re thinking of ways to make your menus more inclusive – then including gluten free products is a great way to do this! With 1 in 5 people in the UK identifying as having a gluten free diet (whether through intolerances or dietary preferences)*, it’s really important to consider offering delicious options that cater for this group.

Thankfully, here at Bidfood we have a fantastic range of gluten free products for your gluten free festive menu.

1. Whitby Seafoods gluten free wholetail scampi (14103)

First up we have a classic – Scampi! This one uses premium British caught langoustine tails coated of course in a special gluten free coating. Either serve classic style with chips and garden peas as a main or partner with a super seeded salad for delicious and light alternative.

Don’t forget, if you’re deep frying, you need to have a separate gluten free fryer! Read more advice on catering for allergens on our dedicated allergens page, and previous blog: 3 considerations when managing allergens  or the Food Standards Agency allergen guidance for food businesses.

2. Sidoli British blackcurrant prosecco cheesecake (15107)

Creamy, fruity and boozy! This decadent cheesecake has a gluten free biscuit base, which is then topped with a luxury baked cheesecake and finished off with British blackcurrants in a prosecco glaze.

P.S. It’s pre-portioned for ease! Just simply thaw and serve with a mint garnish.

3. Gluten free pigs in blankets (40577)

An integral part of Christmas dinner and a firm favourite for many – pigs in blankets are a must! Ensure no one misses out by including gluten free ones on your menu.

Serve as part of a Christmas Day main or serve as part of a wider buffet/ party menu.

4. Premium Selection brie and beetroot chutney tart in a kale pastry (60648)

Everyone knows that Brie is going to make an appearance at Christmas (and so it should!), and partnered up with sweet beetroot chutney is a partnership made in heaven!

That’s all neatly encased in a light gluten free kale pastry tart, making a delicious starter on any gluten free festive menu.

5. Cobbs mini stollen bites (13616)

New for this year, these mini stollen bites are an absolute treat! Soft almond and cinnamon sponge matched with the distinct flavour of marzipan and stuffed with juicy sultanas, all finished off with flaked almonds and icing sugar.

Enjoy warmed as a delicious afternoon snack.
