No, unfortunately not. In order to be gluten free certified there is far more required than just to use gluten free ingredients. Before we can even start producing our gluten free mueslis and porridges, a number of steps have to be completed:
First the seed is checked to ensure that it contains gluten free cereals only, and a suitable field is selected for cultivation of the crop. It is important that the preceding crop was not a gluten-containing cereal, and that the fields were ploughed in the interim.
While the plants are growing, the field is inspected several times to remove any gluten-containing cereal plants that have slipped through the net.
Prior to harvesting it is important that the combine harvesters are cleaned very thoroughly.
There are also lots of factors to consider with regard to storage of the harvested oats: the logistics department has to ensure that the gluten free oats are only transported from the field in pre-washed trailers, and that special containers are used for storage to rule out the possibility of subsequent cross-contamination during transport.
A pre-washed forklift is used to load the containers onto a pre-cleaned HGV.
At the processing facility, it is important to ensure that the oats enter via an intake reserved exclusively for gluten free cereals. Likewise, the oats may only be processed on a dedicated gluten free line.
Finally, before the actual gluten free product can be produced at our plant, we have to carry out an extensive deep clean to remove any traces of gluten. That’s how we really ensure that our breakfast friends with celiac disease can enjoy our gluten free porridge and muesli. This step takes about another 2-3 hours.
