Next month sees the return of Coeliac Awareness Week – run by Coeliac UK.
As well as celebrating their 50th Anniversary, this year the charity is launching their Research Fund with a target of raising £5m by 2020 to invest in research into a cure for coeliac disease, a life-long condition that can be extremely debilitating.
It would be disappointing if having coeliac disease prevented anyone enjoying delicious French patisserie so we’re delighted that Tipiak’s extensive range of gluten-free macarons is accredited by The Association Française Des Intolérants Au Gluten (AFDIAG), the French equivalent to Coeliac UK….making it easy for food professionals to serve exquisitely French gluten-free macarons on their menus.
Marie-Emmanuelle Chessé, International Development Project Manager at Tipiak, said: “When it comes to macarons, food operators are spoilt for choice, with 16 gluten-free Tipiak varieties to choose from, including milk chocolate and passion fruit, blackcurrant and violet, and chocolate and coconut.
“Our range includes premium quality classic French macarons, contemporary pop macarons, and our chocolate macarons collection – and all are accredited as gluten-free. They have an amazing 19.7% almond content – higher than any others in the marketplace and ensuring the best flavour and stability – and are all hand-finished by experienced pâtissiers for authentic French flair.
“Sales of Tipiak macarons across the UK have increased by more than 24% year on year recently … and we’re so pleased that they appeal to diners who avoid gluten, as well as everyone else. We’d be very pleased to hear from foodservice professionals who’d like to find out more about our gluten-free macarons, which are perfect served with coffee, as a dessert sharing platter with dips, crafted into an elegant macaron tower centre piece, as part of your afternoon tea service, as a mini-dessert or for gifting or on-the-go.”
Coeliac UK believes the catering industry is missing out on an estimated £100 million a year by not catering for people with coeliac disease and their friends and family….so it’s well worth food outlets ensuring gluten-free items, like Tipiak’s macarons, are on the menu.
Coeliac UK is urging food services and businesses to show their support during Coeliac Awareness Week from 14th to 20th May by making a positive change to either their menu or product range. Further details of Coeliac UK’s Research Fund initiative can be found here:
