For those who can’t eat gluten, this is great news, in fact, it will make you happy little Vegemites.
That’s right, after being in development for the last two years, a gluten-free Vegemite will hit supermarket shelves this week!
With up to a quarter of Aussies not avoiding gluten in their diet, Vegemite marketing manager Matt Gray said “Working with baker’s gluten-free yeast we think we’ve nailed the Vegemite taste.’
Coeliac Australia chief Michelle Laforest commended the new Vegemite.
“It’s so important that companies innovate to ensure there are options for Australians suffering from coeliac disease. For children, not being able to eat what their friends consume can create a real sense of loneliness and isolation,” she said.
The new gluten-free low FODMAP Vegemite will be stocked nationally from this week.
