Heinz launched their gluten free range last year, but to help make life easier for people with coeliac disease, they have now launched a series of short videos which help conjure simple recipes – perfect for when you’ve rolled in from work and are feeling uninspired. The recipes, including favourites such as this aubergine, chilli and feta bake.
And now you have a chance to WIN some of Heinz’s amazing gluten free pastas and pasta sauces -just see the competition below.
Research by Heinz found a frustration amongst coeliac and gluten intolerance sufferers, who found that gluten free recipes tend to feel complicated or inaccessible. I can relate – a lot of the times they seem to refer to expensive ingredients, or complicated flour mixes I simply don’t have time to make. In response to this, Heinz is launching a series of simple 15 second recipe videos using the ‘Deliciously Gluten Free’ range of pasta and pasta sauce.
The videos will be hosted on the Heinz YouTube channel. Bobbie Staden, marketing executive from Heinz, said: “People who are gluten intolerant can have a difficult time finding quick and easy meal solutions. This campaign works to close this gap by providing delicious meal solutions that are quick to make, healthy, only require a few ingredients and won’t burn a hole in your pocket.”
The Heinz gluten free range features three Italian pasta varieties: Penne, Macaroni and Spaghetti with two tasty pasta sauces: Tomato Frito and Tomato & Basil. The pastas are available in 500g bags at a RRP of £1.80 each and the pasta sauces are available in a 210g tetra pack, with a RRP of £0.89. The small individual portion size of the sauces is designed for added convenience and to reduce waste.
All five products feature the crossed grain symbol – certifying them gluten-free – and with no artificial colours, no artificial flavours and no artificial preservatives, Heinz is proud that these are products its consumers can really trust.
