Family firm Dialcos is one of Italy’s gluten and wheat free food producers.
Under the Dialsi brand it markets a wide range of premium products from pasta, bread mix and stock and seasoning to biscuits and cakes.
Grand-daughter of the founder, Elena Buchberger is now importing this range into the UK alongside Vidafree, a range of Italian gluten-free biscuits and cakes.
Elena Buchberger said:
“There is a growing demand for great tasting gluten-free products fuelled not just by the increasing number of people diagnosed with coeliac disease but also from consumers who opt for gluten free as a lifestyle choice.
“We have been marketing the Dialsi range in Italy for many years with an emphasis on high quality dietetic products that don’t compromise on taste.
“Both Vidafree is also produced to a very high standard and we feel confident that this range will enjoy the same success here in the UK.”
Dialcos revolutionised the market back in the 1960s by producing the first ground vegetable concentrate for stocks and seasonings, providing an alternative to the ‘stock cube’.
Now a known name in Italy, Dialbrodo Classico made with fresh vegetables and Gusto Ricco, made with beef extract, are a big brand in the stocks and seasonings market.
There are six products in the range including some formulated for those with special dietary needs.
Made from corn and rice with no additives the Dialsi gluten free pasta range is slow dried and uses an extrusion process which makes the surface of the pasta rough.
This allows it to better absorb the sauce.
There are nine pastas in the range including Riccioli, Fusilli, Penne and Rigatoni.
With the aim of balancing health, well-being and taste Dialcos offers a wide range of dietetic products including gluten-free, enriched and low-sodium.
Elena will be selling all the ranges online under her newly launched company, Elena’s Gluten-Free Way.
