Italian pasta maker Garofalo is tapping into the demand for more gluten-free products with a new pasta range.

Sold in the UK by Continental Quattro Stagioni (CQS), Garofalo’s gluten-free pasta is available in caserecce, linguine, penne rigate and spaghetti shapes.

Produced in Gragnano, near Naples – considered by many to be the ‘birthplace’ of pasta – the pasta is wheat free, and is made with corn, rice and quinoa. It contains 7g of fibre per 100g.

Appropriate dishes

CQS vice chairman Sandro Bevilacqua said: "With so many consumers following a gluten free diet, either through choice or by necessity, it is important that restaurant operators can offer their customers a range of appropriate pasta dishes.

"With decades of experience under its belt, Garofalo has developed this exceptional range of quality gluten-free pastas and I am sure that they will prove very popular."

Garofalo gluten-free pasta is available from CQS in cases of 12x500g and at a list price of £22.65.

CQS also represents a number of Italian wineries, such as Cantina di Soave and Rocca delle Macie and has exclusive distribution agreements with La Molisana pasta, Montana meats and Roccheta waters.

Last month, Garofalo introduced La Giostra dei Bambini – a pasta range for children and babies.
