GlutenFree is the acronym for "Tasty and healthy gluten-free bakery products and pasta - improved products for wide consumer acceptance". It is a 2 year R+D project that is being funded by the EC's Seventh Framework Programme under the specific programme "Capacities - Research for SMEs".






Project Factsheet
GlutenFree aims to enable small and medium sized enterprises to produce gluten-free bakery products and pasta having high consumer acceptance in order to participate in this profitable market sector and ultimately to significantly improve their competitiveness. This aim will be achieved by utilising optimised raw materials, and ingredients derived from these, which are able to effectively replace gluten and gluten-containing ingredients and by adapting the relevant food production processes. The fundamental evaluation of consumer preferences, acceptance and needs will allow target-orientated food developments and the promise of well-accepted products for end users.
