Pulse all the ingredients in a food processor or mix by hand until all the liquid ingredients are absorb by the flour and it comes together into ball.

Knead well until the dough becomes silky and pliable. Divide into four balls.

Roll out each dough ball roughly into a circle about 1mm deep, dusting the dough lightly using cornflour or rice flour so not to stick to the rolling pin.

Pre-heat a non-stick frying pan until very hot, and then add the dough.

Cook until the dough begins to puff, let cook for 1 to 2 minutes approx. turning over half way. Remove and cool, then add your favourite filling.

Try cooking steak fillets on a pre-heated griddle, season to taste and cut into strips. Then serve inside a rolled up wrap with finely sliced spring onions and cucumber for a mouth-watering dish.

Please help us to make our products more widely available!

"The whole family really enjoyed the Dough balls. With 2 coeliacs in the family it was a delightful treat".

Please join our petition today!

Help us to get our products listed at retailers such as Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Morrison,  Co-operative, Booths, Tesco Ireland and  Superquinn Ireland.

We already managed to get our products listed at Waitrose, Ocado and Asda, but we still need your help to make the products more widely available for everyone – buyers will listen to your requests to stock products.

The Petition takes less than 5 minutes to filling in.

You may be thinking, “I’ve filled out customer comment cards and nothing ever happens. How can a single person or a small group of people in one town get big supermarkets to change?”

Supermarkets have a great deal to answer for in the communities where they do business. They must maintain a good public profile and answer to the needs of consumers, because supermarkets depend on the loyalty and trust of their customers to keep their business going.

When your supermarket sees a strong group of committed community members demanding better or greater variety of products, they have an interest in making sure that your requests are met.

Please ask your local coeliac group, friends and family members to join our petition. the more names we manage to gather the better chances we’ll have to succeed.

Please do get involved –  good products like ours are often get overlook by supermarket’s buyers  and might never make to the shelves of the retailers you visit on a weekly basis. These products might even disappear from the shelves of already stocking retailers…

Thank you for your strong commitment to better GF foods availability at the supermarkets!

YOUR COMMENTS:

1. Excellent standard, easy to use, gluten free, tasty & healthy food, excellent price for GF products. All supermarkets need to take a wider approach to supplying a more diverse & appetising selection of GF products. I originally buy in local Brazilian supermarket but it would be great for all to be able to buy these lovely GF products

2. Isabel’s cheesebread mix (dough balls) and pizza base mixes are a delicious and versatile product which is great for gluten-free diets. I find it really inconvenient to have to travel 35 miles to Harrogate to buy them at Waitrose – the nearest stockist.

3. Gluten Free products should be available freely and stand side by side on shelves with standard products, not as specialist products resigned to three shelves as a ‘special needs’ solely for consumers with medical/intolerance conditions. In other words – give people choice.

4.They’re a healthier option often for people without gluten intolerance too.

5. Because they are easy to use and give good results with very nice texture and flavour.

6. Apart from the obvious ‘coeliacs can’t eat gluten-containing products; they really don’t need to be just for us.

7. It’s not about making just gluten-free products available; it’s about getting out the ones that address wider markets, thanks to their quality. There are a lot of gluten free products available in supermarkets now, but I don’t buy them as they taste very sub-par, especially the bread-based products.

8. My boyfriend is also very fond of the Isabel’s Dough Balls and if they were available in more supermarkets we’d definitely buy them on regular basis.

9. Gluten free diet is not a lifestyle choice for me but a genuine health requirement. Where I can buy what I need is where I spend the family food budget I don’t have time to trail all over getting one thing here and another there.

10. I have had to eat gluten free food since i was born, and honestly the majority of it tastes rubbish! Can you imagine your life never eating pizza again?? Didn’t think so, these pizza base mixes are wonderful and taste really, really good coming from an Italian family we should know! Please stock them in your supermarkets so everyone has the chance of eating nice pizza! Thanks 🙂

11. These products are fantastic tasting and very easy to bake. They are popular both with coeliacs and non-coeliacs alike. They’re much better than any of the commercial G-F breads on sale!

12. They are so easy to make and taste delicious.

13. I think the independent producers should be supported, especially those from the UK. There is a lot of marketing from the supermarkets about local ‘fresh’ producers why not the ambient as well. By developing their GF range they are not only showing the consumers that they are providing choice not just trying to make money. Supermarkets will always stock products to bring shoppers in like cheap alcohol and chocolate why not start doing the same with healthier products.

14. We should have a variety of choice of GF products that are accessible so that u do not have to wait for internet orders to arrive and for those who do not have internet access it gives a selection.

15. Gluten free buyers need a choice too as to where to buy from

16. Isabel’s products are of a better quality and taste better than for example Sainsbury’s own GF products. I tend to shop in Waitrose which does sell Isabel’s products. It would be good to see them in a bigger range of supermarkets.

17. We need more choice and cheaper deals

18. Isabel’s Cheesebreads and pizza bases are delicious, easy to make, gluten free products that can be enjoyed by everyone not just those on a gluten free diet.

19. Both Isabel’s Dough balls and Pizza bases are top quality GF products…usability, ingredients, flavour and texture…a rare treat for all coeliacs and people with restricted diets…

20. These are the only ‘edible’ gluten free pizza bases I have come across since my daughter was diagnosed with coeliac disease & the whole family can enjoy them

21. My daughter, a coeliac, absolutely loves the dough balls and the pizza base. I think people with special dietary requirements make very loyal customers, if we find a shop that stocks the products we need we will keep coming back.

22. I love the products. With my allergies products like the pizza base and dough balls mean that I can live a normal life like my peers. I spent so many years unable to eat these items and now due to Isabel’s naturally free from I can now have these foods. I’d love to see them in more places. I hope to see them in more places soon. Thanks

23. They are a delicious gluten free food that can be enjoyed by all the family not just the coeliacs which has to be good for the person in charge of food preparation

24. It is difficult enough living with a food intolerance/allergy, and sometimes is not assisted by supermarkets only stocking restricted brands.

25. I believe and hope to see one day that ALL major supermarket chains stock pretty much all brands available, sometimes you have to visit various retailers in order to buy what foods you like.

26. I’m Portuguese and my wife is Brazilian when she makes those cheese breads I find hard to stop eating. THEY ARE DELICIUOSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

27. The product doesn’t require rising, is easy to make, can be frozen and used straight to oven, so there is no waste. +++++

28. Both cheesebreads and pizza mixes are delicious. They contain pure ingredients and no E numbers.

29. As a health care worker I know how important it is to be able to access foods suitable for your dietary requirements, diabetic products are stocked so why not a wider range of GF products?

30. More choice, supporting local producers, healthier options, not every supermarket selling the same boring brands.

31. Ordinary pizzas are poisonous to Coeliacs, so eating a pizza which doesn’t poison us is very pleasurable.

32. Pizza can also be a healthy convenience food as it comprises bread, tomato, cheese and possibly meat and vegetables or other fruit such as pineapple.

33. Isabel’s pizza base mix is one of the best naturally gluten-free products available. I’ll quite often go to Waitrose just to pick it up – it’s that central to this Coeliac’s weekly menu!

34. To give us more variety and not exclude us.

35. Simply because the pizza base mix is the best gluten free pizza base available, far outstripping all the precooked bases

36. Gives coeliacs a large selection to buy from not all coeliacs want to eat supermarkets own brand! Plus most pizza bases taste like card board!

37. They taste good and demand for gluten/wheat free products is increasing rapidly.

38. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE stock Brazilian flavours dough balls and pizza mix!!!!! I have been on a gluten and wheat free diet for about 4 years now and these are EASILY the most tasty product I have tasted! I first tried them at a gluten free food fair (or freak fair as my husband kindly calls them) and go back every year to stock up on as many boxes as I can carry which have to last me until the following year. Unfortunately, the fair is in February and its September now, I have run out and as I can’t get them online without paying a massive postal charge, I’m going to be without 😦

39. If I could get them from our local supermarket I would be overjoyed! It’s not just me that loves them, my hubby and toddler son love them too, DESPITE the fact that they are GF, which can’t be said about any other GF foods that I can get!

40. I hope you can stock these fab products soon! Thank you xxx

41. There are a growing number of people being diagnosed with coeliac disease and it should be easy for them to buy food that they can eat without being ill. I regularly shop at all the supermarkets because it is impossible to buy everything we need from just one. If one of them started to stock a wider range of GF food it would save me time as I would be able to buy everything I need under one roof.

42. Because there isn’t much of a ‘normal range’ out, most GF products do not taste like real food, such as Cornish slices…bleugh!!!!! we need to see more things like chicken nuggets and one person meals-shepherds pies etc!!!!

43. We are limited enough in what we can buy in the supermarkets week in, week out. So why then limit us to the brands we can but amongst the few products you offer? It is best to give us a variety of brands as well as products as it keeps our diet more interesting and will keep us coming back for more!

44. To give more coeliacs a wider range of products, which at many times is fairly limited.

45. The brands I see on the shelves are the same GF manufacturers every time. Rite Diet and GF Supplies. Dr Schar used to be available but has withdrawn their excellent products from sale in the UK. Coeliacs desperately need a wider choice of suppliers than these two. Please help give us a better choice.

46. It would be great for you to stock this item and give more availability we need as much choice as possible and being in a limited shelf space as it is this can be a struggle though with the systems in place on supermarkets, and supermarkets knowing exactly how many items are on the shelf at the one time why not make the shelf space smaller but stacked more regularly allowing more fresh items displayed and more choice giving but still in the same space? As somebody who buys GF in supermarkets and will continue to even if this is not sold this item would be one more item i would buy as at the moment I don’t know of any good GF pizza mix until now.

47. It would be great to have a wider choice of Gluten Free products available in as many places as possible. There is often very little choice available.

48. because the mixes are very tasty and easy to use for people on the sometimes restrictive gluten free diet – the easiest and best value GF pizza mix I have found having had Coeliac Disease for the past 17 years.

49. To give us more choice, like everyone else has!

50. Isabel’s products are the best GF mixes I have tried. The pizza is astounding and I really can’t tell that it is GF. There is no pizza product that comes anywhere near and it is such a shame it is not stocked by all the supermarkets. I have even used the mixes to make bread and Yorkshire puddings.

51. Speed and ease of preparation and use of products within the range brilliant do as they say on the carton/box, and the flavours and textures gorgeous, can not get enough of them :o) , but need more places asap I can buy them from!!!

52. I think everyone, small and large suppliers should have a shot! Why choose just the ‘big’ companies – smaller companies can make food just as good – People with coeliac deserve a much broader choice, after all, there is up to ten different varieties of pizza for people who can eat gluten, so why should there only be one choice on the shelves for us??? I think they deserve a break and let us decide!

53. Many of the products currently available are poor quality. The products which are good quality are hard to come by and rarely stocked even by the bigger supermarkets close to me. It’s time we had the same choice as other customers

54. These products are fantastic! I just wish that a supermarket other than Waitrose sold them!

55. These products are some of the best available. I have to travel over 40 miles to Waitrose at the moment, whereas I have a Sainsbury’s less than 10 minutes away.

56. Your pizza base mix is fantastic.

57. I love your cheesebreads, good luck!

58. Although its good that the big supermarkets are offering more of own brand Free From we DON’T want it to be at the expense of the little guys who make wonderful products as well!!!

59. On a personal level I like these products, generally though it can only benefit the producer the store and the buyer if the product is on the supermarket shelf.

60. excellent standard, easy to use, gluten free, tasty & healthy food, excellent price for GF products. All supermarkets need to take a wider approach to supplying a more diverse & appetising selection of GF products. I originally buy in local Brazilian supermarket but it would be great for all to be able to buy these lovely GF products.

The holy grail of gluten free pizzas. Bon appetito belo!

Just like a Mama used to make!

A few Italian restaurants have a real dedication to provide delicious Italian food no matter what. And their passion for great pizza has led them to tackle the problem of finding the perfect gluten-free pizza. “They tried the mixes and frozen bases already on the market, but none came up to scratch.”

Isabel’s Naturally Free From developed a thin-crust Neapolitan style pizza base that people genuinely cannot believe it is gluten-free. Salvo’s of Leeds, Atomic Pizzas in Oxford and The VesuviO in Bedfordshire are proud to be gluten-free pioneers, and now these leading Italian restaurants can offer their costumers who can’t tolerate gluten – the holy grail of a chewy, crispy crust that tastes like pizza should.

Isabel’s pizza base mix is also available for consumers to buy to prepare it at home from Ocado and  selected Asda stores.

If you can’t tolerate gluten or just trying to avoid it, Isabel’s is the natural option for you.

Try talking to your local restaurant and asking them to take up the Gluten-Free Challenge by committing to a gluten-free menu…

Chocolate and summer fruits tartlets

Not only pretty, but delicious!

These small tartlets are beautiful and delicious, and also very easy to make. They will disappear in minutes I’m sure!

The pastry was light and not fatty… just have plenty of cornflour handy to help prevent the dough sticking to your finger. Apart from that the dough was pretty easy to handle, I made the tartlets in no time at all.

To make 12 tartlets you’ll need:

250g of Jusu’s sweet pastry (if you are gluten intolerant used puff pastry instead)

100g of milk chocolate or (your favourite chocolate) broken into pieces

100g of single cream

2 large eggs

50g caster sugar

250g summer fruits (I’ve used raspberries)

Icing sugar to dust

You’ll also need:

12 hole tartlet baking tray

Biscuit cutter roughly the same diameter as the tartlets

Preheat the oven to 180 C (Gas mark 4)

Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface using cornflour. Take small pieces of the dough and make small balls of approx. 30mm diameter each piece, you want to make 12 of these.

Using your thumbs gently flatten the little balls into small circles of about half a

centimetre deep. Add the little tartlets to baking tray and shape the dough around.

Use the biscuit cutter to trim any excess dough around the top of each cavity.

Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan with gently

simmering water, make sure that the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water.

Stir the chocolate with a wooden spoon until melted. Take it off the heat and let it cool down.

Beat the eggs in a bowl with a whisk until well mixed, and then add the cream and sugar and mix again.

Carefully fill the tartlets with the chocolate mixture using a small ladle or a spoon. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until the pastry has risen and is of a light golden colour. Let it cool.

Remove the tartlets from the baking tray. Place then into cup cakes, add 3-4 summer fruits on top of each tartlet and dust with icing sugar.

Mother-in-law’s eyes

Scrumptious...

You’ll need:

Ingredients

1 can (395g) sweetened condensed milk

125g of grated coconut

1 Tbsp soft butter

30 ready to eat seedless vanilla prunes or normal ready to eat prunes.

Use granulated sugar to decorate.

To prepare:

1 Place the condensed milk, grated coconut and butter on a non-stick sauce pan over medium-low heat and stir vigorously all the ingredients.

2 Cook the mixture until it thickens about 10 to 12 minutes, enough to show the pan bottom during stirring. The consistence will be similar of that of a choux pastry, not too soft.

3 Pour the mixture into a greased dish and let it cool to room temperature. While the mixture is cooling down, make an opening in prunes length ways, like a little boats almost.

4 After the mixture is ready to be handled, grease your hands with butter and take small amounts of the mixture with a teaspoon and make 1 inch balls, open the prunes and place the little ball inside shaping it length ways rough like an eye.

5 To finish roll the sweets over granulated sugar white part only not the fruit, place it in a mini cup cake as demonstrate in the picture.

Makes approximately 30 sweets

Coconut hearts

These will make lovely gifts...

You’ll need:

Ingredients

500g granulated sugar

200ml of water

2 coconuts

4 cloves and 1 cinnamon stick (optional)

To prepare

Grate the coconuts with a hand grater – do not use blender or a food processor. Also desiccated coconut will not taste the same as freshly grated coconuts.

In a large saucepan, combine the water, sugar, cloves and cinnamon.

Boil for approximately 20 minutes or until you get a thick syrup. Use a sugar thermometer or drop a full teaspoon of syrup in a glass with water in order to know if the syrup has boiled enough.

The syrup should become a soft sweet. Remove the clove and cinnamon from the syrup at this point.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and combine the grated coconut and mix well with a wood spoon.

Return the saucepan to heat and cook additional 5 minutes.

Use a large spoon to drop amounts of the mixture into heart shaped moulds on a buttered baking sheet.

Let them cool and serve.

Finely grated coconut...

Tips: This is a recipe for white coconut sweet. Substitute the white granulate sugar for brown sugar to make a darker coconut sweet with a delicious caramel flavour and lovely brown colour.

Caramel Pudding

Ta-ta!

 

Youll need:

1 can (397g) condensed milk
475 ml full cream milk
3 large eggs
1 vanilla pod or 4-5 drops of vanilla essence

For the caramel

60g caster (fine) sugar

 

To prepare:

1. Pre-heat the oven 180⁰C (350⁰F/Gas 4).

2. Add the sugar for the caramel, into a 9″ Silverwood Savarin mould (a mould with a hole in the middle) and heat low to medium fire until it dissolves and starts to caramelise. Tip the mould from side to side as the sugar cooks to keep the colouring even. Take care not to burn the sugar (or yourself), remove the mould from the heat and carefully add a tablespoon of water and set aside until needed.

3. Using a blender mix eggs, condensed milk, milk and vanilla until all the ingredients are well mixed together.
4. Pour the mix into the mould over the caramelised sugar and place in a roasting tray filled with water in ban-marie. Pour enough water into the tray to come halfway up the sides of the mould. Cook in ban-marie for approx. 45 minutes or until firm.

6. Allow to cool down before unmould. Loosen the edges of the pudding from the mould with a wet knife, place a plate on top of the mould hold it firmly and turn it upside down, rest the plate on the worktop and give a tap on the mould to help realise the pudding. Serve it cold.

This is a great recipe, delicious and really easy to prepare, the more times you make the easier it gets. Use fresh summer fruits to decorate.

New flavours to savour

Discover new products....

Gluten free food fairs, should you get the chance to go to one, are well worth the trip. Even after 11 years, we still find new products.

We went across country, to Teesside, to a food fair we’d not been to before, because coeliac daughter has been asking for a chance to go to one for a while now. They don’t come up very often, and we usually have to travel.

This food fair, organised by the Cleveland Coeliac Group, was great. Not huge  probably about 15 suppliers of gluten free products, together with a few other stalls  but very well organised. The small coffee bar was stocked with home made gluten free scones (fruit or cheese), and they’d arranged a colouring table for the children who weren’t wandering around tasting all the samples.

My daughter tasted a lot of different things. Not all  she couldn’t bring herself to taste the fish cakes, and she’d run out of enthusiasm for cake after a while  but we discovered new things, which is what we went for. Plus, as always, the wonderful thing about these events is that she can eat anything in the room without worrying!

We tried lots of free samples, were given some samples to take away, and bought rather more things than I’d been planning to.

The Dough balls  mix from Isabel’s Naturally Free From (Brazilian Flavours),

Easy-to-prepare and convenient...

which makes up into delicious light cheese breads, they are naturally gluten free. Daughter went back several times to sample more of these!

I just love finding new things that my daughter actively enjoys eating, rather than just eating because she needs to eat.

I tried the Brazilian Flavours pizza base mix for the first time last week. It actually made a thin and crispy base that was really easy to roll out the best gluten free pizza I’ve tasted!

My kids love the cheesebreads too and the younger 2 aren’t coeliac so that is definitely a good recommendation as it is often difficult to get anything gluten free past their lips!

Lucy Posted

Hi Helen, I think the cheesebreads are yummy too. We haven’t tried the pizza base yet. Will you be stocking these?

Helen Pengelly Posted

Hi Lucy,

Yes we already do stock the pizza base mix. I am just off to make some now for my hungry 19 year old!

Lemony pudding

Yummy...

This lip smacking lemony dessert will add a happy ending to any dinner as well as filling your kitchen with lovely aromas. Very easy to prepare too! If you are not gluten intolerant use plain flour instead, although the potato flour gives this dessert an even more lighter texture.

To make this delicious pudding you’ll need:

50g soften lightly salted butter

285g light brown sugar

3 eggs separated

3 Tbsp potato flour (starch)

145ml single cream

230ml whole milk

65ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

A medium oven proof baking dish

Pre heat the oven 180C (Gas Mark 4)

Place the butter, sugar and potato flour in a food processor and process for approx. 10 seconds until all mixed well together (you could this with the hand mixer too using the lower speed setting). Add the eggs yolks to the mixture and process for a few seconds more.

With the motor running add the cream and then milk in a slow stream. Scrape the sides of the bowl of the processor with a spatula so that the mixture is lump free. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl.

Beat the egg whites until firm – then fold them into the mixture using a large metal spoon. Then quickly add the lemon juice and fold into the mixture gently.

Out of the oven...

Place the mixture into the baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden on the top.

Let the pudding rest for about 10-15 minutes and dust with the icing sugar before serving.

1 Place the condensed milk, grated coconut and butter on a non-stick sauce pan over medium-low heat and  stir vigorously all the ingredients.

2 Cook the mixture until it thickens about 10 to 12 minutes, enough to show the pan bottom during stirring. The consistence will be similar of that of a soux pastry, not too soft.

3 Pour the mixture in a greased dish and let it cool to room temperature. After the mixture has cool down, grease your hands with butter and take small amounts of the mixture with a teaspoon and make 1 ½ inch balls.

4 To finish roll the sweets over granulated sugar, place it in a mini cup cake and decorate.

Makes about 30 sweets

Bel’s tip – Traditionally  stick’s of clove  are used to decorate, but although beautiful not everyone likes the flavour, you could use other cake decorating ingredient like the in the main picture.

Gluten & wheat free pasta dough – tagliatelle…

 

Freshly made pasta with Isabel's...

 For the pasta dough you’ll need:

250g Isabel’s pizza mix

1 medium egg

4 medium egg yolks

2 Tbsp olive oil

How to prepare

Put the flour in a mound on a clean surface or into bowl and make a well in the middle.

Add the whole egg, egg yolks and oil into the well. Using your fingers mix all the ingredients together gradually adding the water until it forms a dough. When the dough is complete, knead it for about 5 minutes with the heel of your hand so dough becomes really pliable.

If necessary dust the dough with cornflour to help prevent the dough sticking to the machine or the rolling pin. This dough does not require resting.

Divide the pasta dough, take one piece and roll through the pasta machine, starting on the widest setting. If don’t have a pasta machine use the rolling pin instead. The sheet of dough should be about 1.5 mm thick approx. Cut the dough into tagliatelle or linguine.

Lay the strands on a sheet of greaseproof paper or place over a metal coat-hanger to aerate them and prevent tangling.

To cook the pasta, bring a large pan of lightly salted water to boil with a few drops of olive oil.  Add the freshly cut pasta and cook for about 1 ½ minutes, until tender, but firm to the bite.
