The gluten-free and Celiac disease communities just got a second hit of good news to cap off 2020. In addition to gluten-free OREOs launching at the start of next year, gluten-free Kraft Mac & Cheese is now available in stores nationwide.
Kraft made the pasta using brown rice and corn, and tailored the blend to meet the FDA's standards for gluten-free. This means that the ingredients used to make the mac and cheese do not come from gluten-containing grains (ie. wheat), or are processed to remove gluten to the point where there is less than 20 parts per million of gluten in the final cheesy pasta.
The mac also retains the original's consistency and cheesy flavor, meaning that gluten-free consumers should be getting a comparable experience to those who've been eating Kraft's mac for years.
With two of the world's most ubiquitous brands moving to add gluten-free versions of their signature products, accessibility to these types of foods just became a whole lot easier.
