Unilever, Englewood Cliffs, N.J., enhanced its Breyers brand of ice cream to now offer 36 gluten-free varieties. After undergoing a gluten-free validation process, these varieties will feature a "gluten-free" claim, consistent with the FDA's rule on gluten-free labeling. Plus, a gluten-free logo will appear on the packaging on such flavors as Natural Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Mint Chocolate Chip, certain Breyers Blasts! flavors, Cherry Vanilla, Butter Pecan and Fat-Free Chocolate and Strawberry, among others.
"As a brand known for offering frozen treats for the entire family, we're happy to announce 36 of our popular Breyers varieties are now labeled gluten free," says Nick Soukas, director of ice cream. "Now, people following a gluten-free diet can be sure that the flavors they know and love are compatible with their dietary needs."
