Edinburgh-based Nairn’s has been championing gluten-free products for over a decade, and with each latest innovation they prove why they are the UK’s number one producer of oatcakes and one of the UK’s most popular gluten-free brands.

A recent survey revealed that 21.47% of people did not know that two Oatcakes have double the fibre of a slice of white bread and over 30% of respondents did not know that an Oatcake is less than 50 calories.

Lower in sugar and calories

It’s true, Nairn’s know a thing or two about oats (they’ve been baking with them since 1896), but they are also the UK leaders in lower sugar biscuits too.  Action on Sugar’s latest report[1] revealed Nairn’s sweet biscuit ranges had the lowest sugar per 100g and the second lowest calories per 100g.  The new Nairn’s Gluten Free Oaties are no different, and contain an impressive 45% less sugar than the average gluten-free sweet biscuit[2].  They’re also high in fibre and only 48 calories per biscuit.

What’s more, Nairn’s low sugar message exceeds just biscuits and continues on into their flapjack-style snacks, Oat Bars. They contain 40% less sugar than the average fruit or cereal bar, with no compromise on taste; and they’re vegan-friendly too.

Their newest product: the new Oats, Apple & Cinnamon Chunky Biscuit Breaks are no exception to the rule, with an impressive 50% less sugar than the average gluten free sweet biscuit!  If that wasn’t enough, they’re also high in fibre and only 63 calories per biscuit.

The power of oats

For centuries, wholegrain oats have been seen as a rich source of vitamins, minerals and nutrients, and contain complex carbohydrates that give a natural and wholesome boost. The gluten-free range is perfect for coeliacs, or those who simply choose to follow a gluten-free lifestyle, all of them equally moreish you wouldn’t even know they were gluten-free!
