The Crossed Grain logo is a symbol nationally and internationally identified by those who need to follow a gluten free diet.
The logo gives consumers a quick reference point when shopping and faced with the uncertainty of hidden gluten in a product without the need to read the nutritional information panel.
By carrying the crossed grain logo, consumers can be assured that products are tested and certified to be gluten free, therefore ensuring there are choices on the shelves and in restaurants for everyone.
Lee Kum Kee is working with Coeliac New Zealand to have more of its range certified gluten free in the coming months.
