BFree (Be Wheat and Gluten Free have a huge range of products for us that love to take a dietary choice, or have to be free of certain ingredients such as Gluten and Dairy.
We’ve sat and tasted the yummy BFree Sweet Potato Wraps, – the texture is interesting as it’s something (as a usual non-gluten free eater) I’ve not really come across, yet they’re sweet potato and anything made with this will pass my palate quicker than Lewis Hamilton! Plus despite thinking the texture is strange to me… they’re wonderful, tasty and provide a fantastic alternative to gluten options at lunch!
We also got our hands on the BFree Pitta Breads, which are exactly alike any other pitta minus the gluten and wheat! Bonus!
