Feel Free To Devour Our Donuts! Feel Free For Gluten Free Launches UK's First Gluten & Wheat Free Frozen Donuts

Friday 5 September, 2014
Coeliacs and other gluten-avoiders across the UK are licking their lips in anticipation at the UK's first gluten & wheat free frozen donuts! Gluten and wheat free brand Feel Free for Gluten Free are launching their frozen donuts next week, following fantastic feedback from samplings at July's Allergy & Free From Show in London. Sally Allister, Managing Director of Feel Free for Gluten Free, said: “I'm thrilled to be launching the UK's first readily available gluten and wheat free donuts! “When we sampled our donuts at the Allergy Show, the response was staggering. We knew we had a good product and felt confident people would like it, but weren't prepared for the ecstasy some coeliacs felt at tasting their first donut in years. “Donuts are a bakery product that many people on a gluten or wheat free diet have previously had to go without. With donuts in the top three of core bakery products, it's not fair that they should miss out and I'm delighted that we are the first to launch a free from equivalent. “Feedback from the Allergy Show was that consumers would prefer to buy the donuts frozen. We agreed – our donuts can be kept in the freezer and thawed one by one whenever it's time for an indulgent treat, or when the rest of the family are having regular donuts. They're convenient and mean that the coeliac or gluten free eater in the family doesn't have to miss out. “The donuts are made to my own recipe which uses potato and rice starch. The result is a donut like those on offer at fun fairs or at seaside resorts – that's what visitors to the Allergy Show told us anyway.” Feel Free For Gluten Free's new donuts are sugared ring donuts and have four to a pack. They are sold frozen and can be kept in the freezer for up to six months. The donuts will be available to order from Monday 8 September from Feel Free For Gluten Free's online shop www.glutenfree-direct.co.uk which delivers to UK mainland addresses. A pack of four donuts costs £3.99. Feel Free For Gluten Free are also working on getting retail listings for their donuts. To help launch their gluten & wheat free donuts, the brand is running a Donut Face competition across its social media profiles and on email. They are asking their followers, likers and customers to share photos of themselves getting excited about the donut launch – the person with the best 'Donut Face' will win a dozen donuts. Share your excitable and expressive Donut Face photos by: Posting them on the Feel Free For Gluten Free Facebook page Tweeting them to @FeelFreeGF and using the hashtag #FeelFreeDonutFace Sharing them with FEELFREE on Pinterest using the hashtag #FeelFreeDonutFace Sharing them with FeelFreeFoods on Instagram using the hashtag #FeelFreeDonutFace Emailing them to [email protected] . Feel Free For Gluten Free are also supplying their frozen donuts to food service customers. Packs of 12 individually wrapped donuts give restaurants, cafés, delis and other eating places a free from sweet bakery alternative. Sally Allister added: “As a coeliac myself, I know that people on a gluten and wheat free diet don't have any difficulty finding chocolate brownies while out and about – they're everywhere! As tasty as they are, it's great that our donuts now give food service customers another option to add to their gluten free menus.” To find out more about Feel Free for Gluten Free's new frozen donuts, visit their website www.feelfreefoods.co.uk or call the Feel Free team on 08081 290 261. -ends- About Feel Free for Gluten Free Feel Free for Gluten Free is the main brand of Yorkshire based Gluten Free Foods (York) Ltd.

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations.

As they do so, IT professionals are also embr...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that pro...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
Technology has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. From onion architectures to APIs to microservices to cloud and containers, the technology artifacts shipped by teams has changed. And that's not all - roles have changed too. Functional silos have been replaced by cross-functional teams, the skill sets people need to have has been redefined and the tools and approaches for how software is developed and delivered has transformed. When we move from highly defined rigid roles and systems to ...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...

Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project.

However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex ...
If you are part of the cloud development community, you certainly know about “serverless computing,” almost a misnomer. Because it implies there are no servers which is untrue. However the servers are hidden from the developers. This model eliminates operational complexity and increases developer productivity. We came from monolithic computing to client-server to services to microservices to the serverless model. In other words, our systems have slowly “dissolved” from monolithic to function-...
