The new crumpets, which are free from gluten, wheat and milk join the brand’s existing free-from bakery range including farmhouse loaves, handcrafted artisan boules and cobs, rolls, wraps and sandwich thins.
Chris Hook, free-from director at Newburn Bakehouse, said: “At Warburtons, we’re well-known for our crumpets, so we set the bar high for our Newburn Bakehouse gluten-free crumpets. We’ve put all of our baking experience and knowledge into making delicious crumpets that our free-from customers can enjoy.”
Dave Mulvey, Newburn’s head baker, who had been leading the project to develop the crumpets, added: “ It has been 18 months since we started developing the recipe and after many days and weeks spent perfecting the product, we believe we’ve achieved a gluten-free crumpet that lives up to the Warburtons name.”
The Newburn Bakehouse by Warburtons crumpets are available in store and online in Morrisons, Ocado, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, and Waitrose.
