Gluten- and wheat-free brand Dietary Specials (DS gluten-free) has launched a new appetiser, Breadsticks. The gluten-free product will be available in 67 Asda stores nationwide and is aimed at capitalising on the growing free-from crackers and savoury biscuit sector.

"With market data showing that there is a year-on-year increase in sales of savoury snacks, we are confident this new listing will further help to meet consumer demand," said Emma Herring, retail brand manager at Dr Schär UK. "Our research shows that gluten- and wheat-free shoppers have a desire to cook and eat normally and this dinner party appetiser will really fill a gap in the current gluten- and wheat-free range."
