What are gluten-free coated fries?

Gluten-free coated fries are potato chips that undergo a process where an outer coating is applied to enhance their crispiness when fried, air-fried, or oven-baked.

While potatoes themselves are naturally gluten-free, the term “gluten-free” refers to the absence of gluten-containing ingredients in the additional coatings used.

Unlike some manufacturers who may use wheat flour or similar ingredients to achieve crispiness, our gluten-free coated fries are crafted without any gluten-containing components.

Instead, we utilize alternative ingredients to achieve the desired extra crispy texture without compromising on dietary preferences or restrictions. This ensures that individuals with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease can enjoy our delicious coated fries without concerns.

Renowned for its gluten-free properties, tapioca finds widespread use as a wheat flour alternative in diverse culinary creations. From serving as a binding agent in gluten-free burgers to enriching bread and flatbread recipes, both home cooks and professionals rely on tapioca starch for its adaptability and dietary inclusivity.
