"How can your stock pots be labelled as gluten free when they mention barley in their ingredients?

All our products are labelled in line with strict regulations - including rules that apply to the declaration of allergens and separate rules covering the conditions that need to be met before a product can be labelled 'gluten free'.

Because barley is an allergen the regulations say it must be declared when it is present in the product either as an ingredient, such as barley malt extract, or because it is associated with an ingredient such as yeast extract, where the yeast is obtained from brewing. This means we have to declare the barley on the label, even when the amount of gluten it contains is insignificant.

Separately, all our products which are labelled as gluten free are tested to ensure they meet the legal requirement of having 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten or less, which all our stock pots do. This applies to the product as sold, and of course it is then diluted even further when the stock pot is made up with water or added to a meal.

We're pleased to say all our OXO Stock Pots carry the ‘Crossed Grain’ symbol - showing they are registered as a gluten free product with Coeliac UK - and you may find this section of their website useful https://www.coeliac.org.uk/blog/barley-malt-vinegar-and-barley-malt-extract/

We hope this information gives you the reassurance you need to carry on enjoying our products."
