DROSSA Direct - About Us

DROSSA – Direct

“It’s the unexpected gluten in products that causes the biggest problem”, and “...the taste of the gluten free option is like cardboard” were comments which we frequently heard when Drossa was founded more than ten years ago.  Since then, we’ve eaten countless samples of gluten free foods in our search for products which, in our various test panels' opinions, tasted good – not just to those who need to eat gluten free, but would be delicious for the whole family.

Over the years, many of our products have won Great Taste Awards, Free From Awards or have received very favourable reviews in the specialist press – in 2012 we were the outright WINNER of the Free From Foods Awards 2012 Pasta & Pizza Category with Farabella's ACINI DI PEPE / Pasta Grains which can be used as an excellent gluten free couscous alternative.  Farabella's Acini di Pepe/Pasta Grains can be used to make refreshing Tabbouleh, delicious couscous type salads, and used as a gluten free alternative for couscous itself with the addition of tasty and nutritious Tagines.  In 2013, Mum’s Mill Bread Mix received a Free From Award, in 2015 Farabella’s Fresh (Stabilised) Gluten Free Pasta Orechiette received a Free From Award, Farabella's Strozzapreti Fresh (stabilised) Gluten Free Pasta also received a Free From Award in 2016, and in 2017 Finax’s Gluten Free Farmhouse Bread Mix received a Great Taste Award.  

Drossa offers quality Gluten Free pastas from Italy under the Farabella,  BiAlimenta and Lori brand labels,and fabulous, easy-to-use and versatile Gnocchi – a real ‘must’ for the store cupboard. This vacuum packed product has a long shelf life and needs no refrigeration (if kept in its original pack, unopened), and it takes approximately just two minutes to cook once you put the gnocchi into boiling water! 

Look out for our range of flours which are easy to use for breadmaking (by hand in a conventional oven or in a breadmaker),or to make pastry, biscuits, and cakes. Try Award Winning mixes such as Finax GF Oatbread Mix, Finax GF Farmouse Bread Mix, or Mum’s Mill Easy Bread Mix GF.

Over the past year we have added to our Organic gluten free range.  Look out for many gluten free baking ingredients including Coconut Flour, Coconut Sugar, Cocoa Powder, Psyllium and Fribrex.

Banish Breakfast Bores!  There are lots of toppings available to mix with yogurt, eat with home made labneh, or include with your baking, pancake making, or give a tasty lift to simple fairy cakes or muffins.

Just because it's gluten free doesn't mean it's taste free !
