Bertrand Is Gluten-Free
Many people know it: stomach pain, bloating, diarrhea, or even headaches, after enjoying a meal that contains gluten. Being gluten-intolerant means that the folds of the stomach’s mucous membrane become inflamed; the body then can’t absorb enough of nutrients such as carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. The result: over time, the body becomes undernourished .
Due to increased requests for a gluten-free variety, we decided to adapt the formulas for version 2.5 and the vegan version 1.0, so that we can now offer them to you gluten-free.
This will also apply to subsequent versions. For an independent analysis of our product, we authorized the Intertek Institute in Bremen, which has many years’ experience as an international company in the field of food analysis. Intertek will be making inspection analyses at regular intervals, the results of which we will provide to you in our FAQ.
We have decided against advertising with the trademarked AOECS Seal, and against applying for AOECS certification. The costs of certification with world-wide distribution would have resulted in our having to raise our prices. That seems imprudent to us at this time, and we hope to win our customers’ trust through the regular release of the independent analysis results.
This analysis is accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025.
