Are your products gluten free? As we use Barley, which contains gluten, in our Black Pudding we cannot claim that our other products are gluten free. Having said that our Black Pudding is the last product made on any given day, and the factory is washed down afterwards because of this we would expect that the possibility of cross contamination from the barley would be infinitesimal. Many people who suffer from a gluten intolerance have eaten our Ham & Ham Products without suffering a reaction but much depends on the severity of a person’s particular tolerance level.
I have been buying your Grandmother Ham® for some time but when I purchased from a different store they sold me a product called Nona ham which they said was Grandmother Ham® is this true? No this is not true; by doing so they are “passing off” which is actually the practise of using a registered trade mark to sell someone else’s product in order to gain sales which is misleading and deceptive conduct; by doing so they are breaking the law as “Grandmother Ham®” is a registered trade mark of Barkly Smokehouse. This also applies to our product “Bomba Ham®”.
