8. Are your products Halal certified?
We don't have certification for all our products as it depends on specific customer requirements.
9. Are your products Kosher?
Patak's products are not certified as Kosher.
10. Why have you removed the gluten free claim from your Pappadums?
Lentil flour, with which our pappadums are made, does not contain gluten. However, we are increasingly having to purchase lentil flour from regions where wheat is also grown. As a result of this we could not guarantee in the future that an on-pack "gluten free" statement could be robustly substantiated.
We work extremely hard to ensure our products are safe and for that reason we have taken the "gluten free" statement off the packaging. We have not included a "may contain gluten" statement on our pappadum packaging as the maximum dose of gluten protein in a serving of two pappadums is well below the normal reaction trigger level.
We can confirm that all our Patak’s pappadums currently for sale in supermarkets are correctly labelled – including those that state they are "gluten free".
11. Why did you change the Tandoori Marinade Paste recipe?
We are constantly reviewing our recipes and wanted to remove the artificial colours and replace with natural colours.
The colour of the product has changed because the artificial colours have been removed.
The new recipe is still suitable for Vegans and is Gluten Free. The allergens have not been impacted.
