Product Details

Buontempo have been manufacturing gluten free pasta in Australia for over 20 years. All of our gluten free pastas are made in Australia to strict Australian standards, so you can trust it will suit your dietary needs. Buontempo Gluten Free Pasta is the most affordable Australian made gluten free pasta on the market, meaning your family can enjoy more, for less!

The Buontempo range of pastas have been specifically developed for the general consumer looking to expand their tastes beyond that of mainstream products. A lighter alternative, this pasta has the added benefit of being wheat and gluten free, making it suitable for coeliacs

Coeliac Disease is a medical condition of an intolerance to gluten in the diet. Gluten is the protein component of wheat, rye, barley, and possibly oats, and is found in derivatives of these including triticale and malt. In people with Coeliac disease, gluten damages the lining of the small intestine (villi) causing a flattening effect that dramatically decreases the ability to absorb nutrients from food.

Many of the symptoms of Coeliac disease relate to this malabsorption. Some common symptoms can include:
Diarrhoea or constipation, or a combination of both.
Nutritional deficiencies including iron, folate, vitamin B12 and zinc
  • Fatigue, weakness, lethargy
  • Weight loss
  • Flatulence
  • Abdominal distension / bloating
  • Cramping
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Reflux (heartburn)

If you have any of the above symptoms and/or notice that you feel better when you eat less wheat, you would benefit from being investigated for Coeliac disease. Talk to your doctor or gastroenterologist for more information. It is recommended you do not commence a gluten free diet until the diagnosis of Coeliac disease is confirmed.
