I had never heard of a Broghie until last November when the Sales Manager for the company making Broghies contacted me.
We had a bit of a chat about Coeliac Disease and Gluten Free food in general and I learned that there are two types of Broghies, one made with Wheat and one which is Corn based using only Gluten Free ingredients. At the same time I also learned that both types are made in the same premises but that the company is fully aware of the risk posed to Coeliacs by cross contamination and they take the necessary steps to minimise that risk.
About 16 years ago my wife was medically diagnosed as Coeliac – she has the Dermatitis Herpetiformis (DH) version and is very sensitive to Gluten. When I told her about Broghies she thought they were a great idea, bravely volunteered to try them and has been eating the Corn Broghies over the last couple of months with no ill effects whatsoever!
The Corn Broghies are made with gluten free ingredients and are a healthy alternative to bread, wraps, tortilla and crackers. They are less than 25 calories, Low Carb, Vegan, Keto friendly, no oil, low sodium, no fat, no preservatives and no additives.They stay fresh for 6 months and can be teamed up with all sorts of toppings making them very suitable for a healthy snack or a lunch break!
There may be a small risk from cross contamination to consider and you must make your own decision on whether or not to eat Corn Broghies but my wife and I think they are great! They are produced in Sligo and are widely available across Ireland and can also be bought online! www.broghies.com
