Shop for Gluten-Free Products at Ryan's Grocery

Opened just a few months ago at Binjai Park, Ryan's Grocery offers one of the moost extensive gluten-free product range in Singapore, many of which are sourced from Western Australia. In fact, 99% of the store is gluten-free. Expect oils, cookies, flours, condiments, pasta, sauces, fresh vegetables, free-range meats, and sausages among other goodies. Speaking of sausages, check out the ones here which are all made in-house, gluten-free, have natural casings, and come in flavours such as Cranberry & Chestnut Pork Sausages, and Lemon & Oregano Lamb Sausages. They even have Farmhouse Sausages which are free from preservatives, nitrates and sulphates!

Ryan's Grocery exclusively imports the whole carcass of Blackwood Valley's organic grass-fed Angus cows from Western Australia and portions it into the different cuts such as sirloin, ribeye, brisket etc in their on-site butchery. Asian cuts such as shabu shabu and sukiyaki are also available.  

I sampled the organic grass-fed Blackwood Valley Beef which was prepared as a roast, and like its clean flavour. Although my experience with grass-fed beef tends to lean towards them being intensely beefy, this one was rather mild and gentle in taste. On the piggy side of things, I absolutely loved the Linley Valley Free-Range Pork! Its flavour was beautifully rounded, balanced and free from the unpleasant "porky taste" some people dislike when it comes to pork.

Ayam brand might be familiar here but have you seen their array of Asian sauces? I haven't. And they are all gluten-free too!

Ryan's Grocery also carries an exclusive range of gourmet products made by small batch producers. An example is the Latasha's Kitchen range of preservative-free and gluten-free chutneys, relishes and pastes. Use the brand's Green Chimichurri to spice up a salad dressing or as a handy marinate for meats when whipping up a home-cooked feast this festive season.

Honey fans should try the Jarrah Honey under the Colmena brand. Known for its antibacterial properties and high antioxidant content, Jarrah honey boasts a rich caramelised flavour and is unique to Western Australia. And unlike Manuka honey, there is apparently no need to avoid using metal spoons. Moohehe.

By the way, wondering why the focus on gluten-free products here? Well, the husband and wife team, Sebastian and Wendy Chia, behind Ryan's Grocery has a son (Ryan!) who is intolerant to gluten, dairy, nuts, soy, egg and yeast. Through Ryan's Grocery, they aim to support the community of people with dietary challenges and intolerances. They also hope to promote good eating with their range of organic and free-range products.

Thank you, Ryan's Grocery and Food News PR for the invitation to the store.
