Hopefully Aunt Bessies will begin now to stop adding wheat to all their chips, parsnips, etc - I doubt it, but there is no need to add wheat to veg. Crazy.

I believe they have had a complete re-think about all of their products so not only can we expect to see a lot of changes not only in sizes and prices but in the way products are produced.

That is interesting - thanks for letting me know. I wonder what has caused that? Less sales I imagine.

I used to be a huge fan of Aunt Bessies' range but just found that they were adding wheat to virtually every single product range. It seems a common trait amongst firms - M&S do it with lots of their frozen chips, McCains do it also, etc, etc - but Bessies seem to be the worst culprit.

It is, for me, akin to all those firms adding sugar to their products. There is no need to add wheat and, with growing awareness of the health consequences of modern wheat, I think we will see more and more companies begin to realise that it can sales.
Why is the wheat added in the first place? !
Same price at Sainsburys

I believe it is what makes the chips crispy in all those frozen crispy chips/fries products. Wheat is now common in all frozen chips/fries who claim to be crispy but you can still find non-crispy products without wheat - but they are in the minority alas.

Modern wheat?! Haha

You mean any wheat we've grown in the past 8,000 years?
Wheat maybe in there as wheat starch, to make the potatoes more crispy (looks like they've replaced that with rice starch now), or as a carrier for some of the spices. They've recently moved out of producing these products in the UK and now have a factory in Belgium
whats wrong with wheat covered chips, am i missing something?

Potatoes made into chips don't need to be covered with anything. Lets have more NATURAL products.

No I think they mean Genetically Modified Wheat only developed in modern times because it's cheaper to produce perhaps ?
If you wanted a natural potato product, just buy some potato seeds and grow your own. If you want a bag of frozen oven chips (frozen chips & ovens don't usually occur naturally in the wild), then this is a good offer.
