Chelsea icing sugar is gluten free

DSC_0002_5320

Chelsea icing sugar (powdered sugar) has always been gluten free but I notice the new packaging clearly labels it as gluten free.  Great idea.

Be careful with brands of icing sugar, as starch is often added to the powdered sugar to keep it free from lumps. Some brands are mixed with tapioca starch and some icing sugars are mixed with wheat starch.

Always check the ingredients if it is not labelled as gluten free.

    Here in Australia there are 2 types of icing sugar. Icing Mixture which is mixed with a starch to keep it lump free and Pure Icing Sugar which must of course have nothing other than powdered sugar or they cannot keep the name. Which means we simply buy the pure and there is no issue. :)
