Introducing Semper, the leading Nordic gluten-free brand

At Lavida our aim is to bring you gluten-free products of the best quality and taste from around the world. Semper has been the number 1 gluten-free brand in Sweden for over 20 years.
Their success centres on a unique knowledge of gluten-free products and the use of traditional Swedish methods of manufacture for their signature knäckebröd (crispbread). They produce a diverse range of high quality gluten-free foods, from crispbread to artisan linguine and tasty sweet treats (our personal favourite being their very moreish mint chocolate wafers!) All are gluten-free and suitable for Coeliacs.

The range

Semper’s Linseed Crispbreads are delicately flavoured and deliciously thin. They are a very good source of fibre (containing 9.1g per 100g) and made with 10% linseed.

Semper’s delicious Rosemary and Salt Crispbreads are made with gluten-free oats. These crispbreads were commended in the ‘Free From Food Awards 2014′ – the independent judges said they were a ‘Lovely rosemary flavoured crunchy crisp bread.’ ‘A great base for cheese – tangy and crisp.’.

Other tasty savoury gluten-free treats from Semper include their Poppy Seed Crackers and Chilli & Lemon Hummus Chips. The hummus chips are an innovative product made from 45% chickpea flour and cooked in rapeseed oil. They are the perfect nutritious gluten-free and lactose-free snack suitable for Coeliacs.

Semper’s range also includes an organic gluten-free artisan linguine, made in Italy using only two ingredients – 100% brown rice flour and the water from the hills of Tuscany! A uniquely rough textured pasta, which makes it perfect for capturing and holding flavours and sauces. It tastes great with a simple natural pesto or with tasty sea food!

Semper also make great basics for cooking and baking including their gluten-free Fine White Flour and Organic gluten-free Oats. The Fine White Flour is a speciality blend of gluten-free flours, starches and gums and can be used to make fantastic textured and delicious gluten-free bread, cakes and biscuits. Their Organic Oats are specially handled during growing and harvesting to avoid contamination with gluten from other grains. Why not use them to make porridge the Swedish way – using water, served with honey, stewed apple and milk – the perfect healthy breakfast for a cold morning!

To finish off, we can’t forget that Semper also produce a delicious range of cookies and biscuits, including our favourite Mint Wafer Bites – perfect with a cup of tea for an afternoon pick-me-up. For a more decadent treat try Semper’s Triple Chocolate Cookies, made with 30% melt in the mouth dark and white chocolate chunks!

You can buy all of these products online from Ocado, and we are sure that once you try them you’ll understand why Semper has been the number one gluten-free brand in the Nordics for so many years!
