A number of cooking demonstrations also form part of the line-up including a Karma Kitchen Demo by television chef and cookbook writer Kevin Dundon.
An expert panel discussion on the theme of Gluten-Free Snacking On-The-Go will take place, while SafeFood will host an information session entitled Understanding Food Labelling, with top tips on interpreting the nutritional content of gluten-free products.
Expert talks will include a presentation by Dr Nick Kennedy, President of the Coeliac Society of Ireland, on Paths to Diagnosis of Coeliac Disease.

The Gluten Free Living Show is sponsored by SuperValu and Marketing Manager Tara Clifford said, “We are delighted to sponsor this event. SuperValu has supported the Coeliac Society of Ireland for the last three years as this market continues to grow year on year. SuperValu has invested heavily in developing a range of gluten free products that offer good value and great taste. Our Food Academy programme has also produced a large number of innovative products demonstrating the potential for small producers to develop some nice niche products. This show is a great opportunity to showcase the range of gluten-free produce available and for us to engage with our shoppers to get their views.”
