Genius bread – now on prescription!

September 4, 2010

Genius have announced that they have finally been able to tick all the boxes and their unsliced Genius bread is now available on prescription in the UK.

To qualify, the Genius team have submitted a number of applications to the Advisory Committee on Borderline Substances (ACBS). This is an independent body that advise the Department of Health and GPs on products that are not drugs or medical devices that can be prescribed to patients. Food falls into their remit so gluten-free products must meet their criteria to be recommended. It doesn’t surprise me that some gluten-free products fall into the category of borderline substances!

If you are eligible for gluten-free food on prescription you can now talk to your GP about getting Genius bread. Genius on prescription comes in cases of 6 unsliced 400g white or brown loaves. If you fancy upgrading your prescription to Genius you can find our more here on the Genius website.
