At Del Real Foods we make gluten free products. From our salsa to our side dishes and to our proteins, it is all gluten free. Yes, we also have gluten free tamales. The tamales are gluten free because corn naturally does not contain gluten.
Gluten is found in grains such as rye, barley and wheat. According to dictionary.com gluten is a protein mixture made up of glutelin and gliadin. Gluten is used to hold the product in its shape and it also adds texture to the dough.

Our tamales along with the rest of our products are gluten free. Our stone ground tamales are made traditionally with the corn being grounded between alternating stones. This method allows for a coarse texture and provides an authentic flavor.
