BALTIMORE — Tulkoff Food Products, a third-generation, family-owned manufacturer of condiments, specialty sauces and ingredients, has removed partially hydrogenated oils, trans fats and gluten from all Tulkoff Original Garlic Spreads.
The Baltimore based manufacturer made the changes in response to FDA regulations and consumer demands.

Our removal of gluten is a response to increasing customer demands for products without wheat,” said Phil Tulkoff, president of Tulkoff Food Products. “We remain committed to our customers to be ahead of trends and regulations, this is the first step to evaluating the ingredients in all of our products to ensure that we continue to provide safe quality food options for our customers and their consumers.”
