School Notice Singapore: Understanding Our Food with Ryan’s Grocery




Ryan’s Grocery, known for its premium range of organic and gluten free groceries and butchery items, is a wholesome one stop shop encompassing products that cater to the discerning foodies with exquisite tastes and special dietary requirements.

In the realm of food today, the words “organic” and “gluten-free” have been really popular as food labels but are also largely misunderstood. Let’s begin with the term “organic”.

To reduce the amount of nasty chemicals and additives that your child consumes, choosing organic certified foods is one of the best choices you can make. Certified organic food is grown and processed without synthetic pesticides, herbicides, hormones or antibodies. It is non-GMO, pasture-fed, free-range, substantially fished and biodiversity-friendly.

Purchasing organic foods will greatly decrease your child’s overall exposure to pesticides and help to create a healthier environment for everyone.

The term “gluten” refers to proteins found in wheat, barley and rye. The common misconception lies in the belief that gluten is equivalent to wheat. While gluten is found in wheat, it is also found in other widely used grains. Hence ‘wheat free’ labelled food products may contain traces of gluten. Interestingly, some grains, like quinoa, brown rice, and buckwheat are naturally free of gluten.

The gluten-free diet remains highly important for those with gluten related disorders and allergies, one of which is commonly identified as coeliac disease. Many kids are diagnosed with it when they are between 6 months and 2 years old, which is when most kids get their first taste of gluten foods.

As coeliac disease is a chronic autoimmune disease, the only available treatment is to embark on a gluten free diet. For most individuals, adhering to a gluten free diet will stop symptoms associated with coeliac disease. Additionally, the healing of the small intestine will begin within weeks of the new diet and it will often completely heal within 6 to 18 months (dependent on a case by case basis).

The first step, or rather, the very foundation, of having a strong immune system is nutrition, and most times, a balanced, real food diet will do the trick at providing your child’s body with the nutrients it needs. Exposure to chemicals can damage the immune system and make it more difficult to fight off common infections and even more serious diseases such as cancer.

About Ryan’s Grocery

Ryan’s Grocery is Singapore’s only full-service organic butchery and allergen-friendly specialist grocery store. The company’s journey began in July 2015 when founders Sebastian and Wendy Chia learnt of their son’s – Ryan – intolerance to gluten, dairy, nuts, soy, egg, and yeast. They searched local markets for products and produce, and even made personal trips internationally to look for a range of dietary items to support his needs.

It was then they saw a demand for such a specialty online grocery store and Ryan’s Grocery was born. Ryan’s Grocery now services the local community, discerning shoppers and those with dietary intolerances with an all-inclusive range of organic meats from our specialty butchery, gluten-free products, and other related items with grocery delivery options.

In December 2019, the brand launched its first overseas flagship store in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Its flagship outlet in Singapore with ‘Ryan’s Grocery’ and ‘Ryan’s Kitchen’ opened in Great World in December 2020, spanning a total of 4,200 sq ft. In 2022, Ryan’s Grocery was awarded “Gourmet Retailer of the Year” and “Best Meat & Seafood Retailer” in Singapore by World Gourmet Summit & Tatler Asia respectively.
