Where to Find Ingredients & Products That Are Gluten Free

The first trip to the grocery store after being diagnosed with celiac disease can take hours. People tell us that they walked aimlessly around the store, picking up boxes, reading the labels, and then putting them back on the shelf. While your shopping trips may take longer as you become accustomed to your new diet, this information will help make them a little easier.

We do most of our shopping at the same grocery stores we’ve always shopped at, because most of the things we cook require regular ingredients. Things such as eggs, milk, fruits and vegetables (fresh, frozen, or canned), and plain cuts of meat are naturally gluten free. 

These stores are also a great place to buy mainstream, convenient products that are gluten free. These include items such as chips, pudding mixes, applesauce, juices, lunch meats, snacks, and more. 

Many stores have started labeling or marking items as gluten free, making it easier to find products that you can eat. Some stores also have gluten-free sections, including freezer sections. Health food stores will also have a variety of gluten free options that may not be found at a traditional grocery store. Many stores are also starting to offer their own brand of gluten-free products or mixes such as Kroger (which operates Fred Meyer, Smiths, Ralphs, and many other stores) and Wal-Mart.  

In addition to the items they already carry, most supermarkets will stock items they receive requests for. So get all your family members and friends to fill out request forms for gluten-free products whenever they enter the grocery store!

HEALTH FOOD Stores

If you are looking for gluten-free baking supplies, health food stores are the best place to look. As more people are diagnosed with celiac, health food stores have responded. Many now have gluten-free sections, making it easier to find their gluten-free products. 

Call the stores that are nearest to your house and ask about their gluten-free selection. Another option is to buy gluten-free flours in bulk from health food stores to create your own flour blend. You can also get Eating Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour in quantities from 10 lbs to 50 lbs, making it easy and convenient for you to have an all-purpose flour that you can use cup for cup as a replacement. Having a good flour mix that you like can make all the difference in how your recipes turn out – this is particularly important for baking bread.

Online Stores

Purchasing things on the internet can be a great way to find gluten-free products. We encourage you to do your research, and be sure that the products are packaged in facilities that understand cross-contamination, and have rigorous testing to ensure that their products are truly gluten free. 

Eating Gluten Free has a variety of products, flours and mixes that we sell online making it easy for anyone to purchase our products. Our co-packer GF Blends is a dedicated facility and they test to ensure each batch passes their 5 parts per million test, when the FDA requires you to pass 20 parts per million. You can learn more about testing processes here. 

Amazon currently has a large selection of gluten-free mixes and other products at very low prices, as long as you are willing to buy them by the case. We recommend that you try a product at least once before buying 6 or 12 of them. 

Regardless of where you purchase gluten-free items online, shipping can be expensive. However, internet purchases are a great way to get gluten-free products that may not be available in your area, and you can find mixes and products you have never had before.
