Shop Locally

One of the great things about shopping at local stores is personal recommendations. If you go to a local gluten free store or health store, often employees can steer you toward popular products.

What a great way to try new gluten free foods risk free!

Gluten Free Foods Online

The internet is an amazing shopping resource, particularly when you’re searching for specific products. Not only can you find ingredients list and particular nutritional values on most popular brands of foods, but a huge variety of gluten free retailers exist online. Whether you want to order Gluten Free All Purpose Flour from Bob’s Red Mill or you’re looking for gluten free pasta, chances are you’ll find it in just a few clicks.

If you do decide to order online, look for special offers for shipping. Some retailers will ship for free if you purchase enough product. If you order a lot at one time, but less often, you can save a fair amount on shipping alone.

As you can see, the variety of foods that you can eat while maintaining a gluten free diet is huge. The primary areas that are impacted are grains and products containing grains. With the introduction of so many gluten free baking products, finding substitutes is becoming easier every day. By learning a few shopping techniques you will quickly be able to find everything you need from gluten free pizza dough to gluten free soy sauce.
