Zeer.com to Create Your Gluten-Free Shopping List

I just discovered a whole new world in gluten free grocery shopping!  Zeer.com (www.zeer.com) is an easy-to-use Web site that offers a service, called Zeer Select, to those on a gluten-free diet.  Zeer Select is a database of over 30,000 mainstream products, each with its own gluten-free safety status.  I’m talking about easy-to-find items that you can locate in a “regular” grocery store.  I was able to simply search for the gluten-free status of a product by category, product name, or UPC code.  If I searched for products which turned out not to be gluten-free it would recommend a similar product that was gluten-free.

One of my favorite features of Zeer.com was how each product was assigned a gluten-free safety status and symbol.  The safety levels are based on the ingredients as well as the manufacturers’ statements.  Not only are the products assigned their own gluten-free safety status, but the questionable or “not safe” ingredients are highlighted with links that further explain why particular ingredients are not considered gluten-free.

Zeer.com to Create Your Gluten-Free Shopping ListEach item also included detailed product information, including its ingredients and nutritional facts (and not just its gluten-free status).  This is another great feature for those who are watching things like their sodium or carbohydrate intake, or those who might be looking for food items with extra fiber. 

On top of all this, Zeer.com includes the manufacturer contact information in case you have any questions or concerns and need to speak directly to the company about the product. They are also continuously updating their site by adding or updating around 500 new products each week, and I appreciated that they list the date on which each product was last updated¬, knowing this really built up my confidence in this web site. 

Whether you are new to a gluten-free diet or feel like your options are limited, I would highly recommend Zeer.com to help you prepare your next gluten-free shopping list!
