Since I have been gluten free, the Greenwise aisle has gotten larger at my Publix stores, but most of their new additions have not been gluten-free. Well today I perused the area as I do at least monthly and they had some brand of rice pasta called Notta Pasta. They also have Genisoy soy snacks for those who eat soy, Pamela's gluten-free biscotti (three flavors) and Fantastic food gluten-free hummus mix. This particular store is at the corner of Sugarloaf and Five Forks Tricum for those of you in the area.

I was in the Publix by me a couple weeks ago, and thier selection of gluten-free was pathetic, and thier "green" stuff was not much better. Hopefully what you saw is comming turn around for all publics!

I hope that is a sign that all of Publix's will start to carry more gluten-free stuff. When I contacted their corporate offices about getting the list of the Publix brand products that are gluten-free, I begged them to consider carrying more gluten-free stuff.

Thanks - that is right around the corner from my parents' house. I've been wondering what I will do for food when we go over there - now I will know that I can always run out and get something if I need to :)

The Publix by us stinks. Nobody knows what gluten-free is, and the Greenwise portion of the aisle is about 2 feet wide. But I was totally impressed that the Wild Oats by us has little signs under every gluten free product. What a help that is!

I posted a thread a week or so ago about the sign at the fish counter their stuff being CC. Well, the otherday I called the store manager over and showed him the fresh herb's that were in really bad shape. I asked him if he would eat them? He was very nice. I went it to my celiac soap box. He knew all about it and he said we have a few gluten free items. He told me if I gave him a list of the foods we want to buy to stop by and drop it off and he will order these items.

So, my thought is -- make a list, make a few copies drop them off to your local PUBLIX store and/or mail it in to the corp address. And maybe, just maybe, they will stock items that celiac's can eat.

I myself now have secondary food allergies so anything in a package I can't eat. But some of you that haven't developed these secondary intolerance, yet, this might help you.

Give it a try nothing to loose but your gluten free food wish list...

Has anyone tried the pasta? My Publix doesn't have a good selection, but one 20 miles away really does.

We are also getting SweetBay stores since they took over Kash N' Karry - those have great selections.

Do you mean the Notta Pasta? I tried it--I thought it was gummy and stuck together when cooking. Not much taste--kind of pasty. To be fair, I was used to eating Tinkyada and it just does not compare.

I was just in Publix and picked up their Garden Style Pasta Sauce, on sale for 59 CENTS a jar! I was thrilled to get such a good buy - and sure it would be on their Publix brand gluten-free list but when I looked it up - nope, no sauce at all. Back to the 2.50 a jar Newman's.

<<<Greenwise aisle has gotten larger at my Publix stores>>>
Try shopping at SweetBay...I've had better success getting them to stock Gluten-Free than I did with Publix. Publix Corp. just sort of brushed me off with a "well, everyone has their particular wants and needs" and SweetBay got back to me right away with a "we're working hard at briging in trusted Gluten-Free products". Now, if I could only get them to make their CheckOut aisles more user friendly!!

By the way, I live in the Tampa Bay area of Florida and we've got a great Health Food Store that goes out of it's way to stock LOTS of gluten-free products. It's called the Vitamin Outlet in Largo Florida...sandwiched between Clearwater and StPetersburg on EastBay Drive. Not only do they stock all my favorites...but they search for new things to bring in just to try.

Notta Pasta is ggod. really quick to make although it does stick together. I love pasta and although i suppose i agree it doens't have much of a taste, I like the pasta with some spray butter if i don't want my pasta to have to cook a looooong time
