Lowest Prices On gluten-free Flours Ever

I'm blown away by these low prices. Is this site for real? Has anyone ever bought anything from them? If so, what was your experience like? Do they have high shipping costs?

The website claims 4.99 shipping on standard orders. Anything over 50 dollars is free. They say shipping is USPS and/or UPS.

Might be worth a try!

If something appears to be too good to be true, it probably is, my instinct tells me. Not ordering unless someone else has had a good experience.

Those prices are pretty much what I see at stores in my area, like Ocean State Job Lot

or eXpect discounts. If there's a cut-rate store near you like that, you might be surprised

to find they carry Bob's.

I haven't ordered flours from swanson's, but I have ordered their vitamin products. They are reputable and have always delivered for me.

That's where I get all my flours! I've been getting my vitamins, etc. from them for years and they're a very reputable company that's been around for decades. When I saw they started carrying health food & gluten-free items at such good prices I was so excited!! I almost never pay any shipping either because I always google coupon codes before ordering and there usually is one. Now here's the best part (why I bought my vitamins from them for all these years) - they offer a 365 day FREE RETURNS on ALL their items!! They seriously need to hire me as their rep cuz I've been so excited to tell all my friends about this ever since I found out. That policy was awesome to have with my supplements so that if my dr took me off something I could always get my $ back. You can return anything bought within a year - even if it's partly used - return shipping is free and they give you a full refund.

:-D <3

Swanson is a great company! I have not ordered flours from them but I have bought vitamins, lotion, coconut oil, echinacea, fish oil, etc . They will send you a small catolog with each shipment and you can ask for a big catolog. Shipping is cheap and very, very fast. I have gotten my order in less than a week, usually 3 to 4 business days. Unbeatable prices, sales like "buy one get one free" items. I have had free shipping and free almonds. Go for it!

We do have a Big Lots, but haven't found the Bob's products I usually am looking for. Could other gluten freezers go there and clean them out? Hummmmmm. The only Bob's I ever see there, and I hardly ever go, is something like muesli or products with oats in them. Never see rice flour or anything like that, or sorghum.

Thanks everybody. Now that I probably will never use tapioca flour or potato starch again, I've finally found them for less than half what I usually pay. :) :) :) :) :)

    • Thanks, I'll check that out. I may have to apply for my own Medicare card in order to get any kind of coeliac-testing done beyond the screen (see above post.)  No, nobody has even mentioned it. I'm unsure if my doctor knows that I do not need to use my hands to vomit, or if she knows about the involuntary vomiting.  I have a part time job at McDonald's and make around $150 per week, which is how I afford to smoke. Mostly, I spend my money on (generally gluten-containing) binge food and cigarettes. I did attempt to start saving money, but then my shifts were cut at work - which meant I had more time to study, but no money, which was kind of pointless. It's complicated. Here in Australia, cigarettes are $25 per pack. These aren't fancy cigarettes either, just your run-of-the-mill Marlboro 20s. Thanks for caring. I am trying to stop I've had the vomiting thing all my life, way before I started smoking. And no, I'm not sure. I know he had an endoscopy and the flattened villi, but I'm not sure if he got a blood test - I assume he would have done, don;t know if it was the full panel. Supposedly he has this FODMAP thing, which I'll admit that I know next to nothing about. Interestingly, people who have to follow low-FODMAP or no-FODMAP diets can't eat gluten either, so there's that. 
    • Would a coeliac screen be the same as a test for antibodies, then? I have no idea why it was even included in my list of tests. It could be my brother, or my symptoms, or both - regardless, I can't say I know too much about the testing.  It's possible that my brother has coeliac disease, I really do worry about it sometimes. He was told to follow a strict low-FODMAP diet by his doctor, and eventually my parents stopped caring. Occasionally they will remind him not to eat things like pasta, greasy foods, etc. because of his condition, but by and large they don't care. He basically just eats whatever he wants. I'm not sure if it affects him or not. However, he isn't shorter than other family members - my dad is 183cm, and my brother is 178cm at the age of 14. Our mother is 173cm.  I do think I have bad digestion, yes. I get gassy and very bloated often, as well as constipated phases (and then following that, diarrhea phases.)  I have tried to ask my mum to call the doctor to get the tests done, but I'm hesitant to mention anything to do with gluten as I know they won't believe me, solely because a good friend of mine has celiac disease. I know they'll think I'm doing it for attention, or to be trendy, when in actual fact I'm just tired of being sick and having no explanation for it other than diet. I'm positive it's not dairy, as I was vegan for a couple of months at one stage. When I went back to eating animal products, I had no issues whatsoever. 
    • He had the IgG ELISA done as well as other blood panels, fecal and saliva tests. He is on an elimination diet right now where foods that score above 0.2 are eliminated for 2-6 months depending on the score, then added back slowly after the detox period.  I am aware that there is a lot of controversy over the IgG, and I'm not here to go into that issue, but I can say with certainty that eliminating the additional foods he reacted to has seen a huge reduction in the symptoms that persisted after cutting gluten and dairy. We will be attempting to add rice back in around October, and see how he does but until then I still need a solution for a baking mix.  I tried to wing it a bit with pumpkin bread today and my attempt was okay but not great. The loaf sank a bit and was overly chewy.  So, to my original question....recipes?
    • Ask the doctor's office!  But usually you can eat right after if you feel like it.  But ask them!  Some of them will try to give you crackers, so you may want to bring some gluten-free applesauce or Rice Chex
    • I'm wondering if he doesn't have an oat problem. He was only dx'd several months ago and really shouldn't use oats for a year after dx. Just thinking out loud. I too am wondering how the rice was picked out of all those other flours to be determined to be affecting him.
