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. :) :) :) :) :)

    • Are M&Ms Gluten Free?
      Hi. Thanks for the reply. I read "wheat" on the packaging of the regular / plain M&Ms package. Not on the mini's package. I've never seen a package of mini-M&Ms. I've only seen them as ice cream toppings. I'll buy a pack and photograph what I read. Maybe this would be helpful? Thanks again, Olivia 
    • how long does it take to show signs of being glutened?
      My two year old son has been diagnosed with celiac for almost three months. So far, I think we have done well keeping him completely gluten free. Our biggest worry is cross contamination because he is so young and constantly putting his hands in his mouth. My question is, how long does it take to show signs that he was glutened? He complained of a stomachache yesterday before bed (I wasn't sure at the time if it was just a bedtime stalling technique) and also had two very messy diapers today. I've been racking my brain trying to figure out if he could have gotten glutened somehow, or maybe it's just a normal stomach issue for any kid. It would help if I knew the average time it took for symptoms to show up after someone has been glutened. Thanks!
    • Did Jennifer Esposito Leave Town Amid $43 Million Gluten-Free Bakery Lawsuit?
      Wasn't this some gossip rag nonsense from a few weeks back?  I think it's been proven false.  But, even so, why is celebrity gossip from unreliable sources here?  And I can't leave a comment on the actual article, because he approves and often edits the comment.
    • Recovery?
      Hi PLB, If he hasn't been gluten-free very long, he might still be able to get blood testing done for the gliaden (gluten) antibodies.  More than a couple weeks may be too long tho. As far as recovery, it varies from person to person.  The condition associated with celiac that you are thinking of is probably gluten ataxia.  Gluten ataxia is an antibody attack on the brain cells that can cause problems walking and controlling muscles.  Generally it seems people consider nervous system healing / recovery to be a fairly slow process.  Although it sounds like your husband is experiencing some recovery already, which is great! I've read about coconut having benefits for people with alzhiemers disease, but don't know if it would help him.  I doubt it would hurt though.  The B-vitamins including B-12 are supposed to be very important for nervous system health.  Vitamin d is also important but make sure you take a supplement that is tested and reliable.  Check out https://labdoor.com/  for their review/test results.  Dr. Hadjivassiliou has done some research on gluten ataxia and you might find reading his information helpful. Nuerological symptoms without gastro symptoms
      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20170845 Dietary treatment of gluten ataxia
      http://jnnp.bmj.com/content/74/9/1221.full Ubo's, Epilepsy And Celiac Testing for celiac disease usually starts with a blood antibody test and then a endoscopy to check for gut damage.  If a person has been off gluten for a while though, the tests are not much use.  The antibodies in the bloodstream start to drop off and may not be detectable anymore.  They usually say to eat gluten for around 12 weeks in that case before trying testing again.  I can understand why he wouldn't want to do that though considering his symptoms.  I am not sure it would be a good idea. Welcome to the forum and congrats on finding  away to improve his condition! If you turn on the notify me of replies slide button near the bottom left of the reply screen you can get an email when you receive responses to your thread. There is some helpful info in this thread about celiac disease.             
    • Genetic Results
      I have been looking for an explanation to what exactly I have, as my doctor just said that I have the genes that cause Celiac. They never went any further than that.... The wikipedia link makes some sense, but at the same time it does not. It almost seems like I have 1 full DQ2, and half of a DQ2?   Test: DQ Alpha 1 - 02:01,03 Test : DQ Beta 1 - 02:02,03:02 DQ Serologic Equivalent: 2,8 Method: Molecular typing of HLA antigens performed using reverse SSOP and/or SSP methods, reported as serological equivalents and low to medium resolution molecular values

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
