    Zeer.com to Create Your Gluten-Free Shopping List

    Celiac.com Sponsor: Review

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

      One of my favorite features of Zeer.com was how each product was assigned a gluten-free safety status and symbol.


    I just discovered a whole new world in gluten free grocery shopping!  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.

    Each 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!

    I recently tried Benitos gluten free Black Bean Chipotle BBQ Chips and boy was I impressed!  These chips are free from gluten, corn, soy and potato.  This is truly one of those products that seems too good to be true, and I would have never guessed that this great tasting chip is also low glycemic, high in fiber and omega 3's and packs 4 grams of protein for each serving!  It reminded me of a corn chip without the corn, and the seasoning added an extra "sinful" flavor to the chip.  Beanitos gluten free chips pack a great crunch and hold up beautifully to dipping.

    Wellesse’s Digestive 3-In-1 Health liquid dietary supplement provides prebiotics and soluble fiber, (which are both key to maintaining healthy gut microbiotia) as well as aloe vera to balance stomach acidity. These are all important supplements for maintaining a healthy digestive system and Wellesse brings them all together in a form that the body can easily absorb.
    Taken with juice, the supplement is very easy to fit into your morning routine (perhaps easier than pills, for those who have trouble swallowing them). After a week or two, I was noticing more digestive regularity, I was feeling full from meals quicker and I had dramatically reduced acid r...
