Gluten Free Grocery List

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am newly diagnosed with celiac. I was wondering if anyone can any gluten free grocery lists? Or any links to websites with a good gluten free grocery list?

I know the basics, but I am scared my grocery trips are going to take hours with reading labels, and thought if someone else had already come up with some lists I could look at that would be helpful!

Thanks in advance! :)

If you shop the outside aisles of the store for mostly whole unprocessed foods that makes it easier at first.

Unless you have a Wegmans close by, (they put a circle G on their gluten-free stuff) you will have to read most labels unfortunately.

Kraft and Unilever will label clearly, there are others also but those are the companies that most come to my mind. Hormel has gluten free lunch meats, they are in a brown package that says gluten free. Oscar Myer is a good company also for that stuff. Yoplait yogurt labels their gluten free yogurts and almost all are.

Thai Kitchen makes some gluten free products, I use their rice pasta a lot. The labels will say gluten free on them.

Delmonte canned tomatoes, fruits etc are gluten free.

Single ingredient frozen veggies and fruits are also safe.

You might want to check out the Gluten free Grocery Shopping Guide (I am hoping it's ok to suggest a specific book?). It lists 100's of different name brand products that are safe. However.... you must still check all ingredients before buying. The book was accurate as of publication date and as well all know much too well product ingredients change. It is a good guideline to get you started. I shopped with that book for months & it really helped - but again, be sure to double check ingredients before you buy!

Both can be very helpful in the first year, while you learn to read labels. The preference is to be a good label reader and not to depend on manufacturers listings, due to frequent changes in product formulations.

As Lisa said, formulas change all the time. Lists can help you decide which products to look at, but they are not a substitute for reading the label.

Thanks! I know that formulas change and I have to label read everything. This weekend will be my first real grocery shopping trip to stock up on gluten free items. I am just feeling a bit overwhelmed and nervous!

Thanks for the support and ideas!

It is hard at first but it will get easier. For this first shopping trip give yourself lots of time and try to relax if you can. Take a short list of the companies that label well and perhaps give yourself a treat once you get home.

My advise is to not buy a lot of gluten free processed food. You might not like them.

Here are a few things my staples:

Eggs

Fresh Meat

Fresh Fish

Fresh Veggies

Fresh Fruit

Boar's Head Meats and Cheese

Hellman's mayo

Smithfield Bacon

All Chex Cereals

Mission Corn Tortillas

Coffee

All Classico Red and White Sauces (pick up some gluten free pasta)

Lumberg Rice Cakes

Unflavored rice

Yoplait Yogurt (except for the cookies/granola kind)

LaChoy Soy Sauce

Lea&Perrins Worchestershire Sauce

Hunts/Heinz Catsup

JELLO

Cheetos

Fritos

Lays Staxx - all varieties

Dove Promisses

Life Savers - Wintergreen

All Butter

Daisy Sour Cream

Kraft Dressing will clearly label all gluten

Smucker's Jelly - all

Jiff peanut butter

***There are many other brands that are generally gluten free, but these are the ones that I frequent. Hope this will give you a start. :)

Thank you! I'll use this as a basic start to my shopping list when I go gluten-free. Reading this makes it all seem so painless! Fresh fruits, veggies, and unprocessed meats, along with bisquick gluten free ... just about covers everything.
