That could be quite useful for those who are looking to purchase on line, especially those who are in rural areas and don't have the luxury of having specialty stores or major supermarkets that carry gluten-free items.

As for me, I am adamantly against ordering things on-line. I just can't seem to get myself over that paranoid hurdle that my personal information (i.e. credit card numbers, address, etc. etc.) is properly protected.... Same with on-line banking, I just can't seem to get comfortable about that, I prefer to go into the bank and actually deal with a living person!!! :P

I know what you mean Karen, about being paranoid. I think we need to be these days! I do shop online, because I do live in a somewhat rural area, and am limited by what the Whole Foods and Trader Joes carry in the nearest big city. They don't carry nearly enough, and even with shipping charges I can get a better price online, when I buy in bulk. I only shop at reputable sites and use my credit card that has fraud protection. I also don't do any online banking, or bill paying. I've just heard too many horror stories.

celiac3270, thanks for putting up the link to the article, it can certainly help to point new gluten-free shoppers in the right direction.

God bless,

Mariann

Even with Kroger and its wonderful nutrition section nearby, I still find myself needing to order on-line in order to get enough at a reasonable price to feed our larger family (we keep a gluten-free household due to a mix of extreme sensitivity and a younger child who sneeks inappropriate foods if they are around). I also try to use only reputable vendors and keep a credit card specifically for that purpose. The credit card also helps me to track purchases more easily...not to mention that my pantry does not always respect my checking account balance!

My allergy to rice causes me major problems with buying mixes. I really need to look at the costs of things online and compare them to my whole foods store. My Kroger does not have a gluten free selection that I can find. I will have to make hubby take me so I can look up and down every aisle! And not let him rush me!!

You're right, not all Kroger stores have a gluten free section. Unfortunately, I live in one of the areas that does not. Once every other week I take a trip to a larger city that does and also visit a health food store there. It's a 1 1/2 hour trip, one way. But it is nice to know it's there. I usually just end up ordering my things online. The selection is much better and it is often hard to find enough time to make the trip. My kids are very involved in sports and church activities and that takes up most of our time. Online is just easier for me. I have found WalMart to be very unfriendly to the Celiac, and that's about all we have closeby other than Kroger.
