Well, I have decided that I CANNOT go to a grocery store for gluten-free foods. I am very bad about 'over shopping' because I see something is gluten-free.

If I can buy my gluten-free foods online, it will save me time and money, because I will be able to see my shopping cart, and how much it all costs...

Where is the CHEAPEST gluten-free online store that has a great selection... Is it GFmall?

It has been MY experiene that after looking at many sites for gluten-free foods, that most run the exact same price as I find them in the stores! It could be that someone else knows more than me on this subject but I have been looking around. I have concluded that the upside of shopping online is that you can get quantities that may be more than a small store may have on their shelves. I like to have stock on hand. And often the items I'm looking for isn't available at the time I happen to be shopping either. The downside would be the shipping costs. But for me the stores the carry these kinds of things are a ways away so I'm not spending my time or gasoline to get there. I look forward to reading other responses on this one.

I've looked at a lot of places, and the only one with reasonable prices (cheaper than the store, usually) is the large online retailer that's not allowed to be named here... if you don't know where I'm talking about, think of the largest online retailer you can remember... books, electronics, etc... and it's not eBay.

I agree with brigala.

I have found the best deals on the site you were hinting about. I'll give another hint Starts with an "A" Ends with an "N" :)

I buy my Annies Boxed Mac and Cheese, Gluten Free Pantry Mixes, Cooking and other info Books, Noodles and other Gluten Free Foods on this site. You can sign up for special deals on items that you use a lot (forget what it is called but not everything falls under this special) and if you buy over $25 with them you get free shipping so that helps.

(I am not affiliated with this shopping site just love great deals).

Do you have a WalMart Grocery Store near you? Their brand -- Great Value labels Gluten Free and the normal everyday brand stuff is resonable as well. The next store in line with responable prices is Smith's (at least where I live) same store as Ralph's and Kroger if you have one of those.

Good Luck

By the way, don't be afraid of using the 15% off (and free shipping) with their Subscribe-and-Save program for eligible foods. It's super easy to cancel any time, and they'll even email you a reminder before your next shipment is due to give you a chance to cancel or skip the shipment. This is NOT the equivalent of a book or C D club. ;-)

I'm on a tight budget and I have to watch my pennies! I buy gluten free mixes and snacks from the same on line shop that I buy vitamins from. Free shipping when you buy at least $100 worth of merchandise. They have tiered pricing as well at 3, 6 and 12 quantities. The things I buy I haven't found cheaper anywhere else. The selection is limited.

I don't think I can mention a product search engine, but if you search product search engines with i.e. "gluten free pantry" you get all kinds of on line stores selling the same stuff and get to see side-by-side pricing. You'll have to visit the stores separately to see how much (if any) the shipping charges are. I do this for a lot of on line shopping. And don't forget to go to coupon/promo code sites to see if you can get addtional discounts by using a code at checkout!!

    • Starch is gluten?  Ive been teaching all day and way too tired to make sense of this article.... http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/gluten-starch-same-thing-7317.html
    • I added some onion powder to my dinner today.After eating it i became curious and send an email to manufacturer.They told me its not gluten free they add starch to it.And on package it was saying we dont add anything else:( i dont have symptoms yet but they were selling a range of gluten free products so i remembered like it was gluten free and ugh im so tired of getting glutened by random and useless stuff like this i was doing great for more than a month then this happened im just exteremely sad right now Motivate me for tomorrow guys :((())  
    • Thank you both for the replies. The article is very insightful. Right now I am trying to reason with the thought of being miserable for 4-8 weeks to get a diagnosis. I feel so good right now it seems almost not worth it, but I also need to know if something is wrong and if there are potentially any other digestive system issues. I will likely go on a gluten challenge and deal with the side effects... after all, Thanksgiving is coming up 
    • Cheetah, We all have to make our own health decisions based on our individual circumstances.  There is not any “one size fits all” approach.  ☹️In your daughter’s case, she was asymptomatic.  I also would find it hard to believe that she had celiac disease despite confirmed biopsies and antibodies tests.  I get the denial.  I just had anemia that was disguised by a genetic anemia.  I was shocked at the suggestion of celiac disease.  My hubby had been gluten free for 12 and I knew exactly what the treatment meant — gluten free for life.  A total game changer.   Because we have bought our health insurance for over 20 years, we have lived through the times that I was uninsurable due to my Hashimoto’s, Rosacea and toe nail fungus (yes, that is right).    I never went without, but I could not freely jump from plan  to plan.  My premiums were higher than my hubby’s.  So, we worry that health insurance could change and I would be uninsurable again.  (Did I mention that our annual premium is $24,000?) However, the genetic test can be invaluable but is mostly used to help rule out celiac disease.  There are other genes associated, but they have not been studied well.   “So far, scientists have identified over a dozen possible non-H.L.A. genes that may be associated with celiac disease, but whether these genes actually play a role remains to be seen.”  (Sheila Crowe, now head of the American GI Association).   https://consults.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/01/13/genetic-testing-for-celiac-disease/ The antibodies test, in conjunction with the biopsies is the best means of diagnosing celiac disease to date.  The blood test is the least reliable as there are false positives (rare).    It is hard to dispute villi damage.  Too bad your Aunt did not get a biopsy, but understandably, an endoscopy can be costly if you lack insurance and there are many other reasons, so many are forced to forgo this procedure.   https://www.ueg.eu/education/latest-news/article/article/mistakes-in-coeliac-disease-diagnosis-and-how-to-avoid-them/   It is unfortunate that we must weight the risks and benefits of everything.    
    • Kirsty, in my experience, being ‘gluten light’ is not helpful. I think it doesn’t make any sense tbh – it does more harm than good. The withdrawal period is very different from being gluten-free long term. The withdrawal symptoms can be extremely unpleasant but they are temporary! Let’s say 4-6 weeks. I personally was feeling like a drug addict or an alcoholic in rehab at the time. I was having all kinds of withdrawal issues – one of them was extreme hunger and unusual stomach cramps caused by hunger. I had to eat approx. every 2 hours – otherwise I would get very dizzy and lightheaded. It felt as if my body was finally getting the types of foods it needed (= gluten free) and wanted these ‘right’ foods constantly.   The fact that my body viewed gluten as a drug and was addicted to it was a proof in itself for me that I am gluten intolerant. Let’s say I wouldn’t eat any potatoes for 2 or 3 weeks – nothing would happen. Often the types of food we love the most, crave and can’t live without are the very types of food we are intolerant and addicted to. If you’re not a diabetic, the hypoglycemia could resolve completely on the gluten-free diet.   My advice would be read about gluten withdrawal and don’t let it discourage you.
