Gluten Free Flour At Costco?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine told me she saw a 5lb bag of gluten free baking flour at Costco. She didn't have anymore specific details than that. I haven't been to Costco since she mentioned it to check it out. Has anyone seen this before? Is it decent flour?

I don't have a Costco near me in AZ but my mom in Southern CA said that she has seen a couple Gluten Free things. One of the things she told me was Bob's Red Mill Quinoa. My SIL goes to the same Costco and said that that carry Organic Chicken.

I think it all depends on the Costco's location and what people are asking for in that area.

I'm from Arizona too, but the Phoenix area. I didn't see it at the Costco near me in Gilbert. My friend said she saw it at the Costco at 44th ST and Thomas in Phoenix. That is very close to my husband's office so I'm sending him to check on it during his lunch on Monday. I got a bit more information she said it was a 5lb bag of Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free and it was around $6. That sounds too good to be true, but I am hoping. Is the Bob's Red Mill All Purpose stuff good?

I've heard good things about the flour. I bought Bob's Red Mill Organic Quinoa (4 lb bag) at Costco in Southern California Orange County area. It was a great price. Where is the Costco where she saw the flour? I'd drive to get some because Costco prices are so good.

It was at the Phoenix store at Thomas and 44th Street. I'm sending my husband to check for it on Monday since he works in that neighborhood. I'll update with the price when he gets it.

Thanks so much! :D I'm a bit far (in So. Calif. although if I were driving thru, I'd definitely stop & shop). I can always ask my local Costcos to stock it since it's already in some of their AZ stores.

Hm, I got a 10 lb. bag of Tom Sawyers Flour for $32...so that sounds pretty amazing. I'm going to see if ours here in PA have it.

We like the Tom Sawyer the best for general purpose use. Did you get it online or is it in stores now?

thanks

I got it at the Gluten Free Source, LLC in Dillsburg, PA. You can order from them online. I thought the price was high, but I'm not disappointed. I cut it half and half with sorghum for baking, and it makes an amazing cookie.

Update:

I checked at Costco. My Costco did not carry it, but they were very helpful in looking up which stores in the area did. It seems about half the Costco's around here carry it. It is Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Baking Flour and costs $5.99 for 5 pounds. If your Costco doesn't carry it I would ask them to check which ones near you do, maybe another one might.

Thanks -- only one on my island but sometimes they will order things from other costco or the mainland. 5.99 for 5 pounds is less than the other stores have 1 lb going for.

Amazing

Update: checked for the Bob's Red Mill gluten-free Flour at a local Costco in South Orange County in Calif. & they used to carry it but it was discontinued. The manager checked in the general LA area & it was discontinued elsewhere as well. Boo! :(

    • Yeah , i will look into getting tested - like you say there is no harm in it . What I found very interesting is the part where you say "Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflamed tissues pressing on nerves." - I also started to get chronic sciatic nerve pain on the right side over a similar time period and am wondering if its the same kind of thing. If I could solve both those things it would be life changing for me
    • Hi ,  i was thinking that an intolerance and allergy were about the same thing really but sorry if im wrong. I know celiac is an autoimmune disease but was thinking that is different again, more serious and was erring on the side of my possible issue not being that but more of the intolerance type. Clearly im just guessing though and dont know about this stuff , hence the posting for advice, The problem with trying to get tested is that in bolivia there are very limited tests and doctors are unreliable so you have to rely on yourself to certain degree. I have heard of a test here and was planning on looking into that but it made sense to try to get some opinions and advice online first so Im in a better position to understand if any tests here are actually reliable enough. I dont think there is an issue with travel parasites etc as I have already taken the medications thats would kill them like a course of albendazol and praziquantel and that was after a 2 week anti parasite cleanse. That did feel like it got rid of anything and the only issue I have been left with is this pain as described.
    • Karen's point about parasites etc is a good one. They can cause a lot of symptoms similar to celiac /ncgs as you probably know.  At 11 I had my appendix removed following pain in the lower right side of my torso. On waking up the surgeon told me that it was actually ok, when I asked what caused the pain I think they said it was probably glandular - they didn't know. Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflammed tissues pressing on nerves. I would ask the Bolivian doctors if they can get any celiac blood testing done. The standard ttg may not be beyond their labs. can't hurt to ask? Give your diet my guess is you've had a lot of gluten for a long time. If its an issue for you expect a bumpy ride when removing it.  Best of luck!  
    • You can supplement if you want to.  IF you are low on iron or vitamin D - then some vitamins might be helpful.   The treatment for Celiac disease is a strict gluten free diet.  Some people need to cut out lactose for a few months, too.  The villi that are damaged in Celiac are the part that helps you digest lactose.  So, until they are healed, it might help to skip milk , cream, etc.     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/are-there-vitamins-created-specifically-for-nutrient-deficiencies-in-celiac-patients-2/  
    • First - there is no such thing as a "gluten allergy".  Celiac is an autoimmune disease.  Just so you understand. It could be Celiac or a different gluten intolerance.  I am guessing you aren't going to get tested for Celiac disease.  IF it were me, I would be more concerned that maybe there is still some sort of infection or parasite from the places you have been.  I think I would try to get a good work-up for that first.
