Dear all,

I will be visiting the US soon (Ohio, West Virginia and Texas) and this will be my first visit since going gluten-free.

I'd be grateful for any advice on easily available/mainstream foods which are reliably gluten-free. I cook from scratch as often as possible and I'll take some kitchenware with me but I can't rely on being able to cook much.

I also can't tolerate corn/soy and I follow a FODMAPs diet, so I can't eat too many foods based on fruit or beans.

Could you please recommend...?

- brands (inc supermarket brands) which reliably label their food as gluten-free

- stores which sell a good range of gluten-free foods

- any suggestions for food I can grab and eat (snacks, candy, microwave dinners - not my favourites, but in case of a hunger emergency!)

Grateful for any suggestions!

India

(Looking forward to those gluten-free Rice Krispies I've heard about...)

I don't know if they are in the places you are going but if a Wegmans is near they label all their gluten free store brand items with a Circle G and I have never had an issue with any of their stuff.

Thai Kitchen noodles are a staple at my house. You can find them in the Oriental foods section in a lot of places. Kraft and Unilever products are well labeled. Finding gluten free stuff is getting much easier as time goes on.

I hope you have a great trip.

You need to find a Whole Foods Market (grocery chain), or Trader Joe's (grocery chain). You'll find Whole Foods in TX - they are based in Austin.

Eat at more upscale restaurants - they tend to cook with whole food, so they can alter the meals.

Also, therese be celiac support groups in the areas you're visiting, google it. Locals can help alot.
