I'm seeing a couple of topics about this from the forum pop up on google on an initial search, but nothing especially recent, and the non-message-board results are rather limited. I have a cat who actually prefers dry kibble to wet cat food (best I can figure is that's what he is used to), is fully indoor, and is adult/mature (10 years old).

Am kinda considering trying him on gluten-free cat food (I'm a little allergic to him, and part of why I'm considering trying gluten-free food for him is I am wondering if that will lessen if I start him on gluten-free food), but only if there if gluten-free cat food that is accessible and at least as good for him as what he's getting now. If there is none, that's definitely a line in the sand- my health matters, but my cat's health darn well matters too. That said, it's sort of intuitive that gluten wouldn't be something a cat would "need" in its diet, and I'm assuming it's more often used to make kibble be, well, kibble.

Anyway- anyone have any recommendations?

Grain-free diets for cats and dogs are a trend of late. Numerous options exist in multiple brands. We use Natural Balance and Now! cat kibble. Of the two, Natural Balance is more widely distributed.

Blue Wilderness is grain free and all four of my cats love it. There are other brands that are also gluten free, but my cats didn't favor them. I feel so much safer serving them Blue Wilderness--now I don't have to wash my hands after serving them their food.

I find Blue Wilderness at Petco, but I think PetSmart also sells it.

Our Bella eats Merrick's Before Grains wet and dry food and is healthy and enjoys a fabulous, gorgeous coat.

If I could stand it, I'd eat it with her and have thicker hair, I am sure. :)

    • This pain is constant and nauseating it's in my back and stomach burns all the time.  My GI doctor barely knows about cealic they did an ultra sound came back clear.  I can't sleep my stomach hurts it feels like someone ripped a scab off and like it's being eaten by acid 24/7 I'm starting to fail school, I can't work because of the pain I feel like crying, I kind of just want everything to end I've been in pain for a year and half now and doctors are just taking my money and not solving the problem it's driving me insane. Just a burning nasunating feeling that never goes away, makes it hard to walk hard to live hard to drive to do anything I feel like I'm being tortured everyday.   dont know what else to do, I kind of hope someone on this site had similar pain and maybe can suggest what this may be? Because I can't function anymore.
    • Jersey Mike's Subs sandwich chain is known for its in-house baked bread, and tasty submarine sandwiches. To offer gluten-free buns for its customers, Jersey Mike's has partnered with Udi's. Starting in December, Denver-based Udi's will provide fully cooked, individually wrapped gluten-free buns at all 1,320 Jersey Mike's locations nationwide. The Udi's gluten-free bun will cost customers about an extra $1.50 for regular gluten-free subs and $3 for "giant" subs, according Jersey Mike's chief operating officer Mike Manzo.

    • I only ever have black coffee, either espresso or americano (pretentious name annoys me but what can you do). It's listed as ok here: https://www.costa.co.uk/nutrition/Costa-ANI-data-November-2017.pdf so its only if there's cc that there would be a problem. I've been ok so far  
    • Just read the ingredients?  Its very unlikely to have gluten in pickled stuff or cheese (except the beer cheese).  Never seen a marshmallow with gluten (I like Kraft because I think they are better).  I use McCormick for most spices & vanilla..  they are just spices.  Never seen a vanilla with gluten.     IN the US, wheat will be clearly announced in the ingredients (its a law).  Rye is only in a few things like bread or crackers & its an ingredient so it will be listed as an ingredient.  Barley is listed as barley or malt (usually barley malt).  Brewers yeast sometimes contains gluten - so avoid.  Oats need to say gluten-free oats or the product needs to be listed as gluten-free.   Lots of pre-packed lunch meats actually say gluten free on them.  Go to the store and look!
    • I'm probably the most annoying person on this forum. Lately I've been posting everyday😊  ok wondering a few brand options for products just need a list.... Pickles: Green olives: Banana peppers: Lunchmeat: turkey/salami/pepperoni Hard/block cheese (cheddar or colby): (was told the meijer brand block cheese contained gluten through, that was by the store manager so don't know if it was fully accurate) Marshmallows: Vanilla and cinnamon: Garlic powder: That's it for now I'll probably think of more. Trying to add some easy things to my diet.
