_Shopping: Buying Ingredients for Gluten Free Cooking

Serves: 5



We do most of our shopping at the same grocery stores we've always shopped at, because most of the things we cook require regular ingredients. Things like eggs, milk, fruits and vegetables (fresh, frozen, or canned), and plain cuts of meat are naturally gluten free. These stores are also a great place to buy mainstream, convenient products that are gluten free. These include things like chips, pudding mixes, applesauce, juices, lunchmeats, and more. (Wal-Mart has even started labeling the gluten content of its store brands, making it very easy to shop for gluten free products there.)

In addition to the items they already carry, most supermarkets will carry items they receive requests for. So get all your family members and friends to fill out request forms for gluten free products whenever they enter the grocery store!

If you are looking for gluten free baking supplies, Health Food stores are the best place to look. As more people are diagnosed with Celiac, Health Food stores have responded. Many now have gluten free sections, making it easier to find their gluten free products. Call the stores that are nearest your house and ask about their gluten free selection.

You can also buy gluten free flours in bulk from health food stores. Some even offer discounts if you are buying a 25 or 50 lb. bag of flour.

Purchasing things on the internet can be a great way to find gluten free products. Amazon.com currently has a large selection of gluten free mixes and other products at very low prices, as long as you are willing to buy them by the case. We recommend that you try a product at least once before buying 6 or 12 of them. Other websites also sell gluten free products. (OUR website sells gluten free mixes, interestingly enough!) Shipping can be expensive, but internet purchases are a great way to get gluten free products if you live far from any health food stores.
