My Favorite Gluten Free Shopping Sites

webaddressI get a lot of emails from people with questions that were just diagnosed as having Celiac disease. The most common question I get is, "What are some good internet sites for buying gluten free products?"

Oh boy!  Wahoo!  A question about shopping!  Yes, I admit I love to shop for anything,  including gluten free products.  If we lived 20 years ago, being gluten intolerant would've been much more difficult because the internet was not commonly used to make shopping so easy.  But not now!  It's so simple to find great sites with all the gluten free products you could possibly want or need from beer to bread to cakes.

Being an avid shopper, I've created a list of my favorite shopping sites.  When people call me and ask about internet sites that sell trustworthy gluten free products, I whip out my trusty list and provide the following web addresses.

1.    Gifts of Nature sells gluten free flour and baking mixes that make great breads and cakes.

2.    Glutino & The Gluten Free Pantry sells gluten free gourmet baking mixes (I wasn't about to go without desserts just because I'm gluten intolerant).

3.    The Gluten Free Mall has a huge list of gluten free products for sale.  They also sell products for lactose and casein free diets.

4.    The Gluten Free Café sells select gluten free products that are freeze-dried, dehydrated and ready-to-eat meals.  If you do a lot of outdoor activities such as camping you can find take-along food that are  gluten free.  That's great news for Celiacs who sometimes spend hours preparing food ahead of time. They don't sell directly from the website, but you can use the store locator feature to find a store near you.

5.    Gluten Solutions sells a variety of gluten free products from baking mixes to soups to crackers.

6.    Amazon.com sells...practically everything can think of gluten free related (including most of the brands listed above) . And if you buy a certain amount shipping is usually free.

I'm sure there are many other great product sites out there, but these are the ones I have frequented most often over the years. Although I have to say that Amazon.com has become my 'go-to' store in recent years simply for its selection, price, and customer service.

Here's a great tip for you - when you plan on visiting family or friends, have a food box of gluten-free items sent to their address before you arrive.  I do that when I visit my grandmother out-of-state and plan to stay overnight for one or more nights. I confess I always make sure gluten free chocolate brownies are in it too! I don't like feeling left out when it's time to eat dessert.

By the way, when someone you know is diagnosed with Celiac disease, a great comfort gift to start them on their new life is a gift box of gluten free food.  This will greatly encourage that person and at the same time it is a great excuse to Go Shopping!

    I like Amazon.com to shop for gluten free products for myself and my allergy prone relatives, one of whom is not only gluten intolerant, but also corn sensitive.

      It's my favorite too! It has such a great selection, of well, pretty much everything. The more you can shop on one site, and combine shipping costs, the more money you'll save in the long run.

    I have become an avid Sprouts shopper. I am not sure if they have locations nationally. I am in the SW.

    They have so many GF products on their shelves, you can pretty much find anything! Products are well marked with yellow labels. So it makes shopping easy, quick and simple. I realize this is a physical store (several locations in Arizona) and not an on line site, but I thought I'd share that with all.

    Thanks,

      We have a new tool you can use to customize the recipes you see on our site. Once you log in, go into the 'My Account' tab, then under 'Do Something', click on 'My Preferences'. You can check off boxes for egg free, nut free - or any other ingredients (allergens) you don't want in recipes, as well as specialty diets like Diabetic. Then hit save. Now only recipes that we have identified with those labels will appear. That should help narrow down your recipe choices!

    Abesmarket.com has a decent selection, and you can also fine tune your requests by specifying "paleo", "organic" or other criteria. Prices are excellent and over $49 shipping is free.

    theculinaryartist.com has a variety of helpful information on gluten free products, recipes, and other related topics.

    Tate's Bake Shop has a marvellous selection of cookies and brownies which are gluten free. They make the most delicious DOUBLE chocolate chip cookies on the planet!

    Is one of those sites especially recommended when I'm also looking for organic/ less processed food?!
    thanks!

      Yes, if you want full access to our over 1000 recipes, but we do have hundreds of free recipes and near-daily free emails of recipes as well (just sign up with your name and email on the Home page where it says 'free recipes).

    I don't know where any of these ladies live who are looking for sources to buy the flours/starches for recipes. I live in a very large suburb of Toronto, Ont. and the major grocery chains here do NOT carry any of those products.. only have pre-mixed products... BUT, we have a chain here in Ontario that has stores in different cities/towns.. it's called the BULK BARN.. they have any thing you could possibly need. it is all in bulk so you buy only the amount you want at the time, until you're happy with whatever combination you choose for your recipes. I haven't looked online, but I'm sure they have a website where you might learn where their stores are.. Good luck.. & keep the good recipes coming.
