Essential 10: Gluten-Free Products

Living gluten free for 3 weeks definitely changed our grocery shopping habits, but we couldn't survive without some processed foods, and you'll find 10 of our favorites below. Thankfully, a lot of mainstream companies are much more aware of the prevalence of food intolerances and allergies, so they're getting better at indicating which products contain allergens or which are g-free, nut-free, or dairy-free. We're listing products here that you can either buy online or in many mass-market grocery store chains, but there are a lot of great G-free products available at organic-focused grocers like Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.

1 - Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownie, Chocolate Chip Cookie, Devil's Food Cake, and Yellow Cake Mixes ($4-7 depending on store)

2 - Tostitos Natural Blue Corn Restaurant Style Tortilla Chips ($4)

3 - Honey Nut Chex Cereal ($3)

4 - Barbara's Bakery Peanut Butter Puffins Cereal ($5)

5 - Andean Dream Quinoa Gluten Free Spaghetti Pasta ($5/box - we found it for around $3/box at a Whole Foods, though)

6 - Haagen-Dazs Five (around $4-5 per pint, we tested [read: devoured] the Vanilla Bean flavor)

7 - San-J Organic Gluten & Wheat-Free Tamari Soy Sauce ($4)

8 - Montana Gluten Free Oat Products (from $10 for 3lb oatmeal/oat flour)

9 - Udi's Gluten-Free Granola ($6/bag)

10 - Pamela's Products Cornbread & Muffin Mix ($21 for 6 12-ounce bags)

Thanks for featuring gluten-free products! General Mills has been amazing in the past couple years with the gluten-free Chex varieties and baking mixes.

Just a word about the Puffins. Unless they've changed the recipe lately, the ingredients for only the Honey Rice variety read gluten-free (and if you have celiac, I think there are issues with cross-contamination). I do not think they use certified gluten-free oats in all of their products.

Bob's Red Mill makes many good gluten free mixes and ingredients. I prefer them to Betty Crocker for sure.
