Shopping for gluten free foods doesn’t have to be hard as there are so many new products hitting the shelves. These days, gluten free products are clearly labelled and you can find them across the supermarket, not just in a section earmarked for special diets. If you’re on a gluten free diet, whether you suffer from coeliac disease or find you feel better when you avoid gluten, there are more and more options for you to buy.
But some gluten free products are better than others so to help you find the best, we’ve picked some of our favourites for our gluten free foods edit, all of which you can find easily on the high street or online.
Gluten must be avoided by sufferers of coeliac disease, which is estimated to affect 1 per cent of the population, but many others are now following a gluten free diet, finding that they feel better that way, less bloated and without the so-called wheat belly’. Whatever your reason, a gluten free diet can take a bit of getting used to as foods like bread and pasta are a staple for many. The products in our gluten free foods round-up will help you make that change, but also give you great options that you can come back to again and again as you settle into a gluten free lifestyle.
