A List of Gluten Free Foods You Can Eat

Before we get started with this list, a little disclaimer. Always, always, always, always, always read the label on any processed or packaged food. Always. Even food that you are sure is gluten free. Too often I’ve bought something while being distracted by little people and gotten it home and discovered that the company had changed the formula and it now contained something with gluten. If you aren’t sure what to look for, stick with brands that clearly label their products with “gluten free” or click here to check out a list of ingredients that contain gluten.

The list below consists mostly of naturally gluten free foods.

  8. Great list! I have noticed that some shredded cheese (along with some grated cheeses) contain gluten. Something about an additive to keep it from sticking together. It doesn’t usually come right out and call it gluten, though. Thanks for your wonderful blog. Just found it today and am following you about everywhere now. Hope you are having a great week!

    • I had heard that too. For things that I’m not sure about, I try to stick with trustworthy brands. Kraft always mentions on their labels if their ingredients are sourced from wheat so if you’re not sure about grated cheese, try theirs. :)

  10. I noticed Mustard on your list of Gluten free foods. I have found that not all mustards are Gluten-Free. Just be sure and check the labels. Love your site! Happy I found you!

    • Thanks Sasyphras, if you come across mustard with gluten in it again, would you mind sending me the brand name so I can make a side note? The mustard I’ve seen in North America has mustard seed, water, vinegar and sometimes tumeric for color.

  11. Also if you buy generic brand mustards and mayonnaise they can also contain wheat so make sure you look out for that as well! I’ve fallen victim to this before, especially western family!

    • Hi Katie! Thanks for the heads up! The Western Family Mayonnaise doesn’t list any gluten containing items on the label, but Western Family does produce some products that contain gluten. You may have gotten sick from cross contamination from gluten on the factory floor. Some companies are just sloppy about keeping gluten separate from non-gluten items. So sorry this happened!
