My Favorite Gluten-Free Products

Posted on February 18th, 2017 by Alison Read 1 Comment - Add Your Own »

I get asked quite often for my recommendations of gluten-free products. Since my celiac diagnosis in 2002, I have tried hundreds (maybe even thousands!) of different brands. Gluten-free food has come a long way since then, but it still can be hit or miss in terms of taste and texture. Of course, the healthiest way to be gluten-free is to eat naturally gluten-free foods (meat, vegetables, fruit, etc), but I still enjoy pasta, breads, cookies, pizza and other normally gluten-filled foods, in moderation.

Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order. While there are many other products I have enjoyed, these are the foods I come back to regularly, the ones I feed my family, the ones I offer to my guests, the ones I bring to a potluck. This is just a start. I will continue to update this list over time, and feel free to leave your opinions/favorites/questions in the comments – I would love to hear what you like and I’m sure others would appreciate the information also.

(Note: this list contains only gluten-free foods – it does not address other food allergies)

Jovial – I love the Capellini. The trick is to not overcook and to rinse the pasta right after draining it.

Tinkyada – Lots of great shapes and good texture. Do not overcook. Rinse pasta.

  1. Nice!! the prospect of a strict gluten-free diet may seem daunting at first; but armed with the right knowledge, the gluten-free diet can be relatively easy to adapt to.
