Gluten free products are becoming more and more available in health food stores and in some major food chains. The following information is all about my favorite gluten free products and a more thorough list can be found with an internet search.
Gluten free products are the hope and desire of those who suffer from Celiac Disease, gluten allergy and gluten intolerance. The need for gluten free products is the number one question I receive from those who can’t eat gluten.
A gluten free products list is forever changing as new products come to market, but the best way to search for gluten free products and compile your own gluten free foods list is to stay away from any foods made from wheat, barley, rye, triticale or spelt and also by reading the ingredient list of any food that has an ingredient list.

Spelt Wheat Products (low gluten)
For those on Dr. Dahlman’s programs, products made from spelt are OK as they contain relatively low amounts of gluten compared to regular wheat and are usually tolerable. These products are not for those suffering from Celiac Disease.
Berlin Natural Bakery makes the best bread that seems like it’s regular whole wheat bread.
French Meadow also makes spelt wheat breads, some of which are yeast free.
Remember that new products come to market all the time. Pick a day to spend some time at your local natural foods store like Whole Foods and take you time looking at products you usually don’t look at to see what might be new. Have fun!
