Frequently Asked Questions
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley that acts as the “glue” to bind food together while providing structure to products.
Gluten-free food can be expensive; however, there are many different ways to cut costs. From purchasing naturally gluten-free foods such as fruits, vegetables, meats, and dairy products to making your own gluten-free flour blend to use as needed. Also, freeze leftover gluten-free breads such as sandwich bread, buns, bagels, and muffins to extend the shelf life. If possible, purchase large quantities at warehouse stores but steer away from bulk bins due to cross-contamination concerns.
Reading labels is the best way to find celiac-safe foods. Purchasing products that are labeled gluten-free is ideal; however, always double-check the ingredient list before buying. Look for red-flag words: wheat, rye, oats, barley, malt, Brewer’s yeast, dextrin, modified food starch, and starch in the ingredient list.
