Gluten Free Foods for Gluten Allergy and Celiac

by Allergy Guy

Gluten allergy or celiac disease means avoiding many foods.  There is much you can eat, food is still interesting!  Here is a list of gluten free food ingredients.

This is not a list of gluten free recipes.  You can find these else where on the site.  Instead you will find the amazing variety of food that is still open to you!  A gluten free diet is a lot less restrictive when you realize how much gluten free food is out there.

Of course you will still have to get used to new food on a gluten free diet.  On the other hand, much of what you are already used to is probably still OK, assuming you eat a healthy diet.  You may have to modify recipes to eliminate wheat.

The purpose of this list is to get you away from moping about all the foods you can’t eat, and focused on all the foods you can eat.

This process took me years.  It was a real struggle at first.  Back in the 80’s there was no internet and no easily accessible list of tasty alternatives.

Even a gluten-free cookbook, while useful, does not give you a nice overview of the shear variety of foods out there.

Baking is the biggest challenge.  This list does not really help with baking.  But it does help with a growing list of gluten free foods.

Remember to visit here again for new gluten-free ideas every so often as the list is slowly expanding over time.

Gluten Free Foods List

The following list links to full articles about the ingredients listed.  Some categories of gluten free food are so large that several articles are required to cover the subject.  For example, fish makes the basis for an excellent gluten free meal.  There are so many types of fish that the list is very long, and is organized by various types of fish.

I am interested in any recipes or alternatives you may have my diet is very limited and frustrating( I am sending for my son he is 9) can’t have cake with his friends and he gets upset he wants to lead a normal life I pack his lunch. But we have 5 children only one with celiac and it is expensive I lost my job so my husband works hard to put food on the table and buy Noah his special food he has to eat some things he doesn’t care for so he doesn’t eat gluten but I would like some recipes if you have any to send, he would be so grateful.

My daughter (22) suspects that she is allergic to gluten. When she has her ‘episodes’ she has usually eaten something like macaroni & cheese or some other pasta. She gets very severe back pain & feels like something in her back is going to explode. She has stomach aches alot. She really wants me to make an appointment with a Dr. but I think she should try watching her gluten intake & see how she feels first. We don’t have insurance you see. What is your opinion?

Good question, Alisa, thanks for asking it. You can read this article on Diagnosing Suspected Gluten Sensitivity which I wrote for you.

At 43 I have discovered that I have a gluten allergy and I have tried to be careful and read the labels. I have not used real sugar in my coffee for about 12 years, and the brand I buy states on the box that is is gluten free, the creamer also has this on the label – I have recently learned that this may not be the case! Can manufacturers label Gfree and the product actually contain Gluten. This is getting confusing!

Generally speaking, as far as I know, yes to all of the above. It would be a good idea to check with specific manufacturers just to be sure.

My step-mother and father are visiting. She has celiac disease and I would like to accomodate her. Can she eat something that contains “yeast extract” with her wheat intolerance (i.e., taco seasoning mix)?

Possibly. I suggest you call the manufacturer and ask them. If you get a chance, do please report what you found here. Thanks!

What about vegetables like broccoli, green beans, and squash? And things like cranberry sauce (canned and home-made with chipped clad)? We’re have a guest at Thanksgiving this year who has a gluten allergy and, although she has stressed that she doesn’t want us to re-do our Thanksgiving menu to accommodate her allergy, I feel like if I know far enough ahead of time that certain vegetables and fruits and desserts are in or out. I want to try to work discreetly around the gluten issue if I can.

Hi Jan,

Your guest will really appreciate the extra effort you’re going to, I can tell you that from experience!

If you’re cooking from scratch, you are safe with any fruit or vegetable, or meat as long as it’s not processed. Broccoli, green beans, and squash? Perfect! Canned cranberry sauce should be good, but always check the ingredients because you never know! As for making your own, that should be fine, but I don’t know what you mean by ‘chipped clad’

If you’re doing turkey as the center of the meal, that’s great, just watch out for the stuffing if you’re doing one. I’m pretty sure there’s a gluten-free stuffing recipe somewhere on this website somewhere. Brown rice, quinoa or amaranth would make good starting points to replace breadcrumbs.

Does this mean that pork and chicken should be excluded from my diet, as
they are not in your gluten free food list?
Also what about fruit?
Thanks.

Hi Andry,

This list is not yet complete. pork, chicken and fruit are in and of themselves gluten-free, but they could be prepared with gluten (breaded, chicken sticks, fruit pies etc.) If you prepare them yourself, you’re fine!

There is a lot you can eat! The above list is not yet complete. Add to it a variety of bean products and you have many choices for protein.

Right now this list is expanding by three to five items per week. Come back regularly for more ideas!

If you have some of your own, please leave a comment and share them. Thanks.
