Gluten-Free Recipes

Gluten is a protein that is found in wheat, rye, barley, and another grain called triticale. As a result, gluten appears in a variety of products, from granola bars to fried foods and even hot dogs. People with celiac disease cannot digest gluten, meaning that they must eliminate all gluten from their diet. Although celiac disease is relatively uncommon, many other people find that they are gluten-sensitive and that eating too much gluten causes gastrointestinal problems. This is often known as non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Symptoms may include diarrhea, indigestion, nausea and vomiting, joint pain, heartburn, and weight loss. Fortunately, eliminating gluten from the diet typically causes these symptoms to dissipate.

Following a gluten-free diet can be tricky at first. Food additives and binding agents often contain gluten, which can make it very challenging to shop for gluten free foods. Making your own recipes at home allows you to control the ingredients you add, ensuring that the results do not upset your gastrointestinal system. And if you're looking for gluten-free food, you've come to the right place! With hundreds of Certified Gluten-Free products, we take extra care with the purity of our gluten-free food with a dedicated gluten-free production line in a separate area of our warehouse. You can find the GF logo on each gluten-free food page.

To help you put these foods to good use, the following gluten free recipes are bursting with flavor and full of nutritious compounds. Plus, many of them are or, with a few simple modifications, can easily be made dairy-free or vegan. Give these recipes a try today to eliminate gluten from your diet.
