Gluten Free Kitchen is a new Australian made product and is the “first and only brand in Australian to specifically fortify all of their products with …vitamins and minerals to enable people to live a truly healthy gluten free lifestyle.”
Products available are Coconut Flour, Self Raising Flour, Plain Flour, Pasta, Pancake Mix, Chocolate Cake Mix, Breakfast Smoothie and Diet Shake.
I am yet to try the product but I have seen them stocked at the Calanna Pharmacy on Ross River Road Aitkenvale. Check the advertisement below to find our the other pharmacists which are stocking Gluten Free Kitchen.
Where do you shop?
Gluten free shopping is complicated or at least for towns and cities in regional Australia. Gone are the days when I would patronise only one supermarket as gluten free is such a small target market and only a limited amount of shelf space is given to these products. Supermarkets specialise, stocking only specific products and brands, and I find myself patronising at least 6 stores and purchasing several products on-line directly from the supplier.
In the last 12 months, I have seen some of my “tried and liked” gluten free products disappear from the supermarkets as Coles and Woolworths shift their focus on their own branded gluten free products “Simply Gluten Free” and “Macro”.
On the weekend, I found “Delectably Gluten Free” an on-line gluten free shopping website based in our city, but delivering regionally as well. Not only are they stocking “Springhill Farm” gluten free bread mixes and biscuits, they have Glutino pretzels (not stocked in the supermarkets) and a few other new products I am looking forward to trying out.
Perfect for those families who are tight on time and for anyone who just wants to stop driving all around to source their favourite gluten free products.
Their website is user friendly and Ashley and Naomi are happy to look at sourcing other products for their customers as well.
I have my order in, I have a recipe in mind for the pretzels (Gluten Free Spicy Cracker and Nut Mix, a Bhuja type savoury snack) and I look forward to seeing what other products become available.
I have put together this alphabetical list by product to help you locate those gluten free products that you have read about or that you have heard about but you just don’t know where to buy it.
When we first started our gluten free journey we drove many kilometers to try to find what shops stocked which products. It was an exhausting and time consuming exercise. Hopefully this list will give you back a little time.
