Online Gluten Free Shopping

 

Q: Where do I shop?

A: Depends….

Yes gluten free shopping depends on likes and dislikes, price, accessibility and convenience

While Coles and Woolworths are my main two supermarkets, I have a couple of online shops that I buy from as well.  I might pay a little more for freight, but if you find a product that works for your gluten free eater, then it is worth it.  In those early days of diagnosis, when gluten free was so overwhelming, I visited every possible local shop and deli searching for gluten free products.  This was part of my research, to find out what our options were.  In time, I have settled into a routine.  We have in our minds, our ‘gluten free’ shopping list with where to buy the relevant product.  Why is it that Woolworths only sell Burgen Gluten Free White Bread and Barilla Gluten Free Pasta whereas Coles only sells Jase’s small Gluten Free Pizzas. And sometimes it is easier to order my  ‘Well & Good ‘ gf flours and bread mixes from Gluten Free Direct rather than have to make a special and inconvenient trip to a health food store inside our largest shopping centre.

I’d like to think that there is merit in the concept of  gluten free shoppers in small towns/suburbs  forming  co-operatives and buying online in bulk.

Here a a couple of  places for online gluten free shopping:

El Cielo – an online Mexican shop with tostadas, corn chips and corn tortillas

Live Free Gluten Free – offering bread, pastry and chicken seasoning mixes

The Gluten Free Shop – is the perfect online gluten free shop for people living regionally or remotely

Absolutely Gluten Free – for a range of products including Schar Pizza Bases

Gluten Free Direct – online supplier of ‘Well & Good’ gluten free products: bread, cake, biscuit mixes and Pudding in a Mug

House of Biskota – order online from a range of 11 gluten free biscuits

Attending your state Gluten Free Expo gives you exposure to products you might not have yet found in your local area.  At the Brisbane Expo in May, LFGF had a stand showcasing their three products : bread mix, chicken seasoning mix and pastry mix.

Thank god for LFGF’s chicken seasoning mix as it has a big tick of approval from both my IMG_0603teenagers.  We call it JFC – Joanne’s Fried Chicken and my sons say it is better than KFC.  It can also be used for gravies.

The pastry mix makes tasty pizza scrolls and quiches. The pastry is easy to handle as long as you roll it between two sheets of baking paper.

I am yet to try out the bread mix, but at the Expo their sample tortillas were durable and pliable and didn’t fall apart.

If you can’t find it in a shop, then buy the product on-line.
