Many gluten-free brands can be purchased online, but many can also be found at your local supermarket or natural foods store, consider avoiding shipping and handling charges by seeing if your store carries the product first.
To find gluten-free foods on the Internet, enter specific words into your favorite search engine. The results can keep you busy for hours. Try search terms such as gluten-free foods, gluten-free products, gluten-free cooking, gluten-free recipes, gluten-free companies, or gluten-free shopping, or type gluten-free in front of the product you are looking for, such as gluten-free bread, gluten-free brownies, and gluten-free pasta.
Online shopping is particularly a boon for those who live in small towns and areas where gluten-free products are not readily available. In some cases, online resources are the only way gluten-sensitive individuals can purchase their foods.
However, unless you are shopping online from a respected gluten-free product manufacturer or an Internet shopping mall dedicated exclusively to the sale of gluten-free products, you need to be on guard and do your investigative work. You need to learn of all of the ingredients in a product you are considering and if they are not available on the Web site, call the manufacturer directly. While you are asking about the ingredients don’t forget to ask if it is produced in a gluten-free environment, or how many ppms of gluten the product contains.
