Gluten-Free Shopping Tips
Whether you’re planning your grocery list or you’ve already started shopping, use these helpful tips to set yourself up for success.
Check ingredients lists: Keep your eye out for ingredients that contain gluten, such as barley, wheat and rye. Even if a food appears to be gluten-free, you should always double-check the label.
Look for gluten-free certifications: Foods with a gluten-free certification on their labels have been third-party tested to meet the requirements for gluten and food labeling opens in a new tab set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Try our 365 brand: For all your fridge and pantry stocking needs, all of our 365 by Whole Foods Market products that are labeled as "gluten-free" have been third-party tested and certified.
Wheat-free doesn’t mean gluten-free: Foods that are labeled as “wheat-free” may also contain barley, rye or spelt. Read ingredient lists carefully.
Search products by special diet: Looking for your favorite gluten-free crackers? Stocking up on almond flour? You can quickly check product availability in your store by selecting the gluten-free filter.
We’re here to help: Looking for your favorite gluten-free bread or frozen pizza? Ask a team member for help locating hard-to-find items or visit the service desk in your store.
