Quick Tip: Gluten Free Shopping:
There are many naturally gluten free products in any grocery store. Price Chopper Supermarkets has an excellent selection of gluten free groceries and a comprehensive gluten free product list.

  While shopping for your gluten free pantry you must read the labels carefully. Shopping with a gluten free grocery list can seem overwhelming, however once you know the "rules" it is a breeze. First find a reputable list of ingredients to AVOID which definitely contain gluten such as wheat, rye, & barley. Contact your local Celiac Support Group, they are probably more than happy to help.

Knowledge = Power. If you are unsure if an ingredient has any hidden glutens or has been contaminated during manufacturing call the company or go on their web site. I call the 1-800 numbers on the label of food products all the time right in the grocery store. I always ask: What are your allergen procedures? Is this product gluten free? Are there any ingredients in your product that are derived from wheat, oats (because oats are usually contaminated), rye and/or barley? Last but not least, Is your product manufactured on the same/shared equipment with wheat, oats, rye, or barley? and if so do you do any kind of batch testing to ensure your product is gluten free? Five minutes later I have the answers I need to make an informed purchase. Most companies are more than happy to answer your questions. Remember that the person picking up the phone is there to help you and answer YOUR questions. Please always be polite.
