Gluten Free Food List - What Can You Eat?

The gluten free food list below contains many tasty ingredients and will reassure you that you won't starve on a gluten free diet!

The list includes basic foodstuffs to include in your gluten free pantry, along with some that may sound unfamiliar.

But don't rule out foods if you have not used them before.

I have created a separate page for all the foods containing gluten that you will need to avoid if you are coeliac or gluten intolerant.

New ingredients?

Try to look at new ingredients as a challenge. Although strange to you, in some parts of the world they may be considered a staple food.

I will share some amazing things that you can do with these unusual ingredients. 

You don't need to be a gourmet chef to serve up tasty gluten free meals. Basic cooking skills will be more than enough. You may need to learn some new methods, but they are not difficult. 

For example, gluten free bread is made from a batter rather than a dough - but a little practice will soon have you producing successful, safe, baked goods and tasty treats that all the family will enjoy.

So let's tuck in!
