Gluten free vegetables are an important part of your diet if you have celiac disease.
- But what is a vegetable and what is a grain?
- Which are gluten free and which aren't?
I hope this page will help to make things clearer,
It is safest to buy vegetables in their natural state i.e. raw, uncooked, and unpeeled. If you buy them ready prepared it does save time, but you run the risk of contamination.
I can tell you from experience that is is frustrating to go to make a stir fry for supper and then see a note on the packet to say the vegetables were not prepared in a gluten free environment! At least everyone else enjoyed their meal, even if I had to go without.
Also beware vegetables coated in sauces, as wheat flour may have been used to thicken the sauce.
