Gluten Free Food Manufacturers

May 23, 2013 Emily Murray Chicago 0 Comments

Gluten Free Food Manufacturers

A gluten-free diet doesn’t have to be a jail sentence. Many food producers have created special lines of gluten-free foods to satiate the pickiest of eaters, whether they are picky by choice or not. But before we talk about GF food producers, let’s look at whole foods that are gluten free on their own.

Foods that don’t have gluten naturally

You don’t have to buy food in a package that says “gluten-free” in order for it to actually be gluten free. Many foods are naturally that way.

Remember, gluten is found in wheat. Think of all the foods we eat that don’t contain wheat! The following list of foods are naturally gluten free, but keep in mind that all of these foods should be fresh or plain, no seasonings or other additives. If they aren’t, be sure to read the label close.

  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Meats
  • Beans
  • Nuts
  • Rice
  • Potatoes
  • Sugar, honey, and molasses

Popular gluten-free food producers

After you’ve created a diet centered on the fresh and plain gluten-free foods listed above, then you can begin to look at store bought foods made with gluten alternatives. Here’s a list of some of the most popular gluten-free food producers.

  • Bye Bye Gluti – Breads, pastas, pizzas, and Italian desserts
  • Cream Hill Estates – Rolled oats, oat flour, and oat kernels
  • Crunchmaster – Crackers made with rice, quinoa, and seeds.
  • Daiya – Gluten free and vegan cheeses
  • Domata Living Flour – Gluten-free flour
  • Full Flavor Foods – Gluten-free soups, stocks, and sauces
  • The Grain Exchange – Baked goods including cakes, cookies, and brownies
  • Kettle Cuisine – Soups
  • Rebecca & Devyn's Gluten-Free To Go – Snack packs including cookies, pretzels, and crackers
  • Rudi’s – Bakery items such as bread, rolls, and pizza crusts
  • Udi’s – Breads of all kinds

*This is not a complete list of gluten-free food manufacturers.
