Gluten Free Foods List for Shopping
Before you go shopping please remember to read the page on
understanding food labels.
Keep the list of terms for hidden gluten with you when you go to the store so that you will spot those items that may contain barley or rye. Wheat, by law, must be listed in the allergen statement or within the ingredients label.
Walmart is exceptional because they have many foods that are labeled gluten free in their house brand. These are available at Walmart Super Centers nationwide for the most part. If you are within driving distance of a Walmart Super Center it will be well worth your while to go and find some foods at reasonable prices. Their Great Value brand has over 900 products labeled gluten free.
These Great Value brand products on my gluten free foods list are gf in my area (Southwest). Some of the products might be made by different suppliers in other parts of the country, so you will need to check the label to be sure.
Items Not Labeled as Gluten Free
Additional products do not list wheat in the allergen statement or the ingredients list. If they do not contain barley, or rye they are still gluten free. (Oats should be avoided for the first year on the diet, or if you react to them.) They may have been produced in a facility that also processes wheat, milk or other allergens however. That means there is some risk of cross contamination from particles in the air or on a shared line.
This is generally a very tiny amount, but if you are VERY sensitive, you might still react. In my experience, most of the time I have no problem with it, but occasionally I come across a product I do react to. I am prone to react to VERY tiny amounts though so that may not be the case for you. It is a situation where you have to try it and see. There are not many dedicated facilities for foods.
Grains are an exception. Due to the manner of transport, sorting and grinding, you need to try and get dedicated facility flours and grains.
I have a gluten free foods list of Walmart's Great Value brand items and a list of other brands of foods they carry that are also gluten free.
This will help you to get a wide variety of in one place. This will be a big help with the diet. All items below are gluten free and casein free unless noted differently.
The rest of the list can be reached from the Shopping page linked at the bottom of this page. It is a hub page for the entire list.

Note: Non-dedicated Facility means other items containing gluten and/or casein are produced in the facility and that there is a chance of cross contamination. This is also true of many items that are not marked as such, but Walmart does require their manufacturers to say so on the label.
