Gluten Free Foods: There are numerous lists of gluten free foods available to coeliacs and the carers of coeliac patients. Lists of gluten-free foods are an invaluable source of information, especially in the early days of implementing a gluten-free diet.

The first and evident of the lists of gluten-free foods is the one from the UK Coeliac Society. Coeliac Societies in other countries also produce lists of gluten-free foods. They can be hardcopy booklets or bound books – or many now create “soft” copies of lists of gluten-free foods; i.e., on websites. These can be consulted, sorted, copied and viewed online.
Other lists of gluten-free foods are produced by the supermarket chains – Tesco, Safeway, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s all produce records of gluten-free foods on their websites, or you can ring them, and they can send you a hard-copy one.

Often forgotten are lists of gluten-free foods produced by restaurant chains. These include fast-food chains, such as McDonald’s and Burger King. But it also contains restaurants such as Nandos, Frangos, Wagamamas, etc. These lists of gluten-free foods detail the specific dishes on the menus which are gluten-free, or they relate which recipes are gluten-free providing particular items are omitted.
Other lists of gluten-free foods are the ones which we make ourselves or pass on to our friends and family. I’ve made a list below with some gluten-free foods which I’ve picked up during the past eight years while coping with the gluten-free diet for my growing daughter.

List of the Gluten Free Foods:

Herewith follows my addition to the lists of gluten free foods; how to prepare, cook, pack lunches and entertain gluten-free!
  1. Gluten-free bread can be dry and “crumbly.” To refresh it, zap it in the microwave for 10-20 seconds, and it will be moist and more pleasant to eat.
  2. Bechamel sauce made with cornstarch instead of wheat flour.
  3. Spread peanut butter on rice cakes. Great for breakfast or tea-time treat!
  4. Pancakes with buckwheat flour (called “blinis” in Russia).
  5. Most Amaretti biscuits are gluten-free. Check the ingredients first though.
  6. Bind sauces with cornstarch instead of flour.
  7. Make gluten-free bread with a bread-maker.
  8. Prepare “Sushi” or “onigiri” for lunch boxes.
  9. Have a supply of gluten-free sweets where the child can “trade-in” gluten-containing sweets or treats for gluten-free ones.
  10. Angel Delight – a fast, easy dessert which you can have in the cupboard. Decorated with some fresh/frozen fruit one can create an instant dessert which can impress.
  11. Use separate butter/margarine dishes.
  12. Coconut macaroons are gluten-free or make your own.
