This part of my life began when my very sick partner was diagnosed with Celiac. Even the slightest exposure to gluten can make him very ill for several days, so I have pursued gluten-free options with thorough aggression. In the U.S. a recent surge of gluten awareness means we have more choices than ever, but it still means hunting and analyzing and tracking down parent companies. After several years now of doing so, I want to share my tricks and tips with others who are still struggling.

Gluten-Free Featured Product: Peter Pan Peanut Butter


A regular postings of gluten-free products that I use myself and are available in my local grocery store.  You can check your local store for these items, order them online, or ask your store to stock them. I do not have any relationship with the companies in question, nor do I receive any form of compensation for these reviews. Gluten-Free status is based on information from the manufacturer, the current Cecelia's Marketplace shopping guide and personal experience, and may change if the company changes formulation or manufacturing processes.

 Peter Pan Peanut Butter

I try to avoid corn syrup, primarily because it makes things too sweet.  Peter Pan doesn't use corn syrup, and they're the best reasonably-priced peanut butter that's listed as gluten-free by Cecelia's Marketplace Guide or package labeled.  I particularly like the crunchy to make GF peanut butter cookies :-) 


  1. Peter Pan's website does not claim the peanut butter is gluten-free; instead they say merely that they do not ADD any gluten products to their peanut butter. So it's implied there could be gluten contaminants in there.

  2. I go by the Cecelia's Marketplace Gluten-Free shopping guide, which I have found to be a very reliable source of gluten information. My reviewed products are also those that my partner has eaten and not reacted to (he is sensitive below 20ppm). Manufacturers are often hesitant to list items as gluten free on their website because of liability issues when they are in fact safe. You should always make your own informed decisions, however, and avoid any product you believe is a risk.
