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: Santitas Corn Chips
GLUTEN FREE FEATURED PRODUCT
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.
Santitas Corn Chips
The best cheap corn chips I've found, and gluten-free. Frito Lay is the parent company, and has been doing a fantastic job of both testing and labeling gluten-free products. They maintain a separate list on their website of items that are actually tested for gluten-and those which contain no gluten ingredients. It shows good gluten awareness that they make that distinction! Santitas chips, by the way, are on the list of products they actually test for gluten.
